I seem to recall that 30 years ago (more or less) it was called the Afghan Stitch. I never really did find it too appealing. However, in this ‘modern’ age, so many different things are being done with it. And as popularity would have it, we now more commonly call it Tunisian Crochet.
So, I thought I would try my hand at “Tunisian Crochet”. I got some new hooks in the mail recently . . .
Before braving the double-ended swivels, I thought, ‘how about a good old-fashioned dishcloth?” Thank you YouTube! This was easy enough to accomplish! The first thing I discovered is that I cannot hold the hook the way I usually do. But, that was an easy adjustment.
The most basic stitch . . .
It seems now I need a new book to learn to use these lovely double-ended swivels! So, today I ordered this:
What I did get was this book along with all my new hooks.
However, I soon learned that none of the hooks I did get are really conducive to completing any of the projects in the book. Rats! (Just my luck.) Joanne’s . . . here I come!
What a conundrum! 😀 That is what’s on my hook today. Anyone have any favorite books, or links to share??? Purrrty please?
