Tunisian crochet can create everything from wonderfully warm and thick fabric to lace that is light as air. In this hands-on introduction to Tunisian crochet, students will learn basic Tunisian stitches and troubleshooting. We will be making swatches in class.

Participants should bring:

  • two skeins of yarn, light colored but with some contrast for colorwork, in light (CYC 3) or medium (CYC 4) weight, and one skein of superfine (CYC 1) weight yarn. (They don’t have to be full skeins, just more than half; 200–300 yards of each should suffice.)
  • their own hooks. An elongated hook (with interchangeable cables or a solid long one similar to a knitting needle) is typically used, but any crochet hook with a straight shaft (without a widened thumb grip or an extra handle) will work. Bring multiple sizes of hooks, if possible, since the hook used for Tunisian crochet varies depending on what the goal is for the finished fabric.
