A Beginner’s Guide to Tunisian Crochet Table of Contents Introduction Crochet Tips For beginners Basic information about crochet How to Hold a Crochet Needle Starting to Crochet Chain stitch Double Stitch and Turning Crochet Stitch Symbols Abbreviations for Crochet Terms Making a Tunisian Needle Hook Introduction to Tunisian Crochet Starting on Tunisian Crochet Easy Tunisian Crochet Scarf Run Out Of Yarn? Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction One of the most popular traditional creative art forms, apart from weaving, knitting, or knotted work is crochet. In Victorian times, women used to spend hours making crochet covers to cover every visible surface, including furniture, and furnishings. This is of course apart from the dresses, scarfs, shoes, doilies, purses, pillow covers and anything else of which you could think, made by just one hook and some sturdy, colorful thread. Well, these women did not have much else with which to occupy their time, and they were just practicing an art which has been around for millenniums. Nobody really knows where crochet originated, although people in the East have been practicing it to make delicate patterned items for millenniums. That is why this book is going to tell you about Tunisian crochet. Crochet came to the West, especially to Europe in around the 16th century, when the demand for delicate lace like items made women switch to this technique. But I have a feeling, that this technique was brought to Europe, much before this, by the Crusaders, coming back from the East, and it was only in the 16th century that the nuns of France, Spain and Italy began to concentrate more on this technique to produce things of beauty. Lace crochet is still very popular today, and the art is applied to making handkerchiefs and table linen. Even more popular today is crochet using heavy and soft and fine wool to make articles of clothing and even things for your living room. I would call them dust catchers, but they last and last. So is it a surprise that time and again, old lace patterns serve to stimulate ideas for producing beautiful items, which have been inspired by some creative person who decided to pick up a crochet hook and some thread and found a magical new creative technique. Tunisian crochet and adapting it for making beautiful creations with one knitting needle made into a hook is my contribution to this age-old technique which was going out of vogue. So you can consider this book to be a salute to Tunisian crochet, which is going to be a boon for all those people who just hate knitting, but want to knit sweaters, scarves and other items, without the botheration of two needles. Tunisian crochet is also known as Afghan crochet and is considered to be a mixture of crochet and knitting. Ladies normally made a number of shapes on their hooks and when they had made 50 or so squares of the same size, they stitched them together to make huge shawls and wraparounds. These are the so popular Afghans which you wear today. So if you are crocheting squares with a crochet needle, intending to join the strips together with cross stitches to make an afghan, try making it in Tunisian crochet.

Do you want to learn how to do beautiful crochet patterns in one day? Then this is the right book for you! Crochet is a way to make yarn or crochet threads with a crochet pin. In fact, the word crochet means' hook.' When you start a crochet project, simply start with a knot, and insert the crochet hook within the loop, coil the hook and pull it through the first loop. Continue to wrap yarn around hook and pull it into the last loop until it is desirable. Every loop is called a chain because it passes through the previous loop. Once the chains are made, a circle can be formed and worked in rounds by a slip knot to join the last chain or just turn the chains and work in rows. If you work in rows, the job is turned at the end of each row, but when you job in rounds it is possible to turn on or off. The patterns let you know when and when you should not transform.
