  1. This Easy Tunisian Hat uses a double-pointed Tunisian crochet hook, DK yarn, and tunisian knit stitch to create a simple knit-look hat. It comes sized for toddler, child, small adult, and large adult. It also makes a great neck warmer if you don't close up the top of the hat! https://kickincrochet.com/easy-tunisian-hat/
  2. I finally finished a project! I've had this design in my head for quite a while and finally sat down and worked it up. It was quite easy once I got it started and figured out the left side. It's called Pixel Matrix.
  3. Hello all & Happy Holidays! I just finished this Schmetterwurm scarf. I’m quite happy with it. I used Lion Brand Mandala in Spirit. It's a free pattern too! https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/schmetterwurm
  4. My Tunisian Points pattern is part of the June 2017 issue of knotions. I love textured items. This scarf uses Tunisian Simple Stitch (tss) and Tunisian Reverse Stitch (trs) to create diagonal stripes of texture. The elongated triangle shape wraps comfortably to add a highlight to any outfit it is paired with. There are increases and decreases to shape the piece. The pattern as written uses DK yarn, but could be made with a heavier weight to make it more of a small shawl. I hope you like it, favoritie it on Ravelry and spread the word (both about my pattern and knotions)
  5. My Christmas present to myself arrived, namely the Denise brand set of crochet hooks in standard sizes with attachable cords. I've never worked with them before and boy to I need help! What is the best way to grip the hook for the return passes? With a standard tunisian hook I just use the part with no stitches on it, but with these corded hooks that's not an option. Does anybody have any tips or tricks on how best to hold the work and corded hook? It's the return passes that are frustrating me -- casting the stitches on isn't difficult. Thank you!
  6. Help! Is anyone really good at entrelac in a rectangle? Once per project I end up finishing a square in a valley – in the joint of the L. I know at this point I need to bind off and start again on a different part of the work on the next row. However I still end up back in the valley and the project doesn't look right. I'm not sure how to fix that section. Has anyone else ever encountered this, and if so what's the answer? I am grateful for any help anyone can provide. I'm self-taught, so I apologize for my lack of knowledge. Thanks!
  7. I have some variegated yarn that I want to use to make something that shows off the color transitions. I thought about a "traditional" Tunisian 10 stitch type blanket but would really like to make it round. I have found round coasters or tubes but those aren't really what I'm looking for. I'm wanting to do a flat spiral round. Has anyone seen anything like this??? Thanks!
  8. I'm playing around with a Tunisian Simple Stitch. I have to say it's really fun and I enjoy it! BUT, I'm still learning and having a hard time with the left edge. I've lost stitches along the way and can't figure out why or how and if I can add a stitch. I'm watching videos and it seems like I'm doing what they instruct me to do. Does anyone know how or if I can add in stitches or any tips to watch out for at the end? This is really for practice more than anything and I'm fine to restart but I want to make sure I'm understanding the concept before I start again. Photo attached.
  9. This is my take on a Tunisian Entrelac Tote Bag from a Ravelry pattern. The colors turned out so nice and summer like. It reminds me of a beach ball.
  10. Hi everyone. I've been doing tunisian crochet for a while now, but I'm just starting to get irritated enough with my loose right-side edge that I'm reaching out for some help. Either I've dreamed it, or it really exists and I can't find it, but I could have sworn there was a trick to making sure the right edge of tunisian crochet stays snug. Anyone have any advice?
  11. Hello! Can anyone help me understand how to work a front post double crochet in Tunisian? The pattern I'm using is very confusing. I found a video tutorial, but the video had been removed. The pattern I'm working on is Keep Me In Stiches from TOP TECHNIQUES & SPECIAL STICH AFGHANS from The Needlecraft Shop. Thanks so much!
  12. I bought some sparkly Red Heart Celebration yarn on clearance after Christmas. It's a bright colored yarn in jewel tones with a metallic silver thread that runs through it. The label had some Christmas ornaments that you could crochet with it. Anyway, the yarns colors reminded me of jesters and Mardi Gras. So I decided to make another poncho in tunisian crochet using a size J hook with a flexible extension cord. Here's the poncho I came up with. It's made by crocheting two rectangular panels, (7 squares by 17 squares each), and then attaching the panel together by joining the
  13. I made these fingerless mitts in a CAL run by CrochetKim on Yahoo Groups. The first set ended up a bit small for the intended recipient (they're snug on my tiny hands), so I made another pair in the same yarn using a bigger hook. The recipient loved them.
  14. For those of you crocheters in CT, Creative Fibers just put out their Summer Newsletter and Class Schedule! In particular, they have a Tunisian class this time around, and they are going to make baby blanket squares! I'm tempted to try that one, as I have a friend who's expecting. Just go to their site and click on "Newsletter" and "Class Schedule." http://www.creativefibersonline.com/

  16. When my Leisure Art rep called on Monday to say the books had "finally" shipped - well after all the delays (it was supposed to be in March) I tried to stay "calm" Expected the delivery last this week, BUT THEY CAME TODAY First I played hookey for an hour or so, then I packed orders and now I am letting you all know ITS HERE: 9 Skill and Wardrobe building projects with great illustrations.

  17. I have published a pattern on Ravelry for Kiki, a Tunisian crochet vest pattern using primarily the honeycomb stitch. If you are familiar with Tunisian crochet, I think you will enjoy making this vest. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kiku-vest
  18. I've recently been getting into Tunisian and Entrelac crochet. After a bit of a mishap making an Entrelac bag and then finishing with single crochet I realized I needed a better way to finish off such work. The single crochet has much, much less elasticity than the Tunisian Simple Stitch; which made my work turn out a little wonky when I combined the two. After a quick bit of research I discoverd that you can Tunisian in the round but it requires a double sided hook or a set of enterchangable hook loops. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of reviews out there on these hooks and loop set
