Find out how to use Tunisian crochet to create knit-look lace and cables. In this advanced beginner-level crochet class, Tunisian expert Kim Guzman builds upon the basic Tunisian stitches by adding easy-to-learn cables and lace stitches. Kim's thorough and relaxing instructional style will give you confidence to learn these beautiful stitches while crocheting three pretty projects.
This online video crochet class begins with a description of Tunisian crochet, and demonstrates how to open and close stitches and the similarity to standard crochet. You'll learn about the different Tunisian hooks used and how to hold them, and get a step-by-step of chain and an anatomy of stitches.
You will also learn how to crochet a basic lace stitch and will be on your way to crocheting the beautiful Tri-Lace Scarf, the perfect introductory Tunisian lace project that is a stepping stone for learning additional skills. With the delicate Tri-Lace Shawlette project, you will expand upon the same tri-lace stitch pattern but with the addition of working short rows to form the unique shaping. This gives you a chance to make a true lace project that you'll also love wearing to display your newly-discovered skills.
Finally, Kim will teach you how to work cables in Tunisian crochet, providing several different methods of crossing the stitches to form the cable. The versatile Laced Cables Wrap pattern can also be used to make a scarf, shawl, baby blanket and throw. Pattern options for these are included with the crochet class.
