Tunisian Crocheting 108

A new twist on an old technique! This method of crocheting was known in the 1960's and 70's as the afghan stitch. The net result yields a fabric that is thicker and denser and has an interesting texture. Worked row-by-row, all the way across and all the way back. The hook is longer and has a button-like stopper at the end, similar to a knitting needle, to keep stitches from falling off. the stitches are worked on a foundation of chain stitches and then rows are worked in two passes, the first worked right to left across the foundation and the second worked left to right, creating the horizontal strand of the stitches. Tools, materials and basic of the foundation and basic stitches will be taught in class. You will be able to start of project of your choice for the last class. You should have basic crocheting skills, including chaining and single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. The purchase of a Tunisian hook, yarn and book will be recommended by the instructor as a text for stitches and projects. Supplies: Afghan crochet hook by Susan Bates, H-8, 10" or larger; #4 worsted weight yarn for practice (variegated yarn highlights stitches), Get Hooked onTunisian Crochet by Sheryl Thies (available at or Amazon).
