Yet another Craftsy.com class–Tunisian Crochet with Jennifer Hansen. What a great class! Nice projects, good patterns, and a stitch dictionary for future use in your own projects. This a fun technique that has so much variation. The first project is a spa cloth. It teaches the basic stitches.
Then the fun part, a “Multi Garment” that is two large panels of crochet. The pattern calls for making the 2 panels and attaching them with ties to wear in 8 different ways. Or, you can make just one panel and wear it 4 different ways. Or, you can decide after one repeat of the stitch pattern that you’d really just like to wear it as a scarf and move on. I love the pattern and I loved doing this project, but I know I will wear this more as a scarf, so I finished it and added knitted fringe.
The pattern calls for 4 solid colors of a dk silk. After much comtemplation, I turned to my stash and chose 4 slighty variegated colors of super soft wools. One of these days I’ll try the silk, but for now, I have too much yarn to buy something so luxurious and expensive. Besides, I really like the finished product. I’d like to design something using Tunisian crochet techniques and teach a class.
