Tunisian Crochet at YarnCon

cellcozy2_0468A

Ok, I am just too excited about teaching Tunisian Crochet at YarnCon in Chicago. This year the indie fiber fair will be on April 18 & 19 2015.

I’ll be teaching a class on Tunisian crochet in the round on April 19, using a double ended Tunisian crochet hook. Above is a small class project, designed to be an iPhone cozy, but it fits my reader glasses perfectly! This is just one example of the many things you can do with Tunisian crochet worked in the round. Class is listed as Tunisian crochet cellphone cozy I’d love to see you there.

Beisdes that I’ll be teaching a class on beginning Tunisian crochet. If you’ve always wanted to give Tunisian crochet a try this is the class for you. Short and sweet, it covers the basics. Above, a swatch showing some basic Tunisian crochet stitches.

In more Tunisian crochet news, I’ve been working on a beautiful project using Tunisian crochet short rows. The pattern is Tunisian Shell Shawl by Elena Fedotova. It’s not a free pattern but is worth paying for. The instructions are detailed and excellent. This is an intermediate level project, a beautiful one to polish your Tunisian crochet skills with.

Here’s a close up of the stitch detail. See my Ravelry project page for for technical details.

Totally unrelated to crochet, the selection of old time candy at local frozen custard shop Lickity Split on Western Ave. in Chicago.

      Thanks. Tunisian crochet is a bit different from regular crochet but it isn’t any more difficult. Definitely something to check out if you’re interested in expanding your pallette of crochet techniques.
