I have a new love … Tunisian crochet!! I took the Craftsy Tunsian class and have to say I am hooked, hooked, hooked!

Here are my first projects … 

These are washcloths made from a pattern in the class … one worked in one color and one practicing the 3 color technique … not bad, huh?

Tunisian crochet washcloths

For this one I got a little bit brave and added some extra rows in the middle to make it into a hand towel instead of a washcloth.  Excuse its appearance already … it has been in constant use wiping off sticky little fingers  🙂 .

So, do any of you love Tunisian too? If so, what project or stitch should I tackle next?

    My tunisian looks nothing like this! Hmm I’m doing an Aoibhe Ni pattern in laceweight with a huge hook though, so I think my stitches are supposed to be different.

    Love the hand towel. i would love to go into my bathroom and see things I’ve made. Really must get onto that…

    I have never tried tunisian crochet as yet, but now I will have to add it to my very long ‘to-do’ list !! :-))

    I absolutely adore Tunisian crochet! I really should do it more often. I love your towel. What kind of yarn did you use for it?

    I especially like the 3 color red black n green one. It looks so good! I had tried it once but gave up soon..should try again 🙂

    I have never tried a Tunisian project (havent sadly had a lot of time for crocheting at all this winter), but these are gorgeous. Kind of makes you think they’re worthy of being more than dishcloths, lol. Really nice, Kara.

    These are great and I’m amazed at how much this looks like knitting! Is tunisian crochet difficult?

    My favorite Tunisian pattern is the Tunisian Miter Throw from I’ve made it varying the size of the hook to make a bigger or smaller blanket. Have used it twice for a baby blanket.

    I tried Tunisian a while ago, and I liked it too! But I have not used it much because it turns out rather thick. I think it is perfect for wash cloths, rugs ad cozy blankets. But I cannot deny it is a super fun technique to do 😉

    I love tunisian crochet. I am currently working on a baby blanket using the Tunisian Entrelac stitch. I don’t have a camera so I can’t upload a pic of it sorry. I learned how to do this stitch by watching a video on I just love how it is turning out. You should give this stitch a try, I think you will love it as much as you do the basic Tunisian stitch. 🙂

    I am just learning to tunisian crochet – my problem is i am working on squares and I have some serious burritos happening. Mine are massively rolling.

    I’d sign up through your link Kara but I’m already enrolled! LOL 🙂 You did a lovely job – I like the hand towel especially!
