This gorgeous textured Tunisian crochet stitch pattern is just one of the beauties from The New Tunisian Crochet by Dora Ohrenstein. I immediately fell in love with it while flipping through the book and know you will too! A huge thank you to Interweave Press for allowing me to share this pattern with the P2P community!
