So now that Summer 2015 Blanket Extravaganza is finally over with, I actually have some time to work on something that wasn’t a blanket. I’ve been seeing a lot of stuff on line in regards to tunisian crochet so I decided to teach myself how to do it.

I bought the only afghan hook that was in stock and some brightly coloured yarn and got down to learning it. For the first few rows, I was actually placing the yarn on the hook incorrectly so it ended up being really lose in the beginning but around the 4th row I was finally getting the swing of things.

Tunisian Crochet
The hook was hella awkward to work with at first, I’m not going to lie. The length of it is just very much out of my norm. Even when I knit and use long needles, I am still able to hold the needles rather close to the points so you don’t really notice the length. When the loops were spread across the afghan hook, you had little choice but to hold it towards the end. I’m getting used to it already but there was a learning curve, that’s for sure!

Now just to decide what I can actually make with this newly acquired skill. I thought about a scarf at first but unfortunately the opposite side of the work isn’t so pretty as the front. What do you make with tunisian crochet?
