Introduction to Tunisian Crochet



Description: Tunisian Crochet can be described as a cross between crochet and knitting.  It uses an elongated crochet hook with a stopper at the end.  Students will learn how to get started, the forward & reverse concept, and a standard bind off.  This class will focus on completing one spa cloth.  At the end of the class series, students will be familiar with reading Tunisian Crochet patterns and gain proficiency in basic stitches.
