Tunisian crochet - 05/05/21 - 18:00 to 20:00 (UK time)


Wednesday 5th May 2021 at 18:00-20:00 GMT (UK time)

Tunisian crochet also known as Afghan crochet is a type of crochet that uses an elongated hook that holds multiple loops. The result is a fabric that is beautifully textured using a technique that combines the best of knitting and crochet.

During  this class we will work on a small swatch and will learn how to crochet the simple stitch, knit stitch, purl stitch, seed stitch and also try to cross stitch onto Tunisian crochet fabric.

In your class material you will be given the pattern for the charming wall hanging so you can practice the techniques you have learned straight away.

I will be keeping the class size small as I want everyone to get plenty of help if you need it. Just grab a cup of tea or gin, sit in a comfy chair and enjoy

Materials required:

  • Device with internet connection
  • 2 colours of worsted or Aran yarn.
  • 5.00 or 5.50mm Tunisian crochet hook, go for hook 0.5 or 1 size bigger than yarn recommends - more advice is given on the hook in class confirmation notes, which you will receive when you book the class.
  • You will need to either print, the pattern or have it accessible on a device for the class (I'll be emailing the pattern a day before the class).

This class is suitable for participants who are comfortable with holding the yarn. Please note that this is not a beginner crochet class.

The Zoom links to the class and pattern will be sent the day before, please make sure you enter the correct email address when booking.
