The Art of Tunisian Crochet by Pauline Turner
Until the twenty-first century, Tunisian crochet was a little-used style of crochet that was considered relatively simple and unadventurous. Fortunately, nowadays, that has all changed. The Art of Tunisian Crochet offers a comprehensive exploration of what is an often underestimated technique that combines both knitting and crochet principles. The book takes the reader from the technique’s relatively young history, dispelling common misassumptions, to the exciting possibilities available to the crafter today. This beautifully illustrated book includes the origin of Tunisian crochet; advantages and disadvantages of materials and equipment; the limitless variations of the basic Tunisian simple stitch; achieving the unexpected ethereal look of Tunisian lace; exploring a creative variety of texture and colour, and finally, incorporating Tunisian crochet with other crafts.
