Description

Tunisian Crochet is also called ‘knitting crochet’ as you have to cast on all the stitches of a row, and this type of crochet is distinguished by the long, elongated Afghan hook used. With crocheting, you are often turning your working at the end of the row to continue with the pattern but in Tunisian you are only working on one side with forward and back passes.

Problem solved if you suffer from wobbly edges with double or treble crochet as this style gives the cleanest, most even edges you’ve ever seen, you’ll love it!
