TAPESTRY CROCHET

One of my new year resolutions  was to learn Tapestry Crochet,  and I believe now is the time to start practicing this beautiful fiber art.

Carol Ventura’s website has many incredible creations, and her Ravelry page is full of tips and inspiration. I am planning on immersing myself in this form of crochet in the coming weeks and after that I want to have another Road Trip to put all this learning to good use.

These 2 bags are so over the top beautiful I need to learn YESTERDAY πŸ™‚

It is a form of crochet that usually has two or more threads or yarns going at the same timeTapestry Crochet 

one yarn is carried while the other is worked over it.

Tapestry Crochet is practiced all over the world, and it seems to me that this is the dominant form of crochet, especially when it comes to third world countries.

 Tapestry crochet is versatile and that is what makes it special in my eyes.

The fabric created with this form of crochet is either rigid and stiff or soft and flexible, it just depends on the tension you use while crocheting and the amount of threads used.

So, this is all for today, Have A Great and Creative Day and I Hope You Stay Inspired…..

thanks to Google for the images…

  10. Gaaah, you’re making me want to learn it too! I think it’s just natural progression; any crocheter who’s eager to learn more will eventually want to master tunisian crochet as well. I hope you document your WIPs, I look forward to those ^.^
