TUNISIAN/AFGHAN CROCHET

There is a crochet technique that is really pretty and it looks just like a knit cloth…..but it is Not!! it is called Tunisian or Afghan stitch.

You will need a hook that is a little different from the regular crochet hook. If you click on the image below, it will give you a brief history of this type of crochet.

The technique is not hard, that is what they say, I have yet to try it. The Purl Bee has an excellent tutorial here. For a visual tutorial you can click here.

  1. Tunisian is my favorite crochet technique! It is so much fun I have at least two projects in my waiting to be done pile. Online you can try Amazon or yarn.com for hooks. And I believe Knit a picks was carrying the circular Tunisian hooks. Well, they were a few months ago. Locally Hobby Lobby has them.

    Tunisian crochet can produce some amazing fabric and its always fun to try and learn new things. I did teach myself the basics a few years ago but have promptly forgotten them due to not using them since!

  5. Go for it! My mom taught me Tunisian simple stitch, and then later my mom-in-law introduced me to many more possibilities with Tunisian crochet. My favorite resource for different stitches is tuncro.blogspot.com.
    Here’s a short tutorial I wrote for Tunisian crochet:

  8. I’ve tried to buy one of those Tunisian crochet hooks, but can’t find them anywhere locally. I’d love to have a go!

    • Have you tried AC Moore? That’s where I bought mine. They only sold them individually. I bought a set of various hook sizes on Amazon. I’m waiting for them to be delivered. I didn’t see, or maybe wasn’t looking hard enough, any of the circular ones. How about EBay?
      I hope you find some! It does look fun!
