TUNISIAN CROCHET WORKSHOPS COMING THIS SUMMER

There has been a massive upsurge in interest in Tunisian Crochet this year.  So in response to requests to teach it I am currently setting up workshops in June and July to pass on this skill. 

Tunisian crochet is sometimes called Afghan Crochet or Tricot.¬† It is easy to learn, and you don’t need any prior knowledge of crochet to start.¬†

I will post details as soon as each workshop is finalised.  Please watch this space for information!

Here are some examples of how to turn a small piece of work into a pretty bracelet.  

 


ALYTH CREATES 24-26 MAY – FUN WITH FREESTYLE CROCHET

ALYTH CREATES

 

Crochet is a wonderful pliable way to work with yarn.
I will be in Alyth Town Hall over the weekend demonstrating some tips for getting started.
Here is a wee example.¬† I wasn’t terribly impressed with this motif and initially laid it aside.¬† I then decided to add some surface crochet and changed the look entirely!
