Book Description

Add Tunisian crochet to your skill set today and start making pieces with the look of knitting but the ease of crochet.

Tunisian crochet, also known as the afghan stitch, is easy and fun to work, and is perfect not only for blankets and shawls but also for place mats and even skirts. The only special tool you need is a Tunisian crochet hook, and you are ready to go. Whether you are a seasoned crocheter or a total newcomer, you'll pick it up easily by following the step-by-step illustrated instructions. Once you've practised the basics, try out your new skills on the five included patterns for an heirloom baby blanket, scarf, skirt, shawl, and four variations of colourful woven-look place mats.

The publication has large, clear diagrams of the ways of working the three basics stitches; Tunisian simple stitch, Tunisian knit stitch and Tunisian purl stitch. It also describes the tools used and explains that the hooks are long because they often have to hold a large number of stitches for the first pass [...] There are instructions on how to decrease, how to change colours and how to finish off the piece. The second part of the publication has five projects; a scarf, a skirt, a shawl, a baby blanket and a set of place mats - all basic patterns that are ideal for a beginner. 

If this is your first venture into Tunisian crochet it is a useful source.
