31 Days of Crochet Giveaways isn’t over til it’s over and the month isn’t done yet. Today we’ve a great set of prizes for anyone who is interested in Tunisian Crochet. The items come from Marie of Underground Crafter who hosted a giveaway here earlier this month as well. Thanks Marie!

Everyone Wins!

Before we get into the prize itself, I wanted to share that Marie has generously offered a discount code to her Etsy shop for all of my readers. Just enter CC2011Dec2012Jan to get a 25% discount off of any purchase in Marie’s shop through January 31, 2012.

About the Prize

There are two parts to this prize. The first is Marie’s terrific PDF eBook introducing the reader to Tunisian crochet and the second is a set of bamboo Tunisian crochet hooks. Let’s take a look:

The PDF ebook includes illustrations and photo tutorials to guide you through everything you need to get started, including the slip knot, foundation chain, Tunisian base row and return row, and several stitches (Tunisian simple stitch, knit stitch, purl stitch, moss stitch, basketweave stitch, and fan stitch). The ebook also includes other useful tips like Tunisian pattern reading abbreviations and appropriate hook sizes. The book includes 6 customizable scarf recipes, with instructions on how to choose a size, measure gauge, and calculate the number of chains you’ll need to start the scarf. Anyone who has been thinking about learning Tunisian crochet will benefit from this book.

The winner will also receive a set of 5 bamboo Tunisian (Afghan) crochet hooks with flexible cords and stoppers. The bamboo part of the hooks is approximately 10 inches long and the cable is approximately 23.5 inches. The cable allows you to create a very large Tunisian (Afghan) crochet project without having a long and cumbersome hook.

  1. This is something I’ve always wanted to learn. I just love the look of the Tunesian stitch! :)
    xo,
    wink

  2. My favorite item in her shop has to be the newsboy hat! I love the ridges :)

  3. I want to learn more about Tunisian Crochet, this would be great

  4. Ooo, those would be convenient! I only have a couple of hooks, so it’d be nice to have a whole set of them with cables. I have a couple tunesian projects queued but I can’t remember what they are at the moment.

    I’ve tried Tunisian crochet before, but I’ve love to use it for an entire project — perhaps an afghan? These prizes will definitely let me do so!

    And my favorite item from Marie’s shop was the pretty Long Double Crochet Hat with Flower.

    I have no experience with it and want to learn it. I think Tunisian crochet is beautiful and have been kind of scared to learn it but this would give me an opportunity to learn it.

    I like Marie’s Red Bear & the fact that she has an Intro to tunisian crochet on her Etsy page, too. I also really like her Long Double Crochet Hat with Flower

    I have not tried tunisian crochet yet but I have a couple hooks. I would love to win the book on it to help me learn.

    My favorite items from her shop are the yarn and hooks. You can never have too many supplies!

  10. I just recently took a class and learned how to do the basic stitch. I’d love to win this one!! Thank you for the op!!

  12. oooo, I want to learn Tunisian crochet, and this looks like the best time/way to do it!

  13. Jenn Likes Yarn Reply

    I’ve done some Tunisian crochet work in the past and am actually working on an entrelac Tunisian blanket as we speak. I’d love to do more, though, and these supplies would be great :)

  14. Christine Doyle Reply

    Favourite etsy product – the newsboy tam hat! Very cute!

  15. Wow! Great giveaway. I love to learn new techniques. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  16. My only experience with Tunisian crochet was a swatch I did after watching a YouTube tutorial. But I didn’t have much free time then and did not go beyond the swatch.

  17. Lesley Lubenow Cull Reply

    Neat giveaway. I would like to learn this technique too.

  18. Crochet Pattern – Long Double Crochet Hat with Flower is my favorite. I will make one for mom.

  19. Enj Pruden-Roberts Reply

    I like the fingerless gloves. I have a pattern that calls for a Tunisian crochet hook that I have been dying to use. I dont have the hook and I have never done Tunisian crochet. So this will be a wonderful price to win!

  20. ohthatgirl.com Reply

    I’ve never done any Tunsian crochet but I really would love to learn it!

  21. I’ve only made a couple of Tunisian projects – one was a shawl I made just using the simple stitch. The other was an afghan designed by Kim Guzman. Both turned out wonderfully!

  22. Wow I would love to learn Tunisian Crochet. I have one book but haven’t tried to yet as I needed to buy needles etc. I think it looks so beautiful!

  23. My favorite at the under ground crafter store would have to be the bobble diamonds scarf! I would love to make one in red!

  24. One of my goals for 2012 is to learn tunisian crochet. This book looks helpful.

  25. My favorite item is the Beginner’s Guide to Tunisian Crochet gift set. (Same as the giveaway) I also like the Bobble Diamonds and Posts scarf.

  26. carolynIrene Reply

    this is a form of crochet that I want to learn and use; would love to win

  27. I have always wanted to try Tunisian crochet but have never have.
    I love this giveaway and if I had the hooks, I know I would try it and like it!!!!!! I love the look!!!

  28. Andrea Giattini Reply

    I’ve done a few projects in Tunisian. But I’d really like to do something with Tunisian Entrelac.

  29. Traci Sanford Reply

    I love it but I have little experience with it. So far all I’ve done is a small baby blanket in a basic Tunisian crochet stitch.

  30. My experience is trying to get my Mom to learn it. I’ve never tried it but I figured it would give her something different to do.

  31. I love the Bobble Diamonds and Posts Scarf! The bobbles are fun and the pattern isn’t too busy, beautiful.

  32. Carol Anderson Reply

    My favorite on Etsy would have to be the tunisian crochet hooks, that’s what I really need!
