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.
How to Enter
This giveaway is only open until midnight EST tonight. The winner will be announced tomorrow on Twitter and Google Plus as well as in a roundup post of winners on Sunday. Due to shipping costs, this particular giveaway is limited to US entries only.
