If this is your first time hearing about Tunisian crochet, don’t worry – you aren’t alone! Tunisian is a form of crochet that replicates the way knitted garments look – but with a hook.
This makes it familiar and easy, while also opening up a whole new world of possibilities. Tunisian keeps all the stitch loops active on an extended hook, much like knitting, but you are still using the good old-fashioned crochet hook to make the stitches.
This method allows for so many cool stitches, interwoven and interlocking colorwork designs, and so much more. It’s the perfect cross-over of knitting and crochet that allows for an infinite amount of patterns and designs.
Here are 15 patterns from Ravelry that are all Tunisian – from beginning to advance. Which one will you start with first?
