A Note on Tunisian Crochet for garment creation.
If you’ve happened upon this post and this crochet technique is new to you, here’s a short explanation that might encourage you to give it a go!
Tunisian crochet differs from traditional crochet by using an elongated hook and incorporating a two-step process (forward pass plus return pass). This unique style of crochet creates a fabric that resembles a knit texture, making it ideal for producing garments with a drape and thickness reminiscent of knitwear. The technique’s unique combination of stitches allows for intricate designs and added stretch, making Tunisian crochet an excellent choice for crafting cozy and stylish crochet garments.
