Tunisian Crochet Quick Start Collection

Designed with the Tunisian crochet beginner in mind.

This collection will guide you through all the basic stitches and techniques. The patterns include detailed instructions along with tips, tricks, and hints to guide you on your tunisian crochet journey.

The 5 patterns in the collection are designed as a quick start for learning tunisian crochet while still making stuff you'll want to wear over and over.

What you will need

Just 1 hook: 6.5mm (K) Tunisian crochet hook with cable at least 12"/25cm long (longer is ok). The first three patterns can be done with a long straight hook but may get uncomfortable. The kite and crescent shawls will require a hook with cable.
DK weight yarn: All 5 patterns are designed to be flexible and as such, gauge is not critical. The weight and fiber content used on the samples are provided as a guide but the designs will work any fiber content and anything from light to heavy DK. Other weight yarn can be used but hook size and yardage will need to be adjusted.
Removable stitch markers: 1 is required for some of the patterns, but more can be handy for marking repeats.
