Hello fellow bloggers, great to have you here.
These are the Tunisian crochet samples I made for my crochet class this week. It's a totally different type of crochet, a cross between knitting and crochet. A kind of make a row of stitches and then cast off, and repeat. It eats wool like you wouldn't believe but produces a nice thick fabric. Great for making handbags and jackets. Hope these photos show the patterns the stitches make.
Tunisian simple stitch (TSS)
Tunisian knit stitch (TKS)
Tunisian purl stitch (TKS)
And finally a mixture of purl and simple stitch
I've kind of finished my wave blanket, with a thin round of dc in black to bring out the colours. I do love how one side is darker than the other. I'm undecided on leaving it like this or trying to make a thicker lacy edging. May be down to time in the end.
At the Tuesday crochet&chat / knit&bitch group I was given a vintage pattern and have decided to give it a go. Don't you just love those hairstyles, or are they wigs.
I made a start last night and have got this far, first five rows.
But it Sunday and that means stitching, must go and get a needle and some floss.
