Unveiling the Anatomy of the Stitch: Tunisian Crochet with Lisa Daehlin
The technique of Tunisian crochet is a hybrid of crochet and knitting, resulting in a fabric with a woven quality. Learn how to make the basic Tunisian crochet stitches (simple/knit/purl), and expand those skills to incorporate the use of two colors and to create a variation in lace. No prerequisite skills needed.
Lisa Daehlin is a knitting designer and opera chanteuse. As a continuing education faculty member at the Cooper Union, she has the distinction of being the first teacher of knitting and crochet courses at this historic institution; she also teaches in the Studio Arts Workshop at Newark Museum. Daehlin’s designs can be seen on the pages of Interweave Knits, Knit.1, Knit Simple, and Vogue Knitting magazines, as well in Lace Style and Bag Style, published by Interweave Press, and in the forthcoming titles The New Tunisian Crochet and Vogue Knitting Ultimate Hat Book.
Materials needed: crochet hook (size H, I, or J), two small balls of DK or worsted weight-yarn (different colors).
