Welcome to an introduction to Tunisian crochet with artist Toni Lipsey. This workshop dives into a unique technique to crochet a beautiful two-tone shawl complete with fringe and a lace-like seam. We’re pairing a custom Tunisian crochet hook with Toni’s expert guidance to craft beautiful, dense fabrics. We’ve worked hard to source a soft and cozy wool to bring both quality and comfort to this project. Tunisian crochet is a hybrid of knitting and standard crochet, the technique utilizes a long crochet hook joined with a lengthy tube or cable to hold one’s work in progress (in a similar fashion to knitting with circular needles). The result is a unique stitch unlike those of a typical crochet chain or knitted stitches. Use variations in yarn width, color and density for a multitude of results.
If you are a fiber lover, this is the perfect workshop for you. You’ll love how quickly Tunisian crochet stitches up projects and what a great tool a Tunisian crochet hook is for your stash. If this is your first fiber project, we start from the very beginning to be sure you learn the basics and build upwards to more intermediate techniques such as lace-like seaming and color striping.
