14 Easy Tunisian Crochet Patterns Beginners Can Actually Master
Tunisian crochet is traditionally done using a longer hook than a regular crochet hook, called an Afghan hook. You don’t need to worry if you think that mastering a new hook sounds scary, though. These patterns that we’ve picked out are extra easy. And many of them don’t even require using a different hook than the one that you’ve already got handy.
Learn the Tunisian simple stitch, and you’ve got a fun new stitch in your pocket that you can use over and over again. When you dive in with these patterns that we’ve compiled, learning them is fast and simple.
One of the patterns is even called “Honestly Easy.” We’re being honest, you’re going to surprise yourself with how well you master this stitch.
Crochet pillows, owls, and purses – you’ll want to make them all with this stitch when you realize how fast it is.
