Beginner's Guide to Tunisian Crochet: with 10 modern projects for you and your home by Emma Guess
I never heard of Tunisian crochet before. I am a knitter & my husband crochets. Learning that Tunisian crochet is a combination of crochet, knitting & weaving all on one long hook had me intrigued so I figured I'd check it out.
The book does a good job illustrating each stitch with both photos and text. I have found I'm rather partial to the Tunisian Purl Stitch & the Tunisian Full Stitch. I don't care for the look of most of the mixed stitches. Such as a Tunisian Knit Stitch and a Tunisian Purl stitch. Personally, I think it looks awful. It looks like a tangled up talent-less mess. However, if these mixed stitches utilize one color rather than contrasting colors, the look improves.
Out of all of the projects, I have enjoyed the Ombre Basket the most. There is also a nice blanket pattern. I don't care for the color combination in the book, but when choosing colors I prefer, I find the end result is very satisfying.
Mostly this has been a way to "shake things up" from what my husband & I are used to. It was fun, but we find we both prefer good ol' fashioned knitting and crocheting over Tunisian.
