We were discussing Tunisian crochet/afghan stitch awhile ago. I was
intrigued by a project I saw on "Knitting and Crochet Today" on PBS some
months ago, but had trouble finding a reasonably priced HUGE Tunisian
crochet needle. Well, I finally got one and am ready to get started. And
in a serendipitous spot of synchronicity (say THAT ten times!), the show
was repeated last week - just the second time I ever tuned in! (Usually
it's a disappointment when that happens, but not this time).
So last weekend I struggled with figuring out the stitch, and gave up.
Today I looked at online tutorials, with the intention to start over
again tonight. And the light just went on --- click! -- Tunisian crochet
is rather like horizontal stitching, rather than the normal "vertical"
approach! The stitches are formed side-to-side rather than up-and-down. AHA!
It should be easier when I start over later today!
