A Different Type of Crochet

Never content with what I already know, I decided it was time to learn how to do Tunisian Crochet. So, I got out my extra long crochet hook (actually a crochet hook end for my Denise Interchangeable knitting needle set), and sat down with some instructions from PlanetJune. Here’s my first swatch:

Tunisian Crochet Swatch

As luck would have it, I hit the gauge I needed for my first Tunisian crochet project: Tunisian Striped Purse by PlanetJune. I actually bought the pattern last year, when she first released it, but I was too afraid/worried/concerned about learning a new technique to start it. But, June has a CAL (crochet-along) on Ravelry for her accessories patterns (which are all fabulous!), so I figured now was the time! And, of course, I shouldn’t have been worried, since June’s instructions were super easy to follow.

Yarn Choices

I’ll be using two shades of Bernat Satin: Grey¬† Mist Heather and Lavender (which is actually more of a darkish purple). Wish me luck!

And why not share in the comments some new technique you’ve learned. I always want to learn more!

    I knew you could do it and happy to see that you are going to make a purse. I look forward to seeing the end results.

    A guy in my knitting class tried Tunisian crochet since he (and I) had a hard time with regular crochet. He ended up making a large trivet for a teapot and it was really nice. He enjoyed the process much more than regular crochet.
