101 Easy Tunisian Stitches: Crochet Reviews
I love Carolyn Christmas' designs and Tunisian Crochet, so I had high expectations for this little tome. Unfortunately, I was somewhat disappointed. Instead of a nice juicy explanation of Tunisian, you get like a two paragraph overview, then it launches straight into the stitch explanations on the same page.
I bought this book when I was first learning how to do the tunisian crochet method. Being a long time crocheter and part time knitter, I love the quick way crochet makes up, but like the more pliable and stretchy knit for certain projects. However knitting takes me forever and I like to having something done fast. Tunisian or afghan crochet is just what I needed. This book is one that gives so many different adaptable patterns that I have tried just about everyone. It gives a really good explanation of how to do the simple stitch which is really the only one needed for most patterns. I found a website that also gives a demonstration of working the stitches that is helpful also. -[...] - It is just different than either knit or crochet and the comfort level with working the yarn has to be mastered on your own. I think that how you work the yarn on and off the needle depends on whether you are basically a knitter or basically a crocheter. Either way this is a must have for those who want to try tunisian, those who are already experienced, and for those who like to try something completely different and a little challenging at first.
This book is an excellent resource for Tunisian stitches. It contains far more pattern stitches than general crochet dictionaries do. The color photographs clearly show what the finished stitches should look like; instructional photographs in the front of the book are less clear (yarn is too dark, photos are too small). I had to eliminate the extra chain at the beginning of some two-color patterns because it made the beginning too loopy. There is also no information about shaping--Tunisian crochet is too pretty to be limited to afghans and scarves!
This is a lovely book was perfect for me! I knew only 3 Tunisian stitches and loved them and wanted to learn more. This book was beautifully designed to help me move on.
I had to replace my original book due to flooded basement. This book is a necessity for your crochet library especially if you tunisian crochet. Great color pictures of each stitch.
This book made it easier to understand the tunisian stitches which I love to do. It's amazing to see ur work as u do it because I never turn your work also to end up with different stitches on each side, and tight enough to make a purse without lining it. So cool.
It is always great to find a book that will enable you to look at different stitches without having to look through multiple books or search on the web.
I loved the stitch variety, but Tunisian crochet is simply too warm for where I live. She does n excellent job of explaining entrelac, so even I could figure it out.
