Tunisian Crochet Resources

What’s a little bit like crochet, a little bit like knitting, and a lot of fun? Tunisian crochet, of course! You use a special crochet hook, sometimes even a double-ended one, and pull loops onto it like you might with knitting. The fabric is totally unique, and people who enjoy either or both crafts also often love all of the possibilities that open up with this niche craft. We wanted to share our roundup of Tunisian crochet resources with you today.

What Is Tunisian Crochet?

In this post, we tell you all about Tunisian crochet and why it’s the ultimate bicrafty craft. You learn to take the skills you already have from either or both crafts (crochet and knitting) and use them in a new way. This allows you to create new fabrics compared to the other crafts. For example, you could use a crochet color chart with Tunisian crochet and get a similar, but much more elongated, design. If you like the look of knitting but the technique of looping with your hook, you might really enjoy this technique.

Tools For Tunisian

What do you need for Tunisian crochet? To start learning the basics, you don’t need anything different than your usual crochet hooks. However, you’ll want to get a set of Tunisian crochet hooks for most projects. These are the same as regular crochet hooks in terms of size. For example, your go-to might be a size G Tunisian crochet hook. However, the Tunisian crochet hook shaft is longer than usual, allowing you to hold your loops on the hook as needed. In some instances, you might also want a double-ended Tunisian crochet hook. We’ll be creating a brand new post about this for you soon.
