If you’re new to the world of Tunisian crochet, don’t worry! This tutorial will guide you step by step, from the materials needed to creating your first piece. Let’s start!
Tunisian crochet hook (with long handle)
Wool of your choice (preferably a light color to make the stitches easier to see)
Tapestry needle (optional, to hide loose ends)
Step 1: Assembling the Starting Chain
Hold the Tunisian crochet hook in your dominant hand.
With the wool, make a slip knot.
Slide the slip knot over the needle handle.
Now, wrap the yarn around the cable and pull it through the slipknot to create your first stitch.
Step 2: Working on your initial career
To start the first round, insert the needle into the second stitch from the hook (not counting the stitch on the needle).
Wrap the yarn over the Tunisian needle and pull it through the stitch. You will have two loops on your hook.
Continue this process at each stitch along the row, always wrapping the yarn around and pulling it through the stitch.
At the end of the row, you will have a series of loops on your needle.
Step 3: Returning with the Turn Point
Now, to go back, wrap the yarn around the needle as you would in traditional crochet.
Pull the yarn through the first loop on the needle.
Continue this process until there is only one loop left on the needle.
Step 4: Continuing Careers
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 to form the next rows.
Always insert the needle into the second stitch of the previous row and work until the end.
Remember that each row will have two stages: the out stage (picking up the stitches) and the back stage (working the stitches back onto the needle).
Step 5: Finishing the Work
When you reach the desired length for your piece, it’s time to finish.
Work the last row, but this time don’t go back.
Cut the wool, leaving a generous amount of excess.
Pull the scrap through the last stitch on the needle to secure.
Use the tapestry needle to hide the loose ends within the stitches of the piece.
