Editorial Reviews

Crochet Addict UK blog - Susan Dougill
"I love the speed and versatility of crochet but sometimes the lack of fabric in crochet means that it doesn’t quite work for garments. Tunisian crochet...is as simple and quick as crochet but gives you the fabric looks that knitting does...I couldn't believe when I received this book and not only did it include all the instructions and teach you how to Tunisian crochet it also includes 16 projects."

It took me no time at all to master tunisian crochet with the help of this wonderful book. The illustrations and the explanations are very clear on technique and include a wide variety of projects. I plan on buying more copies as gifts for my knitting/crocheting friends. If you want to learn how to master the art of tunisian crochet, this is the book for you!

I had been struggling with Tunisian crochet for the last year until I bought this book and found the information, direction and patterns easy to follow and I am almost done my first project. This is a must for beginers in Tunisian crochet, being an avid crocheter for more than 20years, I love learning new stitches and patterns and this gave me a whole new world to explore!

One of the best new projects that I have done for myself in a long time. The results were as nice as I had anticipated. Easy to follow instructions if you are a seasoned crocheter. Would never give it to someome who is not though.
