Customer Review

I am very new to the art of Tunisian crochet and had no idea there were so many different stitches. This lovely book contains 150 from the more well known stitches to some very exciting and unusual ones. It will definitely appeal to those more experienced in Tunisian crochet but will inspire newbies, like me, to continue learning and trying them out.

I like the layout of the book, especially the photos of all the stitched swatches at the beginning so you can easily find what you need. Each stitch has its own entry with written instructions and chart, plus a real life sized photo of how the stitch should look. There is a good basic skills section at the back which has a clear, large font list of the symbols and abbreviations used in the patterns so it is very easy to use.
