Tunisian Crochet

I ordered wool and now I’m waiting and checking every day for it’s arrival. I don’t want to start a new project but I’m waiting … so of course I did. But not a knitting project because that would really throw my project schedule off and we can’t have that.

I’m working the Escalera Wrap (ravelry link) by Aklori Designs (ravelry link) or check her out on instagram @akloridesigns.

It’s Tunisian Crochet which is amazing because it seems to me to be a hybrid between knitting and crochet.

Doesn’t this look somewhat familiar? Stitches on a needle or ahem, a hook?

I dove into my odd ball box and pulled out all the fingering weight bits of yarn. I found I could divide some of it into coloured and darker shades. I don’t think this is enough to finish but it’s enough to get started.

This wrap is a parallelogram which is intriguing and using a hook has been challenging. I found I had to loosen up quite a lot to work comfortably. That’s a good thing. I started with the larger balls just to get myself situated and familiar with the instructions. I can’t wait until the colour changes start. This is going to take a while. But I have a while since I’m still waiting …

Have you tried tunisian crochet? I am really enjoying this.

Cheers, Deb
