With step-by-step instructions and informative photographs, Kim Guzman's new book leads you through the creation of eight Tunisian stitches and ten swatches of stitch patterns. These stitches are put to use in ten projects, including wraps and afghans and a market bag and cloche. Included with the book is an interactive DVD with Guzman demonstrating basic Tunisian stitches as well as the new Tunisian lace stitches.-Interweave Crochet

More About the Author

"There isn't often a day when you won't find me without a crochet hook or my knitting needles in my hands! Turning these loves into a full-time career that fulfills my desire for creativity is like a dream come true."

Kim Guzman is an award-winning teacher and crochet pattern designer. She writes a variety of patterns including garments, home decor, accessories and gift items.

Kim has authored 12 books, most of them in her favorite form of crochet--Tunisian crochet. Tunisian crochet offers Kim more flexibility in her designing due to its unique look, which can mimic knitting or weaving, depending on the stitches used while still maintaining crochet's ease. Being able to combine these looks together in one project brings all needlework together and makes Tunisian crochet a favorite among many.

You may often hear that Tunisian crochet is the "step-child" of knitting and crochet. "Not so," says Kim, "it's more like the best of both worlds!"

Her latest books, The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Tunisian Crochet and Tunisian Cables to Crochet, offer something for everyone for beginner to advanced.

Kim's portfolio of her work can be found at www.kimguzman.com. Or, you can follow her on her blog where she discusses the day-to-day activities of designing as well as her newly-found pastime of canning and preserving food.

I am just learning Tunisian Crochet and I found this book to be a valuable resource. The description of stitches and general instructions in the book are very clear. The photo step-by-step descriptions are very clear. I can't wait to make the swirls baby afghan for my new granddaughter. I love all of the patterns and can see that I am going to be wearing a lot of shawls in the near future.

I'm also thinking of making scarfs from some of the stitch patterns. An easy way to learn the stitches and make Christmas presents.

I'm in love with the DVD. It makes everything so much clearer. Reading is great, but moving pictures of any technique are wonderful. I found the video to be very professional and filmed in a manner that allows the viewer to get a clear picture of each of the stitches and stitch patterns. The videos are precise and slow enough for the viewer to see exactly how the stitch is made.

As an aside, I'm in love with the photography in this book. I find it to be tasteful, opulent and gorgeous. It makes the book a pleasure to view and read.

This is a small project book with 10 items to crochet. The book is clear and easy to follow. The DVD has hesitation glitches and also some focus issues that are distracting. The envelope that contains the DVD is near the middle of the book, making browing through the book difficult...it would have been nice if there would have been a DVD pocket on the front or read page. All the items are made of light worsted or worsted weight yarn...many items would have been prettier made in a lighter weight yarn, giving a more lacy effect. I highly recommend a tunisian crochet hook with a flexible cord in place of the more old fashioned straight, solid hook.

If you already know how to do Tunisian Simple Stitch and want to move your skills on and up then this is for you. And if you don't already know how to do Tunisian SS - why, this is also for you: you will not fail to discover how! This lovely collection of patterns together with the clearest of DVD instructions is a must for the crochet library.

Kim Guzman's book is fabulous. Even as a fairly new crocheter I can follow this book and love the instructional photos. The DVD is so great and I know I will watch it a million times.
I highly advise you all to buy this book so that you can have it on hand whenever you are going to work a project.
Beautiful patterns.

I will highly recommend this book. There is nothing to waste. The first half of the book is a course in Tunisian crochet and the other half is about the projects. The DVD is a wonderful tool which will help the people that need a visual tool. All projects are beautiful and fashionable. Also, I will like to advise new buyers to be aware that all projects are intermediate level, meaning that this book is not for crochet beginners. I would also like to add that Kim Guzman, the author has created stunning pieces to please all crowds.

This book has good information on the different kinds of stitches and the CD that comes with it is really good taking you step by step through the stitches and then through the patterns in the book. I am not any expert on crochet in general but I really enjoy tunisian crochet after taking one class on the simple stitches and being able to make a small purse quickly and this book will enable me to make more difficult projects.

This book and DVD are wonderful resources for getting started in Tunisian crochet. Especially since there are not a lot of materials out there yet this lost form of needlework. I loved having the DVD with it as your own personal tutorial.
