The book includes an introduction to the types of hooks that are available for Tunisian crochet, as well as ways to modify standard or double-ended crochet hooks for Tunisian crochet.
An eight-page section with step-by-step photos demonstrates the basic stitches including Tunisian simple, knit, purl, reverse, and extended stitches. This section is helpful even to a more experienced Tunisian crocheter because Tunisian crochet stitch names are not always standardized, and the pictures allow you to identify stitches you may already know, which may have been called a different name in prior publications.
After introducing you to the stitches, Kim shares techniques for increasing, decreasing, changing colors, seaming and other finishing. The remainder of the book is devoted to the patterns, with a brief section at the end that includes information on reading patterns and the yarns used in the book.
Kim writes in a conversational tone and reading this book is like having a great teacher looking over your shoulder. Some of my favorite features are that the book lays flat so you can read along while crocheting; projects list yarn by type rather than by brand for easy substitution (a list of yarns used for each project is provided at the end); and many pictures and illustrations demonstrate various techniques throughout the book.Read more ›
I found the drawings a bit confusing as the step they describe and the process don't jive in my mind. If I were to show what they intended, I would show it differently. Deciphering how someone else sees steps would require more drawings or a different one. I was able to figure it out and it is an enjoyable new technique.
