|Here are some details about my project:|
|Yarn Weight||DK (8 ply)|
What materials did you use? Natural Bamboo which I will dye after I am finished crocheting (yeah I am a bit backwards that way but it's fun!). I am a tight crochet so I did use a bigger hook and I didn't do the center block since I knew from about the 6th row I wanted this to be a scarf instead.
What are you most proud of? Everything! This is my first Tunisian project and it is very addicting! Even got a set of Denise hooks from Stitch Diva's website which I LOVE!!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Biggest thing I have learned is that the type of hook really does matter. Before getting my Denise hooks in I was using Susan Bates hook. I bought the Denise hooks as a present for myself since I am having heart surgery this week and wanted to take my mind off of the stress of it. I was shocked the how differently I crochet with the Denise hooks. The hook just slides between the yarn. There is no catching, no splitting any plies. I crochet faster and smoother than ever. Best investment I have ever made. I can't ever see using another hook ever regardless if it's regular crochet or Tunisian. Seriously they are that good! Thank you Jennifer for using them in your class!
