One of the things I like most about tunisian crochet is that I can make it look like knitting and, even though it is double knit in its thickness and warmth, I find that it is somewhat more versatile than knitting using knitting needles and, for me at least, much quicker to do. I also appreciate that someone is finally showing its versatility online. Thanks, Craftsy!

I really enjoy Tunisian crochet too. I wish there were more patterns and books for patterns using the tunisian crochet hook. Happy Easter !!

Tammy, (I cannot seem to get my chromebook to reply to your reply) There are some pattern stitches and a couple of patterns in the Readers Digest Big Book of Needlework and also in the Bantam book in softcover called Needle Draft. You might have better luck looking for patterns in Afghan Stitch as that is the term people used to use for Tunisian Crochet. I would look into my pattern collection and maybe find you more if my studio shed lock wasn't messed up at the moment and most of my pattern books were not inthere. i have access to my late mom's patterns, but she was not at all into tunisian crochet. (I am now living in her place with most of my stuff still in boxes in the garage or out in my sheds) Hope this helps. Ellen

Before I forget ( I do have "senior moments" at my age - 73.5yrs) I really think your projects are "neat". It took me a while to get what a spa was though. I also use Sugar and Cream cotton yarn a lot. I like to buy it by the cone and use it for string bags that I take shopping (they collapse inside one another easily) and dishcloths for my craft table at local fairs etc. I don't use patterns for those and often use them to try out new stitches. I used tunisian stitch along with some granny squares sto make one of my afghans last year. I'll post a picture when I get them done. Right now I'm charging my camera battery and figuring out how I can upload to my chromebook since the cameral has its own software and chrome operating system won't accept third party software. I may have to email myself the pics in jpeg or tiff form and then access them on my chromebook. My desktop is still using Windows, so I can do it that way.

Good Morning Ellen, Thank you so much for all the information that you shared with me. I am part of our church where we make several things for our annual bazaar. My girlfriend makes the dishrags out of the Sugar and Cream. I make the dishrags for my children's homes. They love them. I knit mine mostly. Sometimes I will crochet them. My passion for crafts is for all of them. I am glad to see that you still stay busy making things. Busy Hands Makes Happy Hands and Hearts. :)
