Step by Step

Tunisian crochet starts with a traditional single chain. Despite the coincidence of crochet, Tunisian is crocheted back and forth. Your hook is longer than the crochet hook so don't turn the piece as you work and keep the right side facing you.

Afghan Crochet Hook

Tunisian crochet hooks are usually 20 to 35 centimeters. The needle has a ball at the end to keep the stitches from falling out. The stitches are worked on the needle, so the needle is bigger. The threads are easier to make with the larger needle, due to the texture of the threads a thicker and longer needle is needed.
Tunisian crochet is worked on top of the needle, as you make the loops on the needle, pass the needle back and forth giving the effect on the wool threads as you can find in the video we share.

Starting Tunisian Crochet for Beginners

Start like traditional crochet, with a little chain and work on the crochet hook. Then go on giving the necessary lacquers according to the size of the work you are doing. 

I recommend starting with a baby blanket. Because you will have an extra motivation to finish your work and leave it beautiful for your baby, or for a friend's baby. After the loop you need to work pulling a stitch, another loop and pull another stitch and finish the row. Do not turn the work, it is done on one side only.
