Tunisian Crochet
Anyone here tunisian crochet? I'd like to give it a go, but need some more info on it. I've checked out the NexStitch videos and it looks like something I could get into. Any suggestions on videos or websites? Thanks in advance!!

Funny you should ask! I am just about to begin some videos on exactly that! I'll post info here once I have them up on my website. I'll be starting with the basics and then showing some variations on the stitches too....another idea with Tunisian is also brewing in my head which I'll share once I have it all worked out. So keep an eye on www.hookedonneedles.com

You know it goes by other names. Such as afghan crochet, croknit and more.

I've done a few things with it, but the curling is something I can't seem to tame, so I feel more comfortable with regular crochet. But it's fun to experiment! There is an Encyclopedia of Tunisian Crochet. I can't remember the website, but you can probably Google and find it. It's a great resource of Tunisian stitches.

curling
If you don't get the free newsletter with Carol Alexander then you should. In one of her recent newsletters was an article concerning curling. Here is a link:
http://www.freepatterns.com/content/...h=11&year=2008

I hope you will give it another try and cure the curls.

I did a dishcloth in the basic Tunisian crochet stitch. It was fun! I did a few rounds of single crochet as a border around the edges and blocked it and that seemed to tame the curl. I used the Nexstitch videos as well.

Cro-Knit/Crochet-on-the-double is different than Tunisian/Afghan Stitch, using a double hook.
But if you can do one you should be able to do the other, it's just easier to lose your place with On-the-double.

Tunisian Short Row Cloth On Ravelry
I too, am looking forward to Mary Grace's Videos on Tunisian Crochet.

I want to crochet that Tunisian Short Row Cloth on Ravelry..it's a free pattern. I can't get past row 1...LOL! But I'm not giving up. I've watched the videos that are out there for tunisian and I think it's really cool...I want to learn it too!
