I love this stitch. Made a blanket for my mother in law years and I embroidered on this stitch. Was so beautiful, she loved it

I was glad to be able to view the video on how to Tunisian. (I was pronouncing Tunisian wrong all the while). I thought it was much more complicated that it really is. Now that I have viewed a video on how to complete the stitch I know I will be completing this project. I already placed an order on line for the special hook.

I haven't made this Honestly Easy Tunisian Crochet Afghan yet, but I will. Right now I am making a scarf for my Grandson using both of these Tunisian stitches. This pattern makes a beautiful fabric. Love it!! Thank you for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is a wonderful project for someone who is new to Tunisian crochet or wants to learn. You can make the piece any size you want from full sized afghan to dishcloth. It doesnt matter as the principles remain the same. The embedded video is very good, and if you prefer static instructions, the drawings are MUCH better than photos.

This is one of my favorite crochet blanket patterns! I love the colors here but the style looks great when using any colors.

This is a super bulky afghan and it will definitely keep you warm even in the most brutal temperatures. I have not worked the Tunisian stitch in a while so I may be a little rusty. This pattern is so easy to follow along with though it shouldnt take me long to get back in the swing.

I took a class in Tunisian crochet and this is the perfect pattern to use what I learned. I have the needle, the yarn and there is no reason why I can't start on it. You can never have too many afghans and I do give them away to family if they want them. This is a nice "solid" stitch so I am sure my brother will be "stealing" it. Haha. Thank you for the pattern.

TThis is the ideal pattern for me to try out Tunisian crochet for the first time. I have avoided it for quite a while but just last week I bought some needles for Tunisian crochet and this pattern is going to give me a lovely afghan to ge4t cozy with on the on sofa this coming winter. Wish me luck, lol!his is the ideal pattern for me to try out Tunisian crochet for the first time.

Yes, I am a beginner at Tunisian crochet or I should say I am a pre-beginner as I have worked with this stitch yet even though I keep saying I am going to attempt it. Should I start off with an afghan to begin with or should I attempt a smaller project first?
