10 Essential YouTube Tunisian Crochet Videos

Tunisian crocheting is different than your usual crocheting because it involves a long hook, called a Tunisian or afghan hook. The Tunisian stitch is also specifically designed with the long hook in mind. The longer hook means that you can create larger items without having to piece segments together.

Learning Tunisian crochet can sound daunting but it doesn't have to be when you have the right resources. We think videos are great for learning new crochet techniques. That's why we have 10 Essential YouTube Tunisian Crochet Videos to help you out. From the basics of what you need and what it entails to the different stitches you can make with this hook, you will be well on your way to crocheting the magical Tunisian technique in no time after watching these.

My best advice is to take your time, go up 1-2 sizes on your crochet hook, and don't be scared of the curling. A little steam from an iron with smooth things over."
