  • Just an opinion, but I’m trying to expand my knowledge of Tunisian crochet, and the written directions, minus any example pictures, continue to confuse! Wish the directions for intermediate patterns included vids, or at least pictures. Just my 2 cents.

  • I like the pattern, but I’m struggling with the connection, going from one round to the other. When I put the crochet hook through the first loop & YO, do I pull the loop through 1 or 2 loops? My seam is looking a little odd. Hope you can help.

    A little confusing, but I am going to work on it. It looks great in the picture, I hope I can figure it out.

    Hi, can I use a double ended tunisian hook instead of a cabled hook? 9mm on both ends.
