 This Tunisian Sampler Shawl is too beautiful not to make once in your life!

Skill Level and Prerequisites: Adventurous beginner/Intermediate: This class is intended for those familiar with a variety of Tunisian crochet stitches including the Tunisian simple stitch, reverse stitch, Tunisian knit and purl stitches, the full, honeycomb, and bobble stitches --All stitches taught in the Tunisian Variety Stitch Pack class! Participants will also need to know basic crochet stitches like chaining, single, and double crochet stitches.

Participants will learn how to increase and decrease stitch number in Tunisian crochet, how to combine basic stitches to create a textured fabric, and, thus how to "read" your Tunisian stitches. The goals of this class are meant to demonstrate Tunisian stitch anatomy and how to harness the technical maneuvering of a single hook to build different fabric textures--A strength of this versatile fiber craft! Of course, you will learn some new stitches that weren't taught in the Tunisian Variety Stitch pack as well!

Participants will receive demonstrations and practice opportunities during the class times. Students will have homework between each session and should come with sample pieces prepared to practice each new technique during class (see homework). Finishing the shawl will not be included in the class times (i.e. completing the crocheted border, tassels, and blocking).

Homework:  Participants should come to the first session with their yarn caked and their color order for the stripes planned out ahead of time. Come to class with the following tasks completed:

  1. With yarn color A, chain three
  2. Foundation row: Yarn over, insert needle into the bump of the second chain from the hook and bring up a loop, Yarn over, insert needle into the bump of the third chain from the hook and bring  up a loop. You should have 5 loops on your hook.
  3. Complete a standard return pass.

Please come to the second class with at least six samples of any weight yarn and any size hook working 11 stitches for two rows in Tunisian Simple Stitch (forward and reverse pass, twice). You should have enough working yarn to work three rows (forward pass and reverse pass, three times). You will use these samples to practice certain techniques demonstrated in class. BONUS: These samples can be finished to create a new set of makeup removers!
