What is Tunisian crochet?
According to Wikipedia, Tunisian crochet is a subspecies / special case of crochet technique.
Crocheting is a much younger technique than knitting. There are no known crocheted pieces that can be traced back to before 1800. When exactly Tunisian crocheting was developed is not known.
Tunisian crocheting produces a weaving effect in the stitch pattern that differs from both the knitting pattern and the crochet pattern. This is exactly what makes this topic so interesting. There is a wealth of possibilities.
The Tunisian Crochet course is designed to provide a basic knowledge of this technique.
Each crochet piece is based on the crochet chain.
This results in a workpiece with a different weaving effect in the first row (loop row) and in the back row (unmeshed row).
Yes, a completely new image is created after the first row has been interpreted as the second row.
