tunisian crochet stitch guide by kim guzman

Want to win this book?  It’ll be easy.  Just post a link in the Comment Section below to your favorite online crochet project crocheted all or in part in Tunisian stitches.  I love this book, Kim Guzman’s latest, and you will too.  It inspired me to return to Tunisian which I had previously found to be slow and cumbersome.  No more!  Now, I’m a convert.

So, get busy and find some Tunisian inspiration online, post a link to it below – being sure to include your zip code for identification purposes.  The contest will be open from today through the month of April.  I’ll post the winning entry – selected at random – and email the winner separately so s/he can email me the snail mail particulars.

One entry per person.  If you have won a Giveaway Contest on my site in the past SIX months, please post, but you will not be eligible to win.  Contest ends at midnight (CDST) on April 30, 2013.  Have fun surfing!

  9. Donna Gaines on April 16, 2013 2:57 am

    I absolutely love this website as it gives so many variations on Tunisian crochet patterns.
    So many that it was impossible to choose one pattern, so I thought I’d include Tunisian help sites within.

  10. OHSue on April 16, 2013 3:24 am

    I would love to try the Wingspan pattern in Tunisian crochet.

  53. Liz Hasler on April 16, 2013 12:37 pm

    Tunisian crochet has been on my to try list for awhile. Since I’ve never done it, I’d better start with something simple like a scarf or dishcloth of which I’ve seen many. In fact Yarn Chick just blogged about it and showed a beautiful combination of white, green , orange and tan. Loved it.

    I love doing this afghan http://ravel.me/CountryClaire/trngz but have given away the 2 I made. I leave off the roses and leaves as I think the edging on the panels and the tunisian panels make a beautiful afghan with the colors I use … the tunisian panels are done in an aran color, with a forest green – country/dusty rose – forest green edging for each panel. My current problem is locating the rose yarn so I can start another LOL
