Tunisian crochet instructions
If you've ever been interested in knitting or crocheting, you've probably heard of something called Tunisian crocheting. In this article we will cover part of the history, as well as some ideas for the use of Tunisian crochet instructions.
This type of crochet differs from classic crochet and knitting in many important ways. We are going to deal with some basic instructions for Tunisian crochet work. Tunisian crochet is considered by the majority as a hybrid between knitting and crochet. The different fabrics created by this specific technique look more like they are woven than knitted or crocheted.
Tunisian crocheting is done on a long hook with a stopper at the end and the hook on the other side. This is comparable to a knitting needle in the fact that it is long. The stop keeps the many stitches on the tool.
Tunisian crochet differs from the other two other forms of fabric making in the fact that each row is done in two specific steps. First is the forward passage in which the loops on the hook are processed and then there is the reverse passage, where the loops are processed from the rear of the hook.
When crocheting a sort of Tunisian hook, the work is never turned, which means that the right side of the fabric always remains facing the right side. Another name for this type of crochet is Afghan crochet or the Afghan stitch.
This specific type of hook provides a more tightly woven fabric and is perfect for things such as blankets or sweaters.
The fabric that produces this crocheted material is very warm and works well for the body. Because this kind of crocheted fabric tightens the fabric together. Which of course means that it is more likely to keep the cold elements out due to the fact that there are fewer openings through which wind can flow.
Afghan rugs (blankets) have become valuable because this type of crochet creates an almost airtight type of blanket. Which means it stays warm unless it gets wet, but if you manage to keep it dry, it's a great insulator, whether it's a shirt or a blanket. A vest made with this specific technique
extremely effective to wear under a jacket as protection against the weather.

1. Approximately 77 yards from a thick wool blend
2. A pair of size 50 needles
3. Carpet needle or crochet hook
5. Ribbon (this is optional)
The knitting needles are quite large that you will probably get about 2 stitches per inch, regardless of the type of thread you use.
The end product is approximately 32 inches long and 12 inches wide, but the fabric is stretchy.
1. Start by setting up 15 stitches in the long tail method. If you prefer to use the yarn as a tie for your capalet, leave a tail of about 7 inches.
2. Work in garter st (by knitting each row) to the desired length or until you have almost no yarn left. If you decide to use the yarn as a tie, don't forget to tie the piece.
3. Loosely cast off and cut off if necessary. If you do not want to use the yarn as a tie, weave at both ends.
4. You can choose to attach ribbons to keep the capalet closed instead of the yarn.
