Suitable for beginners, you will learn how to cast on and work the Tunisian Simple Stitch. How to work with 2 colours (this produces lovely effects with very little effort!), and how to cast off. If time allows, we will also look at some other stitches.

I will bring some samples of Tunisian Crochet pieces with me to give you an idea of what you can do with this technique.

We will be making a lavender bag. Tunisian crochet hook, yarn and lavender bag inserts included.


Sharon Carter is a freelance technical editor, yarn dyer, designer and experienced tutor.  Since winning the Knit Now ‘New Designer’ category for ‘Knitter of the Year, 2017’, she has had several patterns published in both Knit Now and Crochet Now magazines.

Sharon particularly enjoys working with the amazing textures Tunisian crochet can produce and is keen to pass on her love of this technique.
