It’s Kim Guzman’s Learn To Do Tunisian Lace Stitches. What fun! I came to this book with a pretty good background in crochet and with a knowledge of basic tunisian stitches. I also have made a couple of projects in tunisian lace. Last year, I made Tara’s Tunisian Scarf by Ellen Gormley for my mother’s birthday and I also made a few dishcloths a couple weeks ago from a pattern I saw on Knitting Daily.
This week, I made a few more dish cloths for Mom, (she loves them) to go along with her Mother’s Day gift.
This book includes a DVD, which featured Kim, demonstrating all the stitches used to make projects in this book. It has been a blast to learn them along with helpful tips to improve my tunisian stitching. Of course, all of the projects are lovely and I wanted to try every one of the stitch patterns, but with other work and a busy family, I was constrained to two. Here they are:
stitch pattern number 8, the white cloth, and stitch pattern number 10 in pink. Please note that I went down a couple hook sizes. I used a size H tunisian hook because that’s what I had. Really, a larger hook is called for when using worsted yarn and making lace. Still, Mom says they are too pretty to was dishes with, and I have to agree with her. Maybe she can use them as trivets?
