Fun fact, this blog is named, "In the Round", it was the only name I could come up with at the time which is not surprising because I seem to think in tunisian 😄
Speaking of Tunisian crochet, specifically tunisian in the round, it is quite simple to work around, once you get the hand hang of it. See what I did there? 😉😂
Working Tunisian in the round requires a special set of hooks - a double ended tunisian crochet hook. There are different ways of a finding and using a double ended hook.
One way is by getting a hook with a hook on each end as shown. These can be found on Amazon. Some of these hooks come with different sizes at each end. This is so you can use the larger size for the forward pass and the smaller size for the return pass. You can also get one with the same sizes at each end, if you prefer.
Another way of getting and using a double ended crochet hook, is by the use of cables. If you have an interchangeable hook set, like this one from Denise, you can link 2 hooks together using of one the cables and voila, you have a double ended hook.
The thing with this is that if you want the same size hooks on each end (like I do), it may mean having to purchase another hook set or purchasing the Tunisian hook set.
Bummer, right? No worries, friend I've got you 😉
I teamed up with the lovely people at Denise to help with that. The Tunisian in the Round sample set, is a small kit with 2 hooks of the same size and a 16 inch cord/cable.
This set allows you to explore Tunisian in the round without a huge price tag. If, after you've tried it, you want the whole set, you can spring for it knowing you'll get your money's worth out of it. Sweet, right? ( I know! 😁)
You may be asking, "Are there any tunisian in the round patterns?" Well, my friend, I'm glad you asked and I've you covered there as well.
Starting in September 2021, I will be offering Tunisian in the Round kits! 🎉🎉Yes!🙌😄 The kits will contain the TITR sample set, a skein of yarn and a quick TITR pattern to practice your skills while making something useful. Neat, right?😊 #thankyouverymuch
