Tunisian crochet is sort of a hybrid between knitting and crochet. It makes a beautiful, textured, thick fabric that you can’t achieve with any other stitch. This simple stitch is great for projects like blankets, bags and pot holders because it creates a nice dense fabric that offers plenty of warmth. Depending on the yarn and hook you use, it can be fairly sturdy or have a lovely drape. Because this stitch is quite straightforward, it also gives you a great opportunity to experiment with color and texture.
