Tunisian crochet looks a lot like crochet but also like knitting, who knows, maybe this technique is the forerunner of both. We have multiple stitches, like with knitting, but all the stitches stand on one needle that looks more like a long crochet hook than like a knitting needle.
When crocheting in a circle we use a dubble crochet ook. With the one side of the hook we pull up the stitches. Then we turn the work to the other side and finish the stitches that are on the needle. With this dubble crochet hook you can also crochet a dubble sided hat and if you use 2 colors – one for pulling up the stitches and another to finish the stitches then you get in one side a plaid pattern and in the other side strips.
My first project with this technique was a dubble sided hat, with a pom-pom in the top. For this project you need 2 tools:
and also 3 colors acryl yarn.
It is really easy technique to learn. The needle also comes with instructions and on youtube you can also follow visual instructions. For example this handy (but long) Tunsich gehaakte muts van byClaire World of colors
I also made some hats for Blythe dolls:
