If you're a knitter and thinking about an easy way to try your hand at crochet, tunisian crochet may be exactly what you're looking to try.
Tunisian crochet is a slight variation of traditional crochet, almost a mix of crochet and knitting. It involves a special crochet hook and it uses multiple stitches on the hook at once. The result is a beautiful woven looking design that's generally thick and luxurious to the touch.
