my scarred hands
too often refuse
Saturday, May 18, 2013
I've been playing with my flexible crochet hook that makes it easier to do Tunisian crochet as I had difficulty with that long afghan (Tunisian) hook being unwieldy and cold for my hand. This flexible hook is great! So, in this latest experiment I'm using the Tunisian bamboo stitch. I've crocheted it quite tight except for the one row indicated to see which I like better. I'm sure I'll be tearing it apart as I just discovered that if I crochet an odd number for the foundation chain the stitch will be offset which is the look I was going for and couldn't figure out why my stitches looked so uniform. Always learning :).
Previous sample has been torn apart and redone as a staggered bamboo stitch. The tighter the stitch, the more curl with Tunisian, so I'm still trying to find a good tension.
[UPDATE: all torn out again and I've added a new stitch to alternating rows to eliminate the curl, but have been inspired to try some Romanian Point Lace creations thanks to Monika, so this will wait - lol]
