We are very excited to offer this class at Sweet Pea Fiber and provide a solid foundation to Tunisian crochet. This fun technique dates back to at least the early 1800s and has undergone a large rise in popularity in recent years.
Tunisian crochet is also known as Afghan crochet, hook knitting, tricot crochet, hakking, railroad knitting, and shepherd's knitting.
