Tunisian Crochet Central
I guess it's pretty obvious that Tunisian Crochet is my favorite type of needlework, so I've gathered my favorite TC Sites & products here. They aren't necessarily the big names in the industry, but they have made a big impression on me, for what that's worth.
Excellent Tutorial Sites
Crochet Cabana- A very popular site, that even teaches Teachers how to teach Crochet! She also has some basics on Tunisian Crochet.
Knittedthreads.com- Janet Reihfeldt's site has many tutorials on crochet and knitting, and my favorite-Tunisian Crochet.
Tunisian Crochet Hooks
Serendipity Crochet- Dave shows you how to make TC hooks yourself.
Mo-Ez Hooks are extra large sizes, made from wood & are very popular.
Twin Birch Products- I really love their Birch Wood hooks; the finish is really smooth. They also carry MY Cable Stitch Hooks & my Entrelac Hook.
Turn-of-the-Century- gorgeous, hand turned hooks.
ArtEdje Hooks, are now sold through StitchDiva.com
BrainsBarn- Pricey, but beautiful hand turned wood hooks.
carries Susan Bates products
Frugal Knitting Haus- also carries Susan Bates products<
Carries KA Bamboo flexible hooks. I was pleased with their customer service.
There are plenty of sites that serve as link warehouses, so ChezCrochet doesn’t need to duplicate those efforts. These are the links I use the most.
Tutorials & Patterns
Kim Guzman has published designs in major magazines and through Annie's Attic. You can purchase several patterns directly from her, plus she has posted many free patterns at her site. She also has a huge list of TC pattern links, and many tutorials. Kim and I are building one of the largest databases on Tunisian Crochet at our Yahoo Group.
Designs by J.A.M.I.- Jude and Rob have excellent tutorials on Tunisian Crochet, as well as graphed patterns for TC projects. Argh! apparently their url is being directed to a porn site. I'll check on this.
NexStitch.com- Amie is new to the TC online family, but has made a big splash with her online videos of Tunisian Crochet stitches.
Fibre Fantastics- If you love to work with color in your needlework, you must see Julia's designs! She offers classes on TC if you are in the Toronto area.
Mary Middleton has her own line of hooks and patterns she calls Crochenit (cro-hook.)
DarlaJDesigns- owned by Darla Fanton the woman who is credited with reviving Tunisian Crochet through it's sister Cro-Hook or Crochet on the Double.
Margaret Hubert - has project patterns for sale using a TC Entrelac method. You’ll need to write to her to purchase the pattern.
Mary's Crazy Squares- a unique version of Entrelac (on a free site, so it exceeds its bandwidth allotment quite a bit)
