i finally got it!

i have tried tunisian crochet, or the afghan stitch, several times and for some reason i have never been able to get it right. i decided to give it another shot, and i figured out what i was doing wrong! on the return pass, i was starting by coming through two loops, which is what you do across – but first, you just bring a loop through one loop. i was missing that step, so my pieces were always turning out diagonal.

once i got it, i realized just how much i love the look of this stitch! i had a random skein of green yarn that i haven’t had anything to make, so i decided to use it for a tunisian scarf. and i decided to add some fringe, even though i’m not usually a fan. i like it!

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
