Annie’s Crochet Classes – Tunisian Crochet

20 Aug

Hey everyone!! I have some exciting news for those of you who love to crochet or have been watching me crochet and wishing you knew how! I just found out about this awesome site called Annie’s Crafts that teaches you how to crochet and make certain things via video!

For those of you who are just like me and hate reading patterns – this is a great option. I’m a very visiual person and find myself looking up youtube videos rather than attempting a pattern even if it’s free! The videos here offer you so many different things:

You get a Classroom Description, Meet The Instructor, Supplies List, Feedback, and Notes! You can make notes for yourself to look back on anytime You also get a PDF of the class materials and patterns which you can download at any time.  The best thing of all – if you are really confused – you can ask the instructor for help. That’s one on one with the person who knows it all!

I took the Tunisian Crochet Class and it came with THREE different patterns:

annies3

annies4

and they walk you through each step for each one. Just from these three patterns I learned four different stitches!

If you want to see a preview of this class or any of the other classes they have them on YouTube or on their site at Annie’s Crafts.

With this class they suggested you get Denise Interchangable crochet hooks and after taking the class I suggest you do too! I didn’t and just used my regular crochet hook which is fine until you try to do a pattern with over 20 some stitches!

It didn’t take me long and I caught on to the pattern really well. Here is an example of why you would need more than a regular crochet hook. This is 18 stitches and there isn’t much room for it to go any further!

I will say I love how beautifully the pattern turned out to be. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I have a few ideas of what I’d like to  make once I get my interchangeable hooks 🙂

Here is another stitch I tried from the class. I think this was 45 stitches. I was testing out my little crochet hook to see how well it held up and even though it held the 45 stitches – it was not easy!!

This crochet stitch is made to look like knitting and it’s GORGEOUS! I’m definitely happy with the end result of this one!

If you are interested in taking a class online with them you can get 50% off any class you sign up, this is for a limited time only. You can also get 20% off any of the products you purchase.

Enjoy!

    I’ve been thinking about learning how to do Tunisian Crochet for ages (well, months anyway!), but wasn’t sure which hooks to use, and now reading your blog has definitely decided me to save up my pennies and get the Denise kit – it looks awesome, and with everything I’ll need to get on – thank you so much for putting it on here 🙂

      I’m glad I could help! It’s definitely fun and opens up a bunch of new ways to make things!
