Sometimes called afghan crochet, Tunisian crochet is usually done with a long hook that has a bit on the end so your stitches don't fall off.

Anyway I don't have one of those hooks.....
So I picked up a normal crochet hook and my readers digest guide to all things crafty and taught myself how to do Tunisian crochet.

So this is what I made:



It's a mobile cosy or as I call it a mobile sleeping bag. Can you tell what the logo is?



I've used various different stitches: Basic (knit), purl, crossed and stocking. The logo is all done in stocking.



All snuggled up.

So that was fun and now I need to get a proper tunisian hook.

That's great!  I would like to do tunisian crochet - there just doesn't seem to be enough time to do all the great crafts I want to.
