I have been so scared of tunisian crochet for a while now, and I'm not sure why. Smiley
I started going just little patches and then thought I should make it into something, so I'm using it as a wallet. It's a bit big, but so is my purse, so it works. Smiley







Comments are VERY welcome! And if anybody has any tips on tunisian crochet, I would love to hear them. Smiley

Great job!  I've been afraid of Tunisian crochet too, but also am having trouble finding hooks in my area.  I love the idea of practicing by making patches.  My hubby would love this little pouch, he is a nintendo freak lol.

I actually had a really hard time too. I got one of my hooks with the "I taught myself to crochet" kit. The other I found, but it's cabled and has 2 hooks. I find that it's more difficult to use because it flops around a lot. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't find many in my area either. We only have about 2 craft shops in town, so it's hard to find what you need! lol

Great job!
I don't like the cabled hooks either. I think it was smart for you to start small.
It really is an easy stitch especially if you practice first using a single colour.
Once you get the hang of it you fall into a nice rhythm with it and it's so fun to be
able to make images with them.

Yes! I'm definitely learning that now! lol. I'm really addicted now. Currently I'm working on another Mario project that will probably be a change purse. It's pretty easy to use Mario because of the pixel images, so it's not quite supposed to be so smooth looking. Smiley

Oh!  I love this!

I have yet to learn Tunisian, although my mom did give me her size I afghan hook.  What size hook did you use?  And is that worsted weight yarn?
