Tunisian Crochet Basics and Short Row Scarf- Kim & ARNie

Saturday 3:30 pm - 6 pm in the Banquet Hall
(Locations of classes may change depending on enrollment.)

Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Class fee: $10 (in addition to Registration fee)

ARNie will start this session teaching students the basics of Tunisian Crochet- including the two stitches used in Kim Guzman’s scarf. Then Kim Guzman will take over and teach students two Short Row techniques. This is a favorite of Kim's online classes.

Self-striping yarn and Tunisian crochet join together for the perfect combination of color and texture in this Tunisian Short Row Scarf.

Tunisian Short Rows, just like in knitting, create wedges. The scarf is made using two different stitches and two different short row techniques. Once learned, the pattern is easily adaptable to make a project any size you like.

Kim designed this scarf to avoid the annoying curl so often associated with Tunisian crochet, and the technique is perfectly adaptable to any yarn.

Instructional materials and pattern are included in class fee.

Supplies Needed:
Yarn- student’s choice in weight and fiber content. For the class, medium colored yarn or pastels is suggested due to the lighting of the room. Although, designed with variegated/self striping yarn, participants are encouraged to use a solid colored yarn during the class.
An afghan or long hook that is 2 or 3 sizes larger than what the chosen yarn label recommends.
For most of us in Texas, our hook choices are few and far between. ARNie suggests looking at Sport or Baby Weight yarn and a J or K (6-6.5mm) hook, since these sizes of hooks are more readily available.

The scarf shown is made with 3 balls (575 yards) of Crystal Palace Mini Mochi in colorway 113. It is a fine weight yarn. Kim used a size J afghan hook for the main pattern and an F crochet hook for the trim.
