I have been learning Tunisian Crochet.
I started by Picking up a few books and
then I discovered Videos
By Kim Guzman.
You can find those at this Link:
She also has a lot of
Free Patterns at this link:
These videos are excellent.
I normally do not like videos,
I more of a "book in hands"
This is my first Tunisian Crochet project.
This is not really a pattern.
Just an explanation of what
I did to make Maximo's Collar.
Skill - Easy, (But be sure to watch the 1st video, it will help you.)
Reflective Yarn - Red Heart - Grey (4) Any Worsted Weight yarn can be used
Regular Crochet Hook - J (This is such a small project you can use a regular crochet hook.)
1 decorative button ( I made this one with polymer clay )
How to make Polymer Clay buttons
Yarn needle to sew on button
Measuring tape to measure your dog's neck.
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS)
Note: I learned that you need to crochet looser then normal.
(My first project wasn't pretty.) If you crochet too tight it will curl up on you.
Okay, lets get started:
Step 1- Ch 8, skip the 1st ch,
*yarn over hook, pull thorough the next 2 loops,*
Repeat from *to* till there is only 1 loop left on the hook
keeping loop on hook,* Repeat *to* across.
Note: I kept dropping stitches, so I learned to count my loops after each pass.
Add a button, bow or what ever you like.
This Collar could easily be stitched in the
Tunisian Knit Stitch, as well.
This is a great project to do if you want to
learn Tunisian crochet,
and don't want to commit to a large project.
Its perfect for slipping on for evening walk at dusk.
