Giant Tunisian Crochet

The weekend before last, I went to a hobby and crafts show in Birmingham. I came back with plenty of yarn and best of all my 2.4 cm Tunisian crochet hook.

It wasn’t long before I put it to work making a nice, chunky scarf. I split open a bag of Patons “Colour Works Aran” and removed four balls.

Using the Tunisian simple stitch, I worked the four balls into a thick fabric weight chains wide (though I could/should have used ten, I think).

It took me about five days to crochet the scarf, from start to finish. However, I’m pretty sure that with the inclination and without distractions I could have made it  four hours.

It feels really soft and I reckon it will be gorgeously warm in  coming winter months.

I’m looking forward to making some nice chunky blankets  in the future.

    Where online can one buy a 2.4 cm hook, I’m not finding one. I love what you made and it’s inspired me to try Tunisian crochet! Thanks Cathy
