I can't find tunisian crochet hooks. Where can I get them?
I got mine at Micheals. You can also try Joann fabrics or online. They can be hard to find. Especially in different sizes.
Try looking for afghan hooks
I call this afghan stitch, very easy to do.
Found them at hobby lobby
my tunisian crochet is always so tight, any tips?
I had trouble with tight stitches and curling I. The beginning. I suggest keeping your fingers nice and relaxed. Also when doing the starting chain, either use a bigger size hook or work extra loose. When doing the actual stitches, try giving them an extra tug when you are pulling up a loop. It will take practice but just try to relax your hands and work loosely.
there crochet hooks they have no specific name, also this particular stitch likes to curl, if you put a border on it, it will help it from curling
I couldn't find them either, Leah Lowe. I made my own using dowel rods. They work great!
Also known as the afghan stitch.
another tip I've found to help with tightness and curling is to chain 1 after you've pulled your yarn through the "bar." It REALLY helps the tension and curling...
You can get the hooks at Michael's, Joanns, and even Walmart! I just learned how to do this recently and am LOVING it!!!!!
I love this stitch. I just made two potholder sofast. I usually lose count of my stitches. With this one it is so easy.
This made it easy for me to learn, except I made my first row to tight and it's curling up on me. How can I loosen it? Or should I just redo the foundation?
So Mary - If you do 15 for your chain, and make it long enough to be the width of a baby blanket, then end it, would you just keep keep crocheting strips until you have enough for the length of the blanket and then stitch them together? Just started crocheting! Thanks!
