On the same e-book where I learnt how to do the non – classic beaded rope necklace there were other patterns. (Click on the photos to go the page to download this free book.)
As I also liked the one on the very left I decided to give it a go. At this point I had not realised it was not ‘normal’ crochet, a good thing as I would probably never have given it a try if I had! (It is called Gold Wire Bracelet so no clues there!)
Trustingly I started to give it a go. I didn’t find it easy to start with:
But after re-reading the instructions a few times I got the hang of it 🙂 For those of you who don’t know the difference between crochet and Tunisian crochet – Tunisian crochet is a bit like knitting where you make stitches to leave on the hook and then ‘crochet’ them off on the next row.
After adding some beads I came up with this:
I have to say that I am rather pleased with the way it came out. I am also pleased that I have had a go at Tunisian Crochet – a bit of a mystery up until now. I will definitely be doing it again (now I know that you don’t need a special hook!) Have you ever had a try at Tunisian Crochet?
As always I am heading over to Handmade Harbour to see what everyone else has been up to this week. Do come and have a look too 🙂
