The beautiful patterns in this book are easy to read and come with a handy stitch guide at the beginning of each pattern. You will also find the finished measurements of each project as well as the gauge to ensure that you have the correct sizing. My favorite thing about this book are the last two pages. They contain very useful information for any new crocheter or anyone new to Tunisian Crochet. The pages contain the standard yarn weights, Tunisian Crochet hook sizes, an abbreviation glossary, and more!

You can purchase Tunisian Crochet Today – Projects for You and Your Home from Martingale for $12.99 for the printed version + eBook or $7.99 for just the eBook.

I hope you will purchase this great book and try out all of the projects! If you already own it, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
