Color Therapy Cowl Tunisian Crochet
Color Therapy Cowl Tunisian Crochet 3/11

Instructed By: Marie Noah
Skill Level: Everyone
Wednesday, March 11 | 10:00 - 1:00

Tunisian crochet is fabulous. You must give it a try!
The Tunisian crochet has the look and feel of knitting. It’s very soft and flexible and so much easier than knitting! Color Therapy cowl is made using the Tunisian crochet technique. It is worked flat and only uses Tunisian simple stitch, which makes this project ideal for beginners. Students will learn how to change colors, create neat border stitches, and join quickly and easily.

The stitch pattern is reversible and creates delicate color “ladders” on one side, and stylish stripes on the other side.The design simplicity and the “neat” tips included in the class allow you to enjoy the beautiful colorplay without having to focus too much on the stitches. It’s a great take along project. New tunisian crocheters will find it just the right amount of challenge to grow your skills.

Color Therapy cowl is perfect as a crochet refresher or ideal for a basic crocheter looking to build skills. The pattern is easily memorized and makes a great on the go project.

This is a great class for seasoned knitters. These cute baby booties are worked in the round and start at the bottom with Judy’s Magic Cast on.
