Deborah tells us her views on Dora's book; The New Tunisian Crochet


A few of the designs appear a bit dowdy and old fashioned, but please don't let that put you off. This book is great for exploring Tunisian Crochet, you can start off with the sampler blanket and progress onto the more complex pieces that include shaping and lace.

I thought the brief history of Tunisian Crochet at the start was a nice touch and I will definitely be checking out some of the further reading list Dora includes.

9/10

What we said:

Dora’s step-by-step instructions are clear and easy to follow, with plenty of practical tips.
This book will open your eyes to the versatility of the Tunisian stitch. Our favourite technique in the book is the stunning entrelac work.
There are practical projects not only from Dora but also the likes of Doris Chan and even our own technical editor Charles Voth. A must-buy for anyone interested in the technique.

Readers can order The New Tunisian Crochet for the special price of £9.99, plus free UK p&p. Please visit www.stitchcraftcreate.co.uk/the-new-tunisiancrochet and quote code R111011 at the checkout, or call 0844 880 5851 to order.
