On my hook- Tunisian Crochet cowl. WIP Wednesday.

So, this week I have been mostly working on a Tunisian Crochet Cowl. The free gift this month with Simply Crochet magazine was a 6mm Tunisian crochet hook and a pattern book. Some of these  patterns are looking quite tempting, particularly a couple of cute colourful cushion cover. Only drawback? I don't know how to 'Tunisian Crochet'. :-(

Never mind- onwards and upwards! If I can teach myself to crochet I can teach myself Tunisian! After a few false starts I got my head around Tunisian Simple Stitch. I fumbled through this on my own with written instructions but there is a nice clear video on Tunisian Simple crochet on YouTube from Free Crochet Videos-do please pop along to the blog to check it out along with a nice clear picture tutorial.

After having a delve into my stash and coming up with a couple of balls of Stylecraft Vision Dk in redcurrant which is a nice self-striping pink shade (unfortunately now discontinued) I decided to whip up some kind scarf/cowl- so that's where I'm at on this #wipwednesday. I will post a pic once completed. :-)

So, what are you working on at the moment?
