I first found Toni through her YouTube channel when I needed to learn Tunisian crochet for a sweater I was commissioned to make. She has one of the BEST crocheting YouTube channels out there for both regular and Tunisian patterns and tutorials, and I quickly snatched up a copy of her book when it came out. Inside, there are fantastic instructions for the most basic of Tunisian stitches. The patterns in this book are timeless but trendy, the instructions are clear and concise, and if you need additional help, she has YouTube stitch tutorials as well as a blog to get you through!  —Carissa

From fiber artist Toni Lipsey of TL Yarn Craft, an introduction to the craft of Tunisian crochet—a unique crochet style that looks more like knitting—with 20 projects for beginners.
There are hundreds of books that explore traditional crochet, but there are few that reference the concept of Tunisian crochet or present it in a modern, approachable way. The Tunisian Crochet Handbook introduces this fascinating and rewarding technique with a wide array of stitches and design possibilities. The goal of this book is to guide crocheters step-by-step through Tunisian crochet, starting with tools and yarns, transitioning into how-to’s and stitches, and finishing with easy but engaging patterns.
Every shawl, garment, and accessory featured takes makers beyond the basics, introducing new stitches to expand their skill sets. In this way, author Toni Lipsey is reintroducing crochet and encouraging makers to explore the craft further with each new design. Crochet continues to grow in popularity, and this guidebook offers a new take on the timeless classic, one that readers won’t be able to find anywhere else.
Includes instructional sections and patterns, complete with the necessary schematics and styled, chic photographs.
