#Short #Row #Tunisian #Fashion ~ #Book #Review


Short Row Tunisian Fashion Front Cover
Book & eBook available at  LeisureArts.com

I don't know whether you know or not but I took a Craftsy Online Tunisian Crochet Class.
It really opened up my eyes to the beauty of Tunisian Crochet.
Since then I haven't really used what I have learnt so I decided to
find a pattern book that I would enjoy making projects from.
I came across Short Row Tunisian Fashion at LeisureArts.com



I decided to buy this book 1st off because of this
beautiful shawl.
I love wearing shawls around the house.
I love the beauty and versatility of them.

Triangles BeretTriangles Scarf

You can buy the individual pattern of the shawl
but when I looked at the other
beautiful designs in the book I decided
to pay that little extra and have all the projects to make.

Hooded Riding Cape

I love the mix of quicker and bigger projects.
I try and have one big project on the go
and break it up with smaller projects.

Puff Sleeve Cardigan

There isn't a single design in the book that I don't love.
Which is very rare.

Cobblestone Beanie

The designs are stylish and fun.
The use of colour really works.
I love the fact you get a finished item
that looks knitted and the versatility of knit projects.
I struggle with knitting so Tunisian Crochet is the perfect alternative for me.
The pattern is in written terms and full instructions, including pictures, are
given for each of the stitches you will use.
Not only that but when you buy these sets of patterns
you also have access to LeisureArts.com
instructional videos to help you learn the different stitches.
I know I used them when I was making the cobblestone beanie.
They made such a huge difference when I got a bit confused
with where I needed to add and miss stitches.

All in all I thing this is a fantastic value Book & eBook
I'm really looking forward to making all the projects
in the book.


I purchased the eBook myself
and all opinions expressed are my own.
