Tunisian crochet will always tend to curl. It’s mechanical. Yet there are several techniques to prevent edges from rolling. In this article I share my tips to fight against curling edges when making Tunisian crochet beanies.
You can make Tunisian crochet beanies in several different ways. So you won’t fight curling the same way in all cases. It all depends on the construction type of your beanie, whether you start it from the top or the bottom.
La Quadrature du cercle (Squaring the circle) is a free pattern I designed to make a square in the round with a double-ended Tunisian crochet hook. Hence the name…
I created this free pattern in the frame of the “Tunisian blanket CAL” organized by KnitterKnotter, alias Arunima, in 2021. It’s a Tcal during which several Tunisian crochet designers all around the world publish instructions to make squares in Tunisian crochet throughout the year. At the end of the year all these squares are meant to be seamed together to make a big blanket. For more details about the Tcal, follow KnitterKnotter. She’s the host centralising all patterns created by the participating designers.
Today I published my pattern Vaillance on Ravelry. It’s a seamless shrug made in Tunisian crochet. Actually, it is more a shoulder-warmer than a shrug. Indeed, this garment is not meant to cover the front part of the bust. The pattern is available in 5 sizes: XS, S, M, L and XL.
