• this is a base row of single crochet
  • one linked 2-uple treble - if you look at it sideways you can see how it's like a row of tunisian simple stitch standing on its end, so the end is hooked into the top of the single crochet stitch below it
  • turning chain that is also the base of the first 2-uple treble

and so it begins

A while back Ashley tweeted a link to this shawl at me. Gorgeousness. And absolutely mind-boggling. I've been trying to push my crochet skills - and my Tunisian skills - a lot lately and this seemed like a great challenge. So far I am exceedingly pleased with the pattern! She links to a helpful video on the techniques she uses (check it out! her accent is super charming and you can hear how almost all the terms are unfamiliar to your average crocheter - even average tunisian-er - it's like a WHOLE OTHER CRAFT). The pattern also tells you how to make this little swatch, which is helpful if you're unfamiliar with Tunisian linked stitch techniques. See my notes on what stitches are where.

As a hilarious aside - this swatch is in a skein of Vanna's Choice (a completely non-crappy acrylic yarn!) that I was made to take from a yarn swap a while back, when it was discovered that I had just brought a bunch of yarn and unloaded it on the other participants and didn't end up taking anything (which I did on purpose. they were not pleased).

    "2-uple"? I don't see that in google.
