I’d completely forgotten about this piece. I think I may have misunderstood the brief, which says ‘Include Tunisian textured stitches within a square of Tunisian crochet.’ I have done this very literally but maybe it means ‘a square of textured Tunisian’. I don’t mind if I have to do it again as I love the effect of Tunisian and am happy doing it on a small hook but I can’t find a way to do it comfortably on a long hook.
I passed my hairpin! I got ‘Excellent’ for everything, except the pale blue one which was a bit floppy; and one of the joins, which was a bit too tight. I think it’s unlikely I’ll be doing this technique again, but you never know.
This looks a bit of a mess but it is, in fact, my next batch of samples; my hairpin crochet braids. I really found this difficult to do as I am very cack-handed with the hairpin loom and didn’t get much pleasure from it. But I persevered and am reasonably pleased with the results, though I don’t know if I’ll be doing it again. The next project is now started and I’m being ultra-careful to make sure I don’t make any mistakes from the outset.
