If you have wanted to give Tunisian crochet a try, this is the perfect pattern to get started with. The Tunisian knit stitch creates a fabric that’s denser and less stretchy than even some knitted fabric. Using this simple, easy to learn technique and built in shaping, the pattern yields a final piece that is warm and beautifully figure flattering. Add a feminine touch with lace at the cuffs and hem to complete the crocheted sweater. Give Tunisian knit stitch a try when you download this beautiful crochet sweater pattern!
