CrochetKim Book Review: Tunisian Crochet Baby Afghans by Kim Guzman

Tunisian Crochet Baby Afghans by Kim Guzman

This is one of my first Tunisian crochet books. Naturally, it’s baby afghans because I really love baby afghans. I was just a wee baby designer when I sold these to Annie’s. After all this time, it’s still one of my favorite books.

It was quite by accident when I discovered the Tunisian Reverse Stitch and reintroduced it to the world with these afghans. Way back when I first introduced these books, no one was widely publishing with Tunisian Reverse Stitch.

The introduction of these books is what really heralded a change in the way people responded to Tunisian crochet. The Reverse Stitch turned some heads and changed some minds.

It’s so wonderful knowing that I had a big part in changing the role of Tunisian crochet by throwing Reverse Stitch into the fray!

If you’re interested in trying out these baby blankets, you’ll only need to learn a few things in Tunisian crochet.

Please note that the book itself calls the Reverse Stitch by the name of Purl Stitch. I’ve actually used the Reverse Stitch in this book, but the publisher called it Purl Stitch.

This is what I mean when I said above that this book is what heralded new and different things in Tunisian. We didn’t know what to call the stitch because it wasn’t in use! In my later books, I started reinforcing the use of the Reverse Stitch name and it’s in mainstream use now.
