Tunisian crochet is, by far, my favorite in the crochet genre. I have over four hours of free online videos in Tunisian crochet.
This page is a work-in-progress. I’m trying to pool all information together for each video, including written instruction, photo, symbol and any other helpful information.
I have more published Tunisian crochet patterns by a single designer than anyone in the world!
I’ve written a lot of books on Tunisian crochet. I have a lot of free online patterns on my website here as well. I’ve decided to write a Tunisian Crochet Library here because I find online resources sorely lacking in Tunisian crochet instructions. Some people write “memoirs”. I write Tunisian crochet!
Tunisian crochet is ever evolving. The things that have changed and evolved since I first started writing books on Tunisian crochet in 1998 have been incredible. There are so many stitches and stitch combinations. It’s a beast! It’s possibly bigger than knitting and crocheting combined.
As the years have gone by, stitch names have changed. Some stitches have no name at all. They may be called a “modified” stitch until a name comes into practice. The important thing to remember is that everything is changing so always read the special stitches instructions of the pattern to ensure that you are using the correct stitch.
I am using solely Cascade 220 Superwash Wool for all the swatches in this Tunisian Crochet Library. I love how well the stitches show in this yarn and it blocks out perfectly. Thanks so much to Cascade Yarns for providing the yarn used in these swatches.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
