Tunisian crochet in Icelandic

In June 2010 I published my first book. The theme is Tunisian crochet with a touch of Icelandic traditions and science fiction. In the book, I describe basic Tunisian crochet, Tunisian crochet in the round, colour patterns, lace patterns and a total of 20 different models plus 5 variations. The educational part of the book covers 1/4 of the 96 pages. There are socks, mittens, hats, scarves, sweaters, shawls, a tie, a blanket, and so on.

The printed book is only available in Icelandic, but it is possible to get a Swedish translation on the side.

ISBN: 978-9979-70-778-3
