Tapestry Crochet

Carol Ventura

This seems to be a lovely technique - Tapestry Crochet - and fairly simple if you can do single crochets. (Though you can use other stitches).  Making it 'flat' is a little trickier as you have to crochet from right to left, and then left to right - in order to stay on the 'right side'.  However, if you crochet in the round - this is much easier as you are always working on the 'right side'.   Click here for a video link, with a very good tutorial
The work can also be felted if made in pure wool.

How interesting; it almost looks like beading. Love the bright colors on the first one.

Hi Judy - I agree - the colours too are super.
