Controlling Curl

Tunisian crochet fabric has a natural tendency to curl.  Here are a few hints to control this tendency:

  • Think BIG HOOKS!  When working the same yarn in standard crochet, consider a hook of wider diameter for Tunisian crochet.  Not only will you achieve a more desirable fabric drape, but you will be "combating the curl".
  • Work the base chain and the bind off loosely.  You may find it helpful to work these stitches in a larger diameter hook than the rest of the work. 
  • Block your work!
  • Edge your work with standard crochet stitches.
