The past month has been an emotional roller coaster for me and my husband because both our moms passed away from Alzheimer's. While my mom was in palliative care, delving into learning Tunisian crochet helped focus my sadness into positive energy. Working away on the design of the Kayla pillow, I would sit by mom and crochet while keeping her company.
Mom taught me how to crochet when I was six. She instilled in me a love of everything DIY and craft. So it's come full circle: we're donating 100% of all pattern sales to benefit Alzheimers in memory of both our moms.
About the Tunisian Crochet Hook
Without knowing anything about Tunisian crochet, I assumed I could just order the hook size recommended on the yarn. But it turns out that Tunisian crochet works up much denser than regular crochet so you need to increase the hook size by at least 1 mm, if not more. For a worsted weight yarn, I would recommend a 6.0 mm double-end hook. A double end hook is essential for working with two colours.
