Curling at the edges is one of the little quirks of Tunisian crochet. In this episode of B.Hooked TV you’ll learn four tips that will help you reduce the curl in your Tunisian crochet projects.
First of all, you’re not doing anything wrong.
Curling is something we all experience when working through a Tunisian crochet project. Sometimes the curl is worse than others and it’s usually directly related to the size of the hook as well as a few other conditions. Fortunately, the work will usually only curl on the top and bottom of the project.
So why does it curl in the first place? Because Tunisian crochet projects are never turned, the yarn is always being pulled in the same direction. This pull causes the curl. Try some of these tips to reduce the curl in your next Tunisian crochet projects.
