    The name says it all: Tunisian crochet came from Tunisia and has gained fans all over the world. A little more elaborate than normal crochet, it is composed of tighter, thicker and firmer weaves. And you can do several things with this crochet, from bags, pillows, clothes and blankets to warm up your days!
