Tunisian Crochet is a type of crochet that holds several loops on the hook in a similar manner as to knitting. The difference between the two is one uses a crochet hook and the other uses a knitting needle. The result is a fabric that is stunningly textured using a technique that combines both knitting and crochet. Tunisian Crochet is also commonly known as Afghan Crochet. It has also been called by an array of other names such as Shepherd’s Knitting, Railroad Knitting and Cro-hooking.
