Class Handout Progress: Steeking Tunisian Lace
The graphic below completes a section of the Steeking Tunisian Lace class handout. The base stitch is Tunisian Extended Stitch, or Tes. This chameleon-like stitch has other names and many variations (see newsletter #49). It’s versatile, slightly odd, and one of my favorites, so I’m delighted to be teaching this class topic for the CGOA conference.
Here are a few swatches that contrast some of the simplest variations of this Tunisian lace net.
“Teeks” stands for Tunisian knit stitch extended twice. Easier to say than Tkse².
I’m also creating a graphic of fancier variations of these nets for comparison (and inspiration!). I plan to pin them to my Pinterest boards like when I swatched and pinned a slew of star stitch variations a few years ago.
