I am sure the crochet veterans here can vouch for the curling of most Tunisian crocheted fabric.
This annoyed me too, a newbie in Tunisian crochet. But I am so delighted to find a stitch that is not only so wonderful for its pattern and texture but more importantly for keeping the fabric absolutely flat. No. It is not the purl stitch. But the honeycomb stitch also called the seed stitch.
Here is a scarf I just completed crocheting in the Tunisian honeycomb stitch. No blocking, no steaming !!! Just straight flat fabric all the way ! I am happy the way this turned out.
And a closer view of the stitch pattern below …
PS: the gobelin scarf is also inching its way forward…just thought I will update you 🙂
