This past weekend I got to dive into the latest class on Craftsy – Custom Fit Tunisian Crochet, taught by the fantastic Dora Ohrenstein. My one word review – AMAZING! But I have a lot more to say below – AND a special link that will get Moogly readers the class for 50% OFF!

I already knew the name Dora Ohrenstein because I own one of her fantastic books, Custom Crocheted Sweaters: Make Garments that Really Fit. It’s one of the most informative books on crochet design I own! So when I got the chance to take this class via Craftsy, I jumped on it!
Custom Fit Tunisian Crochet is broken into 7 lessons, each between 10 and 40 minutes long – great chunks you can watch one at a time, or binge on all at once! It includes a great pullover vest pattern, worksheets, and a metric conversion chart in the materials, and you can buy an optional yarn kit if you like, so you can use the same yarn Dora does in the class!
The class itself is incredibly informative – so much so that you don’t even have to have made a sweater before! Dora even goes over the basic Tunisian stitches used, so this can be your first Tunisian project as well. There are lots of closeups, and Dora’s instructions are very clear. She also covers the yarn and tools – everything you need to get started!
The depth of knowledge shared in Custom Fit Tunisian Crochet really is…amazing! Everything from how to measure your own body, to creating your own custom schematic, to the types of changes you’ll want to make for every body type – including ones that are bigger than the sizes included in the pattern. The finishing info is fantastic too – seaming, blocking, she covers it all.
And I sincerely believe that this class is invaluable to both your average crocheter, and designers as well! I know now that any sweater I design after this will be better for having taken the class – Tunisian or no. In fact, there are fantastic tips and knowledge shared throughout, that apply to regular crochet as well – and knitting too I think!
My mind was simply buzzing with ideas, knowledge, and excitement when I finished this class! I’m so glad to have taken it – and I plan on re-watching sections of it too. Even though I took a ton of notes, I want to make sure to get all the goodies out of it!
So yes… it’s Amazing! And what’s even more amazing is the deal Dora is providing for Moogly readers!
