The survival of Tunisian crochet as a technique is due in large part to Angela R. N. (ARNie) Grabowski. She's the author of the Encyclopedia of Tunisian Crochet and the creator of www.chezcrochet.com, a website on which you can find a comprehensive collection of Tunisian stitches and tutorials, patterns, specialty hooks, and so much more. Interestingly enough, Ms. Grabowski views herself as a technician rather than a designer because she likes to focus on the mechanics of creating stitches rather than project patterns. She's come up with some amazing and innovative ways of creating the look of knitted cables through the Tunisian technique and has designed her own collection of hooks to make it even easier and more fun.
