Welcome to the world of Tunisian crochet. Svalnäs is not woven, knitted, or crocheted – it worked in Tunisian crochet in a waffle pattern. Waffle crochet is one of many variations of Tunisian crochet (krokning ) – maybe even one of the nicest! If you have had previous experience with knitting or crochet and want to try Tunisian crochet, this is the perfect project to begin with. You’ll find instruction videos on the technique on Järbo’s YouTube channel. Tunisian crochet produces a durable and very decorative result which is excellent for pillow covers. The cover can be ironed and is machine-washable on the wool/gentle program so you’ll get many years use of it.
