As with any sponsorship, we have a responsibility to provide them the BEST thanks, mentions and putting forth the name of JOANN throughout our social media for helping us. We ask that ALL of you, please thank JOANN.com on their Facebook Page for supporting the Crochet Cruises in a wild and fun adventure crocheting and hookin’ the High Seas with The Crochet Crowd.

Welcome Aboard Everyone! We are super delighted and welcome you on board Celebrity Reflection. A ship designed for your comfort. I would describe this as the ship to sit back, relax and let your cares float away for an extended Crochet Cruise. This cruise is infused with crochet techniques and ideas. With my co-host teacher, Dela Wilkins, an Expert of Tunisian. She is all ready to inspire you with what she calls ‘recipes’. Her goal is to give you the techniques of the hook movements to form different stitching patterns. What you do with your hook after you learn a stitch is part of your own personal recipe. It’s a neat way of looking at her work. With any Crochet Cruise, we try to pull you from your comfort zone. Of course, this is your vacation, do what you feel is comfortable for you. You don’t know what you love or dislike until you try. With the comfort of nearly 80 crocheters along side you, you are in good hands. We each love something different and bring our joys of crochet with us in unity. As usual, we recommend you table hop throughout your time with us. Don’t sit in the same spot as moving around will allow you to meet more people. You may find your future friends. For our return cruisers, this is a reunion and for new cruisers, feel free to jump right in! This workshop book, sponsored, in part, by JOANN Fabrics and Crafts is your guide to creativity throughout the week. All of the activity packages have the yarn to do projects in this book. You get to pick and choose what you prefer to do. Our workshops are set but if you want to sit quietly as the demonstrations are going on and work on other things, you are welcome to do so. Let your minds open, creativity soar, soak up the sun and let’s hook the Caribbean together! Mikey & Diva Dan

What to Expect in Our Social Spaces Being a longer cruise and more days at sea, we are taking a breath, relaxing, and focusing not just on the classroom environment but the talent that we can all share. With Mikey at the helm, and with Dela and our helpers, we have decided to do a new approach to classroom teaching. This cruise we are asking those that can help to be the strong supporters and ambassadors of Crochet/Tunisian. We are doing round robins for our classroom. There is so much to explore, to teach, and to discover, why focus on one project for the class where you have the help from so many others. What is a Round Bobin? We will set up the classroom with tables devoted to certain projects, easy, intermediate or advanced. So walk around, choose a table and make new friends. After you have mastered a stitch or the skill, feel free to move to another table and learn. This pattern book is going to give you just a taste of what we are going to explore. We have the schedule at the back of this book with ‘what to bring’, and scheduled times, location and the classroom activity. When you come to class, sit where you will feel the most comfortable. Pick a project you want to learn. For most of the classroom activities, we will be doing round robins but keep in mind we will be having plenty of non-formal stitch socials, and regular class structure throughout the cruise. For those that love to share and help, please let us know. Your experience can be the support and love for those that just need a bit more encouragement and positivity. Enough said, so let’s enjoy the cruise, have a ball in the Southern Caribbean, laugh, smile, love and enjoy that sun!

We are all friends when it comes to Charity Over the years, the Crochet Cruises have been more then just a classroom full of ‘hookers’, we have become amazing friends! We have laughed, cried, shared thoughts, and even expressed the need for help and help was there. These are what the cruises mean to us. ‘Being there’ and friends are about being there whenever they can be. Project Linus is exactly the same meaningful approach. This is why we asked that you do your favourite ‘FRIENDSHIP’ square before the cruise. Look at each square as a little bit of ourselves, the yarn, the pattern, and think that when we put these afghans together, a little bit of all of will be add to each blanket. A truly meaningful part of why we do what we do on these cruises. We will ask you to add your amazing squares on a pile for all to take part and enjoy on opening night. Step one, choose your squares, your theme, colour etc. Be different, don’t choose your own squares but choose others. We want each afghan to display the true heart of ALL of us working together for a common cause. A little bit of ALL our love. Recommended 9 squares of the same size. You can go larger with more squares if you wish. Let everyone get at least 9 squares first. Step two, you can choose your yarn. Please be mindful, JOANN.com has provided us a wonderful amount of ‘community yarn’ that we can all share. Choose one or two balls. Throughout the week, if you do not use the entire ball, you can add it back to the community stash for others to enjoy. You can either, continue with creating more fun with a border on each square or you can connect the squares as is whether that is sewing them together or discovering a whole new technique. Ask your neighbour, learn from each other. Never be afraid to ask. Be creative, we have brought some books for borders that you can sign out. If you are struggling with pattern reading, let us help you. Ask a neighbour. We have three classes devoted to Project Linus and the rest of the cruise to finish them at your own pace.

We thank all of you for getting started on Project Linus ahead of time. We hope that our love and creations will be in a home for many and that our contributions will be brought with comfort and thankfulness. 5


Dishcloth Marathon

Learn to Tunisian Round Robin

With this exercise, we ask for you to sit at any of the tables that meet your strength and knowledge of Tunisian. We have set up tables for the very first beginners, novice beginners to more intermediate. Each table will have a helper or two. As you progress, feel free to move around the tables to expand your knowledge base of your comfort level and interest.

The Basics

Understanding Tunisian is like understanding both Crochet and Knitting at the same time. We begin with forward (Fp) and Return (Rp) passes. Getting you started. Chain 27 Note: Work into horizontal bumps at back of foundation chain for the 1st row.

Forward Pass 1st Row: Forward pass (Right to Left). Draw up a loop in 2nd ch from hook. Draw up a loop in each of the remaining (rem) ch to end of chain, leaving all loops on hook. 27 stitches on hook. Do not turn.

Left Handers work in opposite motion. Forward pass is Left to Right, return pass is Right to Left.

Return Pass Return pass: (Left to right). Yarn over hook (Yoh) and draw through last loop on hook (edge st). *Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook. Repeat (Rep) from * until 1 loop rem on hook. Do not turn.

Tunisian Extended Simple Stitch

EASY

Chain 27 After making the TSS foundation chain, chain one before making the next stitch. You can extend any stitch in Tunisian crochet by adding a chain 1. This is similar to extended stitches in regular crochet.

Griddle Combination

Chain 27 Row 1: alternate TSS and TDC for every stitch Row 2: alternate TDC and TSS for every stitch 16 rows. Note: 2 row repeat of Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS) alternating with a Tunisian Double Stitch (TDS). You will notice, in the second row the TSS is above the TDS from the previous row, and the TDS is above the TSS from the previous row. This is very similar to the Crochet Crinkle Stitch alternating from single crochet to double crochet but in an asembly line.

Tunisian Half Double Dishcloth

EASY

Tunisian Half Double: Thdc is similar to a regular half double crochet stitch done in an assembly line. Make a yarn over (YO) after each TSS in the foundation row. For the return pass, YO (Yarn Over), pull through edge stitch, YO and pull through 3 loops (these are the chain, the YO and the TSS from the forward pass). On the next and all other forward passes, continue the YO after each stitch, but pick up both loops of the Thdc stitch of the previous row. Thdc fabric lies flat. 26 rows.

Tunisian Half Double Cowl

Challenge Yourself

In Tunisian crochet, the half double stitch looks similar on both sides, lies flat, and the colour changes are clean lines. The THDC is looser. Size: 6 x 60 inches, joined. Tools: 6.5 mm Tunisian crochet hook, tapestry needle for weaving in ends. Materials: Bernat POP! (Aran weight) 150200 grams Stitches: Tunisian Half Double Crochet into the back bump of the return pass chain. Chain 17. Work THDC into the back bump of each chain stitch. There will be 33 loops on the hook. Return pass. Rows 1-116: Work the THDC into the back bump of each stitch of the return pass. Bind off with the same size hook, join short ends to form a cowl. Options: To emphasize the colour changes, add one or more rows of regular half double crochet to the side edges. Use the same size or a larger hook than for the Tunisian stitches.

Tunisian Garter Stitch Dishcloth/ INTERMEDIATE Drying Mat/ Bath Mat Using two different yarns to give fabulous texture, the garter stitch is great for using yarns that can be a bit more difficult to work with in crochet. Also the ability to

Chain 27 and make square for dishcloth, chain 40 x 72 rows for Drying Mat, Chain 100 x 82 rows for Bath Mat. Hook: Cro-Hook - 6.5mm Row 1-2 in this process, you work the chain and the FP only then TURN to do the return pass. Note for Colour Change: Foundation row: Chain 25 stitches with the darker colour. Make a forward pass in Simple Stitch with the same colour. When the hook is full, turn the hook and attach the second colour to begin the return pass. When the return pass is completed, one stitch remains on the hook. Both working yarns are at the same location, at the beginning of the row. You now have the option to use the darker colour to make the next forward pass and use the lighter colour in the return pass. To do this, chain 1 in the FP colour and pull the return pass final loop tightly to end the return pass. Continue until the cloth is square. Bind off in the darker colour.

BE SURE TO CROCHET LOOSELY!! Begin with darkest color (Color A), chain desired width. Starting with the next to last stitch of the chain begin casting loops on hook (forward pass). 1 loop per stitch until you have reached the end of the chain. Be sure to count loops, you should have the same amount of loops on your hook as you made chain stitches (multiple of 3+1).

Chain3, pull 3rd chain through 3 loops, [** chain 3, come through 3 loops**] until you have all the loops off the hook. Chain 1. With the same Color B, skip 1 stitch and start casting loops back on the hook by using your chain 3’s between each cluster. [** 3 loops, skip 1 stitch, 3 loops, skip 1 stitch**]. This includes all 3 of the chain 3 on the end. You are working into the upper horizontal loop of the return pass chain. Reverse hook, pick up Color A, and bring through 1st loop on the hook.

Tunisian Star Entrelac Dishcloth

Advance

This Star Entrelac Dishcloth uses the Tss. Once you have mastered the Tss, this will take you to another level in understanding stitch counts and rows showing how to create very interesting entrelac stars. The numbers of wedges could be 6, 7, or 8, depending on your gauge.

Chain 12 Make a foundation row in Tss pg 5. Row 2-10: **TSS 3, yarn over, TSS 5. 12 stitches on the hook in every row. In each row, you leave the last stitch unworked, giving you a small point at the end of each row, for 9 unfinished rows in total. The next row finishes this wedge and begins the next one: Chain one and bind off the first 9 stitches. Continue in TSS along the 3 stitches on this row, and then pick up the 9 stitches along the skipped ends of the previous rows. 12 stitches on the hook. **

Options: To make a smaller cloth, start with 9 stitches and work 7 rows per wedge. Working in a different colour for each point makes it easier to count the stitches and rows. One way of starting this is to use the final point colour to make the chain and forward pass row for the first point, begin the first point colour on the first return pass row. This will make it easier to sew up the seam.

Repeat rows 2-10. Continue making wedges until the fabric is flat. The number of wedges could be 6, 7 or 8, depending on your gauge. In the final wedge, continue to bind off all 21 stitches in row10.

Reversible Shells Blanket This variation on the shells baby blanket uses Tunisian Double Crochet stitches. This allows use of a heavier yarn and a smaller hook.

Size: 43 x 34 inches Tools: 6.5 mm double-ended or crohook, tapestry needle to weave in ends Materials: Bernat POP!, Aran weight, 420-560 grams Stitches: Tunisian Double Crochet In this sample, begin the second side colour at least 2 colours away from the first to avoid having the same colour on each side at the same time. Instructions: Using the pattern from Gerry Cummings, work a Tunisian Double Stitch on the Forward pass instead of a simple stitch. This adds height and opens the fabric for a better drape. Variation: For the three stitches worked into the chain, make this alteration: Make the first Tdc into the return row chain Skip the second chain, and make the second Tdc into the loop joining the three stitches in the row below. Chain 1 to extend the height of this middle stitch. Make the third Tdc into the third chain of the return pass in this set.

Tunisian Jazzy Freeform Cowl

FUN!

Dela will be around in the evening for a free for all stitch socials in the lido cafeteria. Feel free to come and join her to learn more stitchs and create this freeform cowl. Jazz Crochet is based on a knitting concept known as jazzknitting by Ilisha Helfman. It is called a thoughtful improvisational way to work with multi coloured yarns or striped yarns, such as sock yarns and hand-dyed yarns. You assign one stitch or technique for each colour and apply this as the yarn changes colour. Techniques can include popcorn stitches, chain loops, short rows and more. Rows may vary in length so the side edges wander in and out, all part of the “no rules” approach to this freeform style. This is an excellent way to learn your stitches without having to learn a pattern. After all, once you have learnt the stitches, patterns will be easier to understand. Also this way of learning can get you out of that comfort zone. There is no perfection in this cowl, colour is up for grabs and you will have a lot of fun devolping new ideas. Find a sitting buddy, have some ice cream, maybe a drink and becoming a designer.

Crochet Mosaic Blanket

Advance

Mosaic Crochet is an old technique of having two separate projects working together as one. Both projects are filet mesh. You need to start both projects to complete each Row 1. Mosaic Crochet then takes over in how you position the filet mesh posts as you crochet. Both filet meshes are intermixed with each other. You need to consider there are 2 set of instructions for each row. You will crochet across using the main colour mesh and position the posts as you want the look to be. Then drop the yarn and go back and get the secondary colour to crochet along the row to bring the secondary colour with you. Once both filet meshes have been crocheted, you can turn your work and move to the next row.

Size: Tools: Crochet Hook Materials: Bernat Maker Dec Mesh 1 - Main Colour - Ch 16 Dc 6th chain from hook, *ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next. Repeat * across. Ch 4 and hold. - 6 ch-1 spaces available. Mesh 2 - Secondary Colour - Ch 14 Dc 6th chain from hook, *ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next. Repeat * across. Ch 4 and hold. - 5 ch-1 spaces available. Continue on next page Tips Start a row and drop the hook. Start the secondary colour to ensure you have started correctly on where the ch-4 for the secondary colour is. It’s easy to second guess your pattern if you are jumping to conclusions. From experience, I frogged prematurely thinking I was screwing it up. You need to do both filet meshes across to fully see the pattern emerge. It looks off.

Put Meshes Together and Begin to Crochet Them Together Place the Ch-4 of the secondary mesh in behind so it’s out of the way. Using ch-4 loop of main mesh, let’s begin. Row 1 Place the Ch-4 of the secondary mesh in behind so it’s out of the way. Wrap hook first, insert though first gap of the secondary mesh. Use hook to pull back the stitch through the secondary mesh, double crochet as usual - Double Crochet Back Stitch (dcbs). Ch 1, insert hook into the next dc on the main mesh st and dc as normal - double crochet front stitch (dcfs). *ch1, dcbs, ch 1, dcfs. Repeat * across. You will finish with final ch 1, dcbs, ch 1, dc in 3rd chain in turning chain. Ch 4. Drop the loop and go back to the get the secondary mesh to build forward. Wrap hook first, * bring secondary mesh through gap of the main mesh. Dc in the top of the secondary mesh. Ch 1, dc in the secondary mesh from behind. Ch 1. Repeat * across. Ending with dc with the secondary mesh through the front side. Ch 4. Turn project. Row 2 Bring ch-4 from secondary mesh and let rest in front of the project this time. You will crochet opposite to what you see. We will cover this in class. You will repeat Row 1 and Row 2 continuously. When repeating Row 1, ensure secondary colour ch-4 is left behind the work. When doing Row 2, ensure secondary colour is in front of the work. In time, it will be come obvious to you where to leave the Ch-4 before starting. Borders SC around capturing in both sets of filet meshes together on the starting rows and finishing rows and evenly space sc along the sides.

Excursions with ShoreTrips For all non-tender excursions that have been booked with Sherry through Shore Trips, please meet your group on the dock under the Celebrity tent just off the gangway. Arrive 30 - 40 minutes prior to your excursion. Please note that there will be different excursions within our group. We will make an announcement during the night class before when we reach port so that you know who is who and you can all go together. For tender ports such a Grand Cayman, we must work with the group event coordinator first to arrange a meeting place and time. In some cases we can get off first. We will see what we can do. We will announce our meeting time the last class before port. If you missed your group’s meeting place and time, it is your responsibility to meet at your excursion location which is printed on your excursion ticket. Don’t forget to bring your excursion print out, your passports/or identification, water, and please wear comfortable shoes and cloths. It will be hot.
