What is double sided crochet?
You use the same stitches as you would in Tunisian crochet except you will be using a long-ish tool with a hook of the same size on each end. … Because you are using two separate hooks, you will be using two separate balls of yarn. The yarn can be two different colors or the same color.
What do different crochet hooks do?
