Tunisian Crochet

Tunisian Crochet is much more than a fascinating new crochet stitch. And you don’t have to be an experienced or even an intermediate crocheter to create something amazing. It is a technique with similarities to both crochet and knitting but also brings many of its own benefits to the table. Worked with a single crochet hook with either a long symmetrical shaft or a long flexible cord, Tunisian crochet is created by picking up a loop in the stitch and leaving that loop on the hook, then moving to the next stitch. Once all of the indicated loops have been picked up, work the return pass, yarning over and drawing through the loops on the hook to work the loops off the hook and finish the stitch. That’s all there is to it. —Toni Rexroat, 7 Free Tunisian Crochet Patterns
