Technique: Tunisian Crochet

Finished Size

approx. 14 x 51”

Materials

Universal Yarns’ Deluxe Worsted (100% wool, 100g, 220 yds per hank)

Gauge

In stitch pattern, 11 sts and 15 rows = 4”. Gauge is approximate, due to the ups and downs of the rows.

Special Stitches

Video Support is available for these two stitches on my YouTube channel here. Both right- and left-handed versions are available.

Tunisian reverse stitch (trs): With hook behind work, insert hook from side to side under back vertical bar, always keeping hook to back of work, yo, pull up lp.

Tunisian knit stitch (tks): Insert hook between front and back vertical bars of the same stitch, coming out at back of work, yo, pull up lp.

Additional Abbreviations

ch=chain; lp(s)=loop(s); rem=remaining; rep=repeat; sl=slip; sk=skip; st=stitch; yo=yarn over

Notes

When instructed to “close normally”, close row as follows: ch 1, [yo, pull 2 lps] across.

To change colors, work closing until 2 lps remain on hook, drop the old color and close with the new color. Fasten off old color; carrying it up is not recommended.

To increase width, add multiples of 12 to the starting ch. The multiple is 12+8.
