English Name: Modified Tunisian Simple Stitch (mod tss)
Spanish Name: Unknown
Instructions: Insert hook in a side to side motion (right to left for right-handers or left to right for left-handers) under front vertical bar then also insert it under the top horizontal bar of the chain closing, yarn over, pull loop through.
A “modified” stitch is simply a modification of any stitch that is different than typical and hasn’t yet been given an official name. This is a simple stitch and top bar stitch combined. It makes the thinnest fabric I’ve encountered from any of the Tunisian stitches. It’s a lovely fabric. It just takes a bit longer when trying to get the hook under both spots, but is definitely worth it.
I didn’t invent this stitch; I am simply demonstrating it. I first learned it from Rebekah Thompson.
