Level of Curling: Light to no curling. More information on the natural curling of Tunisian crochet.

Suggested Foundation: Typical foundation row.

Instructions: Bring yarn to the front of your work, 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, yarn over, pull loop through. This is essentially the same thing as a Tunisian Simple Stitch except that it has a little wrap of yarn around the front vertical bar.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
