English Name: Twisted Tunisian Simple Stitch (tw tss)
Spanish Name: Punto Bajo Tunecino Retorcido
Instructions: Using the hook tip, pull the front vertical bar in the direction of the beginning of the row and then loop the hook around the vertical bar, turning the hook tip so the hook is now facing you, the vertical bar will now be fully looped around the hook, yarn over, pull loop through.
Notes: This is a really nice stitch. You don’t see it very often because it’s nearly impossible to understand how to do it from written instructions and, unfortunately, there is no distinct symbol. It’s the same as the Tunisian Knit Stitch. You have to use care and follow the written instruction for the twisted stitch if you have only a chart because the same symbol could mean either one.

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 PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
