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

Instructions:

Tunisian Half Slip Stitch (thsls): 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, insert hook in a side to side motion in next front vertical bar, yarn over, pull loop through AND pull same loop through the next loop on hook as well.

This stitch has now created one loop on the hook. If you have created two loops, you need to make sure that you remember to do the instruction at the end of pulling the loop through all the way, as described.

Foundation:
A: Ch an even number, sk first ch, *insert hook in next ch, yo, pull lp through, leave lp on hook, rep from * across.
B: Ch 1, [yo, pull through 2 lps on hook] across, 1 lp remains.

Row 1:
A: Sk first vertical bar, [yo, thsls across next 2 sts] to last st, insert hook in last st under two outer vertical bars, yo, pull lp through.
B: Ch 1, [yo, pull through 2 lps on hook] across, 1 lp remains.

Row 2:
A: Sk first vertical bar, [thsls across next 2 sts, yo] to last st, insert hook in last st under two outer vertical bars, yo, pull lp through.
B: Ch 1, [yo, pull through 2 lps on hook] across, 1 lp remains.

Rep rows 1-2 for pattern.

Notes: This is a nice stitch that doesn’t curl as so often seen with individual stitches. When working a flat swatch, I will typically make the last stitch under the two outer vertical bars for stability. It isn’t a requirement and I don’t use it for all applications of the same stitch pattern. It’s solely a finishing technique.
