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

Special Stitches:

Tunisian Extended tss2tog (ex.tss2tog): Insert hook in a side-to-side motion (right to left for right-handers or left to right for left-handers) under two front vertical bars at the same time, yarn over, pull loop through, chain 1. Think of this as a typical simple stitch decrease except there is a chain 1 at the top.

Tunisian Purled Chain Back Bar Stitch (p.tchbs): With yarn in front (as you would for a typical purl), insert hook from front to back under back horizontal bar of closing chain, yarn over, pull loop through.

Tunisian Crochet Pattern Instructions

Instructions:

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, [ex.tss2tog across next 2 sts, p.tchbs in next closing chain] 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 row 1 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.

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!
