Suggested Foundation Because this isn’t an insertion stitch, you can work the Extended Stitch directly onto the chain foundation instead of using a different stitch.

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, yarn over, pull loop through, chain 1.

This stitch has now created one loop on the hook. Think of it as a regular simple stitch with a chain on top.

Notes

As with all of the “tall” stitches in Tunisian crochet, you can usually use any of the Insertion stitches (i.e.; simple, knit, purl, etc.). See the Tunisian Crochet Library for other variations as they are added.

To begin a row of Extended Stitch, make a chain one at the beginning. With the shorter stitches, this is unnecessary, but as the stitches get taller, you will need extra height.

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!
