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

Special Stitches:

Tunisian Double Stitch (tds): The Tunisian Double Stitch in this stitch pattern is worked as you would for Tunisian Knit Stitch; i.e. through the front and back vertical bars of the same stitch from front to back. Note that three doubles are made in the opening portion, shown in the chart, however they are tipped together during the closing when the chain is pulled through all of them at the same time, pulling them together at the top.

Notes: This is a nice stitch pattern 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’s shown as a Tunisian Knit Stitch in the chart.
