Tunisian Extended Stitch (tes): When used at the beginning of the row, it simply means that you chain one to bring the first stitch up to height.

Tunisian Double Stitch (tds): Yarn over, insert hook in stitch indicated 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, yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook, one loop remains. More information on Tunisian Double Stitch.

Crossed tds: This symbol indicates two tds, in a cross. For this pattern, the tds are worked as above, as you would for tss. You skip one stitch, work the tds, then come back to the one you skipped and work another tds.

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.
