Tunisian Simple Stitch (tss): 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. Click here for more stitch information.

Tunisian Simple Stitch Two Together (tss2tog): Insert hook from side to side (right to left for right-handers and left to right for left-handers) under TWO front vertical bars at the same time, yarn over, pull loop through.

Yarn over (yo) Note: When working on the next row following a yarn over, note that the yarn over has created the same front and back vertical bar as you usually see for the stitches. There is a front bar and back bar, they’re just spread apart. In this stitch pattern, you will be working tss at the yarn over position. You will work a tss just like you do any other time: under the front vertical bar.

Stitch Multiple

Chain any multiple of 3 then add 2.

Tunisian Crochet Pattern Instructions

Instructions:

Foundation:
A: 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, *tss in next st, tss2tog, yo, rep from * to last st, insert hook in last st under two outer vertical bars of last st.
B: Ch 1, [yo, pull through 2 lps on hook] across, 1 lp remains.

Row 2:
A: Sk first vertical bar, *tss2tog, yo, tss in next st, rep from * to last st, insert hook in last st under two outer vertical bars of last st.
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.
