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: Ch 1, sk first vertical bar, [working under 2 front vertical bars at the same time, work 2-tds cluster (see Special Stitches above)] to last st, tds in last stitch under two outer vertical bars.
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.

Note that this is worked in Tunisian doubles, but it could just as easily be worked in other stitches. And, as with other of the “tall” stitches, you can insert your hook as you would for any of the insertion stitches. This one is worked as for Tunisian Simple Stitch, but you could use Purl, Knit, Reverse, for example.
