Tunisian Chain Top Loop Stitch (tchtls): For this stitch, you will work into the closing chain, sometimes known as the horizontal bar. Since these are only chains, it has the usual three bars to each chain. With the chain tipped on its side so the front bar is on top and the back horizontal bar is in the back, insert hook from front to back under the top loop of the chain, yarn over, pull loop through. More information on this stitch here.

Tunisian Chain Back Bar Stitch (tchbs): For this stitch, you will work into the closing chain, sometimes known as the horizontal bar. Since these are only chains, it has the usual three bars to each chain. With the chain upside down so the back horizontal bar is exposed at the top, insert hook from front to back under the back bar of the chain, yarn over, pull loop through. More information on this stitch here.

Closing: For this stitch pattern, you will be closing three stitches together at the top. To do this, you yarn over and pull through 4 loops on hook. When working on lace, always remember that there is one loop already on the hook. When you are closing 3 stitches, you are pulling through 4 loops. This symbol is interpreted as: ch 1, yo, pull through 4 loops on hook, ch 1.

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 2, yo, pull through 4 lps on hook (shell made), rep from * until 2 lps remain on hook, ch 1, yo, pull through 2 lps on hook, 1 lp remains.

Row 1:
A: Sk first vertical bar, *tchtls in ch, tchbs in top of shell, tchtls in ch, rep from * to last st, insert hook in last st under two outer vertical bars of last st.
B: *Ch 2, yo, pull through 4 lps on hook (shell made), rep from * until 2 lps remain on hook, ch 1, yo, pull through 2 lps on hook, 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.
