How To Crochet The Tunisian Full Stitch
Here we are again, with another stitch: the Tunisian Full Stitch (TFS). This stitch is super quick and easy to do! It does curl at the top and bottom quite a bit, but blocking will fix this right up!
To work the Tunisian Full Stitch (TFS), you will insert your hook in the space between two stitches. The stitches are offset to the previous row. This stitch does not have a multiple, so you can chain any number of stitches to work the swatch with me.
I like this stitch because the ease of which to do it is actually satisfying and the texture is super pleasing to the eye.

Worsted/Aran/#4 weight yarn–Brava Worsted by Knit Picks in Cornflower, Tidepool, Alfalfa, and mint. I was able to get 2 squares out of each skein. As there are 12 squares, if you are using the same yarn, you will need 3 of each. I also used Brava Worsted Speckle in Tidal for borders and joining.

Fiber: 100% premium acrylic
Crochet Gauge: 11-14 sc = 4″ on I-K hooks (5.5mm-6.5mm)
Machine was and dry
I used a 6.5mm Tunisian hook from Furls and also one from Love To Crochet–a set I bought on Amazon.
To work this swatch with me, I recommend doing at least 4″ x 4″ square to learn the stitch before doing a pattern. For the CAL, you will need to do this for 12″ x 12″ square. This stitch does not have a multiple, you can simply crochet any number of stitches until you reach the desired measurement.
Complete a normal foundation row–you can find instructions for this in the Introduction to Tunisian post, here.
Row 1, Forward Pass: Crochet a row of TFS, begin in the first space and skip the last space, end with a normal edge stitch.
