The Learn Tunisian Crochet CAL is here! I worked super hard to get 12 Tunisian squares typed up and videoed for you to learn all about Tunisian Crochet! This is something that I have been thinking about for quite a while and now that it’s

How to Crochet the Tunisian Wide Ribs Stitch

Today’s stitch is the Tunisian Wide Ribs Stitch and it is our last one!  I cannot believe we are about to wrap this up!  After this stitch, we will put a border around each one and join with the zig-zag stitch that Helen provided a tutorial

Tunisian Basket Weave

Welcome back to another Tunisian tutorial: the Tunisian Basket Weave Stitch.  This stitch is deceptively easy to do but does require you to pay more attention to your repeats.  Both rows and stitch counts.  You only need to know how to do the TSS and the TPS stitches, which we’ve already covered earlier on in the CAL.

How To Crochet Tunisian Basket Weave Stitch

The Tunisian Basket Weave Stitch is worked with a 4 row repeat and 4 stitch repeat (actually 8 stitches…).  You will be alternating once again between TSS and TPS stitches, in blocks of 4 at a time.

I used:

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.

You can find Brava Worsted at WeCrochet

Written Instructions

Row 1

F: Work 3 TSS starting with the 1st bar (the loop on your hook counts as the first of 4 TSS), *work 4 TPS over next 4 sts, work 4 TSS over next 4 sts; rep from * across to edge stitch: work the edge stitch as the stitch you are on (ex: if you’re finishing up a set of TPS, work the edge stitch with the working yarn in front of the hook; if you are finishing up a set of TSS, work the edge stitch as normal).  OPTIONAL: you can, instead of working the stitch that goes along with your stitch repeat/pattern work a normal edge stitch.  I actually recommend this as it keeps it simple and clean.

R:  Normal return pass.

 

Row 2

Repeat row 1 working both F and R passes.

 

Row 3

F: Work 3 TPS with the 1st bar (the loop on your hook counts as the first of 4 TPS), *work 4 TSS over the next 4 sts, work 4 TPS over the next 4 sts; rep from * until the edge stitch: work the edge stitch with the stitch you are finishing a set of (ex: if you’re finishing up a set of TPS, work the edge stitch with the working yarn in front of the hook; if you are finishing up a set of TSS, work the edge stitch as normal). OPTIONAL: you can, instead of working the stitch that goes along with your stitch repeat/pattern work a normal edge stitch.  I actually recommend this as it keeps it simple and clean.

R: Normal return pass.

 

 

Row 4

Repeat row 3 working both F and R passes.

 

Repeat rows 1-4 until your square measures 12”

 

Bind off

You can do this with a 6.5mm regular crochet hook if you prefer—with the starting loop on your hook I recommend doing a TSS bind off as it creates an even ridge along the top and keeps the curling from happening.  Refer to the blog post linked at the beginning of the pattern to be reminded on how to do a TSS bind off.

Today’s Tunisian stitch is the Tunisian Honeycomb Stitch.  This is also known as the Seed Stitch.  I am in love with the texture on this one!  It looks hard to do but it is super easy!  You already know the two stitches you need to know

How To Crochet The Tunisian Smock Stitch

Welcome back to another Tunisian Stitch tutorial: the Tunisian Smock Stitch.  This is a super gorgeous stitch that looks a bit like lattice-work.  In fact, I’m pretty sure that it’s also known as the Lattice Stitch. To work the Smock Stitch, you will need to

TDCS

Let’s learn how to do the Tunisian Double Crochet Stitch (TDCS).  Last time, we learned all about the THDCS and it was a little different than we’re used to.  The TDCS goes back to the normal way of working a normal foundation row first, then getting into the stitch for the next row.

Working the stitch

To work the Tunisian Double Crochet Stitch (TDCS), yo, insert hook in the front bar, pull up a loop, yo and pull thru two loops on the hook.  Repeat with each stitch across.  To adjust for height, add a chain to both the left and right edges of the fabric.

There are a couple of ways to work the left edge stitch, one of which, I prefer even though it is not considered the “correct way” to work this stitch.

 

 

Option 1: work a left edge stitch as “normal” by not yarning over, inserting your hook into the two loops, yo pull up a loop; then ch1 to get ready for your return pass, but also chain 1 again to get it up to height.  So… work a normal edge stitch but ch2 before doing the return pass.

Option 2: Yo, insert into edge stitch, yo pull up a loop, yo and pull thru two loops.  When you get ready to do your return pass, ch1.  I prefer Option 2 simply because it does not create a “gappy” side.

Written Instructions

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 TDCS, working an edge stitch with either option 1 or 2.

Row 1, Return Pass: Complete a normal return pass (see the introduction post, here)

Row 2 and onward: Complete the instructions for row 1 both forward and return passes.
