How to Tunisian Simple Crochet
Tunisian crochet is an old favorite of mine. Not all crocheters enjoy it, or know how to do it, but those that do are able to make beautiful, fun, knit-like pieces. Tunisian stitches work up so quickly, and once you get into a rhythm you’ll love this stitch, too!

To start Tunisian Simple Crochet, you will:
1. Chain to desired length.
2. Pull up a loop in second chain from hook and in each chain to end. You will now have as many loops on your hook as you do stitches.
3. Yarn over and pull through one loop. Yarn over and pull through two loops. Yarn over and pull through two – repeat this sequence all the way to the end of the row.
4. Insert hook into first vertical bar from the previous row, pull up a loop. Pull up a loop in every vertical bar to end. In the last (end) stitch, go through both parts of the “v” of that stitch. You should now have as many loops on your hook as you do stitches.
5. Yarn over and pull through one loop. This is the side of the last stitch. Yarn over and pull through two loops. Yarn over and pull through two – all the way to the end of the row.
Continue alternating steps 4 & 5 until desired height is reached.
To fasten off/bind off:
Insert hook under first vertical bar. Slip stitch. Insert hook under next vertical bar. Slip stitch. Repeat to end. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
