    Stitch of the Week 10: Tunisian Double Stitch - Simple

    Hello everyone! It's "Stitch of the Week" #10 with the Tunisian Double Stitch - Simple.

    Video tutorials for the Double Stitch are available from The Crochet Crowd & Darlene Michaud.

    The Tunisian Double Stitch is another utility stitch to enhance basic stitches. It's made much the same as a traditional double crochet stitch with out closing the stitch. This technique adds height to the simple stitch, knit stitch, reverse stitch or any of the variations of these stitches in addition to texture and density. It creates a open fabric with lovely drape. Bonus - no curl!


    Written instructions:

    Foundation Row:
    • Create any number of chains.
    • (1) YO, insert your hook into the back bump of the third chain from the hook.
    • (2) yo and pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops .
    • Repeat steps 1&2 across the row. This is your "Forward Pass". Don't turn your work.
    • Yarn over and draw through one loop only. (Yarn over and draw through two loops.) Repeat () to the end. You should have one loop on your hook.

    I've come to the conclusion that collecting yarn, and using yarn are two entirely separate hobbies.

    I noticed my right side edge was very tight. As I noticed in the videos, I saw they both did a chain one before beginning to pick up bars on the forward pass. This made all the difference! My left side edge is still a little tight, but it should block out nicely. I used a large hook, as I wanted to see how it would look with some drape. This stitch would make a beautiful scarf - even the back side looks nice!

      Nice! The ch1 omission is my fault. Apologies. I have it on my chart, but forgot it in the written instructions. I'll get that corrected.
