    Stitch of the Week 11: Tunisian Griddle Stitch

    Hello everyone! It's "Stitch of the Week" #11 with the Tunisian Griddle Stitch

    A video tutorial for the Griddle Stitch is available from The Crochet Crowd

    The Tunisian Griddle Stitch is another combination pattern using the Simple Stitch (TSS) and the Double Stitch-Simple (TDS-S). It creates a highly textured, dense fabric. It's made much the same as the Lemon Peel stitch in traditional crochet. Another pattern that doesn't curl! Yay!


    Written instructions:

    Foundation Row:
    • Create an even number of chains
    • (1) Insert your hook into the second chain from the hook.
    • (2) Yarn over and pull up a loop. Leave that loop on your hook.
    • 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.

    Griddle Stitch
    • Row 1 - Forward pass. Skip first vertical bar directly beneath the loop on the hook, *insert the hook under the next vertical bar and pull up a loop, yo, insert the hook under the next vertical bar and pull up a loop, yo & pull through 2 loops*, repeat *-* to last stitch, yo, insert the hook under the 2 vertical bars of the last stitch and pull up a loop. Basic Return Pass
    • Row 2 - Forward pass. Skip first vertical bar directly beneath the loop on the hook, ch1, *yo, insert the hook under the next vertical bar and pull up a loop, yo & pull through 2 loops, insert the hook under the next vertical bar and pull up a loop, *, repeat *-* to last stitch, yo, insert the hook under the 2 vertical bars of the last stitch and pull up a loop, yo & pull through 2 loops. Basic Return Pass
    Repeat Rows 1 & 2 to desired length.


    Bind off in TSS.
    • Skip first vertical bar directly beneath the loop on the hook, *yo, insert the hook under the next vertical bar and pull through all loops*, repeat *-* to last stitch, yo, insert the hook under the 2 vertical bars of the last stitch and pull through all loops.
    • Chain 1, cut the yarn and pull through the loop to fasten off.

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

    I use the regular crochet version of this all the time so I'm looking forward to playing with the tunisian version.

    working on this now.

    TexasPurl your instructions are fantastic.
    But I wanted to also thank you for the youtube links. The ones you have chosen for us along the way are very helpful. I find the Crochet Crowd ones relaxing and easy to listen to as well as very helpful.
    Thank you.

      hereami I agree. I hope this Tunisian section stays here for a long time (forever) as it is handy to come back to if needed for the reason you describe. You don't have to sort through all kinds of things to find something that works. So again, thanks TexasPurl, we appreciate the time & effort you're putting into your 'exploration'.

    I added some griddle stitch to my full size tunisian stitch sampler afghan that is all scrap yarn. And then I added it to my baby blanket. And now I'm working on a pot holder. Safe to say I like this stitch.

      Oh yes, it looks very nice. So different with the 2 colors. It adds that bit of spice.

      I finished mine, however it's been raining and dreary for the past couple days, waiting for some sunshine to take pictures. I am also enjoying these blocks.

      The pieces you posted today are so pretty! I thought I was going to get organized, but didn't quite get there. Sooo tired still, and can't concentrate.

    How is everyone doing on their pieces this week? I am going to work on some from the weeks I didn't finish during my zoom meet. Hoping I can catch up before our next stitch comes!
    Knitting is happening here! ❤️

      We had the cold and ice last week but it's sunny and beautiful this week so hopefully you'll get the nice stuff next week.

    I am way behind, and my first square was horrible! Tried it again today, looks better, but still not quite right. The stitch is easy once you get going, I’ve enjoyed making it.
