Linked Crochet Stitch - Tunisian

This is a fun stitch to work with. If you are looking for an afghan that is nice and solid with no holes, this stitch may be what you are looking for. It has a nice texture change for each row. It reminds me of a basketweave, just a different variation. The stitches can be made as long as you want to make them. I made a headband out if it and I love it.

  1. Teresa, thank you! thank you! thank you! I loved this tutorial. I am always looking for new stitches to learn in Tunisian and this one is a LOT of fun. I have been using it to make a scarf this morning in red sport weight. I think it will make a nice Christmas scarf.

  2. Thank you Theresa. Will you be doing a written tutorial for 6this stitch. I know a lot of people are visual learners and although I can learn this way I don't always remember later how to do the stitch. Or do you know where there is a tutorial to this stitch. Thank you again.

  10. I have several Tunisian Crochet hooks in my collection, they are much longer than a regular crochet hook and have a bobble on the end like a knitting needle to stop the stitches falling off. The bobble and the long hook means it is possible to make some quite wide pieces. 20mumble years ago I was fascinated with this method of crochet and made cushion covers, some of which I applied cross-stitch patterns to.
    Recently I picked up these tunisian hooks (is that what they are called?) and tried to use them but found the long hooks difficult to manipulate so I have returned to regular hooks and am extending my knowledge through your blog and videos. So much to learn, so much wool to transform into something wonderful. Thank you.
