How to Crochet: Tunisian Knit Stitch (tks)By Rachel Choi – 38 Comments
|Have you ever wanted your crochet to look like knitting? Well here is the stitch for you! The Tunisian knit stitch is really similar to the Tunisian Simple Stitch also known as the afghan stitch. Please check that tutorial first before attempting this one since I’ll be making lots of references to it.
The only difference between the Tunisian simple stitch and the Tunisian knit stitch is the location you insert your hook during the forward pass/row.
This tutorial is for both right and left handed people. For left handed pictures, roll your mouse over the image and it will change for you.
To begin the Tunisian knit stitch, complete the first row (steps 1 – 13) in the Tunisian Simple Stitch Tutorial.
To do the next row and every row after, insert your hook under the “vertical bar” and through the back of the work. This is the only things that makes the Tunisian knit stitch different from the Tunisian simple stitch.
Now yarn over and pull up a loop onto your hook as you normally would. Continue this for each stitch across to complete the forward pass.
Completing the reverse pass is the same as the reverse pass in Tunisian simple stitch. Just yarn over, pull though 1 loop on your hook, then yarn over and pull though 2 loops on your hook. Continue to yarn over and pull through 2 loops on your hook until there is only 1 loop left.
Remember, the only difference between the Tunisian simple stitch and the Tunisian knit stitch is the location you insert your hook during the forward pass/row, everything else is the same!
