Tunisian Knit Stitch Photo & Video Tutorial

With my first Tunisian Crochet pattern releasing soon, I wanted to get some tutorials out so you can practice and learn before the pattern releases. And I am really excited that we are branching out into Tunisian Crochet!

I get a lot of requests for Tunisian Crochet tutorials and patterns and I am finally delivering on those requests. Never enough time, am I right?

Have you tried Tunisian Crochet yet? If not, don’t worry – I will walk you through each step!

The Tunisian Knit stitch looks almost the same as the standard knit stitch. It is a very thick and dense stitch so it is perfect for cold weather wearables – hats, scarves and cardigans.

The Tunisian Knit stitch will curl heavily on the bottom and top edges of the fabric. You will need to block the fabric after finishing or work a heavy border around the edge to prevent curling. Crochet Kim has a fantastic informational post on preventing curling in Tunisian so head on over to find out more about it.
