    I have been knitting and crocheting for at least 60 of my 65 years on this earth. I am sorry to break your bubble…but what you call “Tunisian stitch” is actually a stitch called “Afghan stitch”. I have some of your pattern books and you all call it “Tunisian stitch”. The actual “Tunisian stitch” is done with a “fro-hook” which is a long hook with a hook at each end. The pattern consists of the same two rows as you’re using for what you call Tunisian stitch. What changes is that you work with 2 balls of wool, it can be a contrasting colour or not. You also turn your work around. To make it easier for you to understand, go to Youtube and type in “Cro-hooking”. It shows it better than I can explain it. If you wish, I can send you a picture of a jacket I made for myself last fall. You would have to explain to me how to send it.
