For tutorial purposes, I have used Bernat Mega Bulky Yarn with a very large Tunisian Afghan Hook to demonstrate exactly where the hook is going in the project.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

      The article is updated with an easy to find Blue Download to redirect you to a pattern where the Tunisian Simple Stitch is written out. Hopefully, that helps you. It may take 2 hours before you see it on the public side. Refresh your CACHE to force it to regenerate.

    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.

    1. Thank you so much for your constructive feedback. I appreciate you going into detail to illustrate what you are speaking about. I certainly appreciate it.

        There isn’t a print out for this stitch. I have tried 3 times, this being the 4th. I love your videos but I need a print out for a car trip. Thanks
