Tunisian Crochet Stitches


by M. J. Joachim

Tunisian crochet is an old style of crochet that uses a long crochet hook – one about twice as long as a traditional hook. Whereas traditional crochet makes one stitch at a time, Tunisian crochet cast loops on and off the long hook, commonly referred to as an afghan hook, creating rows of stitches similar to how one does when knitting.

Along with the afghan hook, Tunisian employs cro-hooks to make beautiful fabrics. Afghan hooks have only one hook on the end, while cro-hooks have a hook on either end. To see the difference more clearly, check out these two links:
