Tunisian Crochet Pattern 100412

by M. J. Joachim

Basic Tunisian Crochet rules apply to this pattern. You will be making a foundation chain, casting on loops and then casting them off your afghan hook. You will be working only on the front side of the fabric, without turning your piece.

Cast on:  Insert hook in desired space, yarn over, draw up loop

Cast off:  Yarn over, draw through loop or loops indicated

Foundation Chain:  Make an even number of chain stitches (+1 more chain)

Step 1:  Insert hook and draw up a loop in 2nd chain from hook

Step 2:  Skip next chain, insert hook and draw up a loop in next chain.

[Repeat Step 2 across row, ending by drawing up a loop in last chain.]

Step 3:  Cast off 1 loop (yarn over, draw through loop or loops indicated in pattern) – this creates a firm edge; cast off 2 loops

Step 4:  Chain 1 (where chain was skipped in previous row); cast off 2 loops

[Repeat Step 4 across row, ending with chain 1 and casting off last 2 loops on hook, so that 1 loop remains on hook.]

Step 5:  Skip vertical bar; insert hook in next horizontal bar, yarn over, draw up a loop (cast on)

Step 6:  Skip next horizontal bar, cast on loop by inserting hook in next horizontal bar (directly left of next vertical bar)

[Repeat Step 6 across row, finishing row by casting on loop from last stitch in previous row.]

Repeat Steps 3 – 6 for pattern
