  • It does not make any difference where you put your hook through the chain. You can go through one loop or both loops. The outcome will be the same.

  • I plan on making a blanket with this. Would using 150 stitch be okay for making a blanket? And how much yarn would I need?

  • i tried this and it came out quite good
    thank you this is like the first crotchet video that is useful to me
    gonna start watching more of your your videos

  • Thanks for helping me remember this stitch. The end product can easily be cross-stitched. Several years ago I cross-stitched a zebra swallowtail butterfly on a finished square.thanks again.

  • I bought this curious needle at a yard sale , not sure what it was . It was metal , long and looked like a straight knitting needle only it had the hook on the end of a crochet hook !?! NOW I know what I bought after watching this ! 🙂

  • When making a larger afghan , is there a specific longer crochet hook or tool your supposed to use….i have a pattern thats 150 stitches, and that wont fit on my 6 in hook….still learning!!! please help 🙂

  • thank you for your videos. I've been trying to transition from knitting to crocheting for years and have never quite figured it out.

  • Great video, My mom and uncle taught me years ago how to knit and crochet. I haven't done it in years though so thanks for the refresher.
    PS. My wife calls me "Martha" because I'm always doing crafts and stereotypical "woman crafts/hobbies"… i'm certainly not your typical military member… haha

  • At the beginning of the video you are using a 6" crochet hook with what looks like a blue transparent soft ripple tube over the hook. I would love to know where you got this and what they call it. I am developing arthritis in my hands and feel this would make it easier to hold the hook. Thank you. Enjoyed and appreciate your video.

  • The tube is a pencil grip purchased from an office supply store. The pencil grips work alone over the larger hooks. For the smaller hooks, I use the Flex Wrap medical tape found at Walgreen's or CVS.

  • Very clear explanations and filming, thank you.
    The crochet needles being quite short and the first pass leave the hoops on the hook, how can you do widths more than the 25 you have done as would be for the front or back of a sweater?
    Many thanks.

  • I like this but I have a question. How many of a chain do I need to make for a full size bed? And what hook should I use?

  • Hi, thanks for sharing this little tutorial; it's been a very long time since I've done the Tunisian afghan stitch, so this was a nice refresher. 🙂 Btw, I LOVE the polish on your nails–what's it called and who makes it?? Thanks!!!

  • This is awesome!! I am using your video to crochet my first blanket!! Thanks a million for posting your video!!

  • When you started to show the second pass you spoke of, why did you pull through only 1 stitch in the beginning and then 2 loops thereafter?

  • I love all of your videos. You make it so easy to understand and see clearly. I THOUGHT I knew how to crochet before, but I certainly do a better job after learning from you. Thank you!

  • I'm loving this video, I can't make up my mind on which one I want to make, this one or double stitch afghan. I'm starting one today. Love it ;>

  • Thank you for this! I learned how to crochet from your videos 2 years ago, now I have my own small crochet business! Now I can say I know how to do this stitch too!! 🙂

  • I like your videos because you take your time and show "every step" in slow motion, leaving out nothing. I learned the basics years ago as a child but never finished learning. So now I follow your videos to learn all those things I didn't learn then. Thanks for making it so easy f or this ole girl.

  • This tutorial will show the basics on making the Tunisian Crochet or Afghan Stitch.

  • I love your videos they are amazing I am twelve and I know practically every stitch but now that I have watched this I now know how to do this stitch !!!!!!!!:)

  • I do this stitch with a Cro-Hook, which is a double ended crochet hook…I use two skeins of yarn at the same time and cast on like knitting….I learned it from watching a woman at the Fair for 10 minutes when I was 16 yrs old 🙂

  • What I really enjoy about your video was that you did not have chips nails and you had a black background and there were no distractions I believe it's very important to focus mainly on what you are teaching so therefore having a black background there are no distractions and your nails look very nice means a lot to me and you are a very good teacher thank you for posting this video

  • I love your tutorials! I have only been crocheting for a little over a week. I know this is the Afghan Tunisian stitch but I decided to make a cowl scarf with this stitch. It's nice and heavy. Thank you for making these educational videos.

  • Teresa, I'm trying to make this blanket, and the pattern says: make a popcorn (ch3, yo hook and draw thru 2 loops.) Popcorn made. This is an afghan stitched blanket, and the popcorn is totally confusing to me. Can you help me? It is from the Diamond Popcorn Panel crocheted bordered diamonds pattern a friend sent to me.

  • i havent been able to find one single tutorial on how to create a complete afghan using the tunisian needle, the needle isnt wide enough to make a whole afghan. do you have a tutorial vid on creating the whole afghan? Id like to see it, ty

  • May I second the comment on the slow speed of the video! I found it painfully slow, the slow motion segment was too long and the repetitive counting and comments were driving me nuts. Had to shut off the audio!

  • I think for a tutorial a chain of 25 might be too long, 10 would be a good length but I love the tip on minimizing the curl by doing a row of single crochet. Thank you.

  • Roughly how wide is the 25-stitch swatch you were making in TSS with the I hook?  The first projects I'd like to do in Tunisian crochet would be dishcloths and/or small pet blankets.  Dishcloths I can find patterns for; however, pet blankets I would probably have to adapt down from baby blanket-size patterns, and I don't yet have a good idea of how many fewer chain stitches to start with to make something pet-blanket-size (14"x14" and 24"x24" are 2 sizes often requested by animal shelters participating in the Snuggles Project).  And of course the number of starting chains to get something of a certain width would vary depending on the hook size, too.  (As a comparison, I often make square pet blankets worked in the round (a denser variant of the "granny square") with a 10mm/N hook and 2 strands of worsted-weight yarn held together, and find that those squares "grow" 2" with each round, but I'd have to do some serious number crunching to work out how long a starting chain I'd need to get something the same width worked straight across.)

  • how do you make this longer or is there a way to add to what you've shown to make the afghan wider? sorry I am very much a beginner. I know sc, dc and half dc stitches only so far.

  • absolutely loved your video. the speed was perfect for learning a new stitch. thanks to you I finally have a handle on how to do the Tunisian stitch. keep up the terrific work.

  • ok with making a afghan tunisian crochet stitch please help just started this today
    how do I make a Baby Blanket or a lapghan

  • I'm glad I found your tutorial it's perfect for beginners to this. Bought my hook yesterday, and cannot wait to try this out. Thanks for your help and time! Great tutorial. Have a great day ☺

  • Hi i was wondering if you can help me please can you tell me whare you got you`re crocghet hooks from please
