Tunisian Waves are super easy to make, all it takes is to combine stitches of different height (Tunisian Reverse Stitches and Tunisian Double Crochet Stitches) to build a wave pattern. This is a very simple technique and it looks best when made with 2 or more different colors!
There are a bunch of different Tunisian crochet hooks available for purchase. You can read about the hooks I use here. Because of the nature of Tunisian crochet stitches, I recommend using a hook that is at least 2 sizes larger than the recommended hook on the yarn.
You can find my stitch guide with all the abbreviations here.
Foundation Row: Make a chain (multiples of 6 + 2 stitches). Make the foundation row stitches in the back loops of the chain.
Row 1: fs, *3 trs, 3 trdcs; repeat from * until the end of the row, extls
Row 2: fs, tss across, ls
Row 3: ch 1, *3 trdcs, 3 trs; repeat from * until the end of the row, ls
Row 4: fs, tss across, ls
Rows 5: and after: Repeat rows 1 – 4.
Last row: fs, trs across, ls (Bind off). This row is the same as other rows except that you will make a slip stitch every time you pick up a loop on your hook. There will be no reverse pass for this row.
