Tunisian Crochet Tutorial – Yarn Over 2

While searching for different stitches in Tunisian crochet, I stumbled upon this one which I found very interesting. It uses a yarn over to create a beautiful pattern. It and can be built by lining up the yarn overs on top of one another or by staggering them. This tutorial is about yarning over 2 stitches but this technique can be used for 3 or more stitches as well.

The hook

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.

  1. Dear Arunima – this is very coincidental ! I recently developed a ‘new’ way of making a Tunisian stitch: see https://wp.me/p6zYMn-51b.
    This is the first time I’ve ever been torn between the front and the back of a stitch !
    See for yourself, yes ?
    I’ve looked and looked throughout the Web, but haven’t found any other examples of this arrangement (although I doubt VERY MUCH I’m the first person to have thought of making it).
    Have a go and show me yours ! ๐Ÿ˜€
