  5. I have been searching for this stitch all night and half of today! I’ve made many blankets using this stitch but I couldn’t remember it for a baby boy blanket I”m starting today. I have a while/blue blended yarn that is going to look adorable. Thanks so much for having this stitch here on YouTube.com. You saved me today!

  6. Hi Teresa i just wanted to let you know that i managed to teach myself crochet by using your videos and now have made several baby blankets for neighbours and friends. I just used this stitch as a border for my latest creation and it looks great. Thank you very much for all your help and i will continue to use your videos in the future xxx

  7. If you want to make a shawl in that stitch make a chain of 60
    and and two more before you start. I’m using a pretty yarn
    called Tweed Stripes and the color is called Mixed Berries
    and another color to mix with is called Marble which is a
    grey and silver mix. The Mixed berries is a red and burgandy
    mix. It’s really pretty.

  8. You have helped me through some really tough times in my life. I found crochet, and you, later than some, but I LOVE it. You were the only one able to teach me. Thank you for that and keep up the good work. BTW i am making a “towel” out of this stitch to give as a housewarming gift. She is gonna flip.

  9. Really great instructions. I really appreciate the way you demostrate how to count the chain stitches to achieve the shells. Thanks so much, you have helped me so many times with stitches.

  10. I have a shawl that I couldn’t figure out what stitch pattern it was but I am sure this is it!!!! Thank you for sharing! Very cool stitch!

  11. Finally, I found someone who can teach me this stitch. It is so easy to follow. Thank you so much. I am so relieved. I can start complicated patterns now.

  13. @frecklespec Hello! The shawl in the opening is called a Mobius Shawl. I have a link to the free pattern on my website. Naztazia.com is the site. Hope this helps.

  14. @naztazia i started 4 years ago my mom taught me and I went to a fiber arts club back in high school there I learned knitting.

  15. @Guinepigsrock Hello! My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was 5 years old – so this year marks 31 years of crocheting for me 🙂

  16. I am going right down to Joanns and see if they have an hook and I sure do hope so . I want to try this right now! Thanks great video!

  17. @bjbear5103 Hiya! For afghans, you can use an afghan hook like in the video, and do 20-30 across. but then do 6 feet worth of rows. They then take these 6 or 7 long strips and connect them together either by sewing a whip stitch or doing some fancy chaining in between. Some just do squares. Additionally, you can get special circular afghan hooks. These are the regular long afghan hook but have a long fishing wire cable on the end. Amazon carries them – e.g. Silvalume Circular Crochet Hook 40″.

  18. i absolutely love the tunisian stitch! your video is very good too! just wondering-what hook or where would you find a hook long enough to make a decent sized afghan?

  19. @naztazia Thank you for your response. I’ve tried this stitch and I’m okay but I want to get better because I like the texture and the appearance.

    Thanks again!

  20. @CALACL2010 Thanks for the kindness and feedback. Indeed – I will be posting more videos in the very near future, including those other stitches.

  21. Wow Thanks… I have been SO frustrated trying to find a way to crochet, and this was the only video I actually had progress with! Thanks Soo! MuCH!!! Can you do a thurough tutorial on how to make those cute flowers? I have tryed, but I get so lost on the double crochet’s and all the crazy different stitches….

  23. @naztazia – you explained this so well, and so clearly. Thank you for posting your videos – they are the best I’ve seen.

  24. Indeed – my loops are looser mostly for ease in showing the stitch via online video & because I used a large size K hook. The blue/white/pink poncho that you may have seen near the beginning of the video (and the afghan at the end) has a much smaller stitch because I used a size F hook. There really is no wrong or right way as far as stitch size – both large and small are acceptable depending upon the look you want and the item you are crocheting.
