Tunisian Crochet Abbreviations (you can click on links to review the “how to” for each stitch):

Tks – Tunisian Knit Stitch


Ch 30.

Set up row: Pull up through the back ridge of each ch across — 30 sts (Noted as the first row of circles).

Work pattern as charted above taking note of the following:

• when working your forward pass, the loop on your hook counts as the first stitch (indicated as a circle in the chart)
• the last stitch is made through the two end loops of row below (also indicated as a circle in the chart).
• a basic return pass should be used throughout (i.e., yo, draw through 1 loop, *yo, draw through 2 loops, rep from * across).
• Row 35 should be worked as a bind off row; work Trs bind off (Noted as the last row of circles).

KEY: Circle = first/last stitch; Color = Trs; White = Tks.

Block finished dishcloth if desired (-> How to Block Knit and Crochet Items).

      I’m left handed, and I can do this, so I would think so! Good luck!!

      All you would do is read the graph from left to right instead of right to left.

    I’ve only ever tried TSS so I’m looking forward to learning new tricks with my hook. Thank you

    I have been working furiously trying to learn this Tunision style of crocheting. I am pretty confident that I have all of the stitches down. Just sat down at my computer with my yarn, hook, and glasses, and I have come to a screeching halt. I do not know how to read charts!! I don’t know what the circles mean, or what the white and shaded blocks mean. I searched your blog for written directions, but could not find anything. Help!

      Hi Sandy 🙂 The white blocks are Tunisian knit stitch and the colored blocks are Tunisian reverse stitch. Here is the full key: Circle = first/last stitch; Color = Trs; White = Tks. Hope that helps!
