Book-Tunisian Crochet Stitch Guide

Tunisian stocking stitch, sometimes referred to as  knit stitch, is a common variation on the basic Tunisian or Afghan crochet stitch. It looks like rows of crocheted Vs nesting in the row below. As with any kind of Afghan stitch, you begin Tunisian stocking stitch with a foundation row made of basic Tunisian crochet stitches.

The Tunisian/Afghan Crochet Hook- this is longer than the standard crochet hook and is rather like a knitting needle with a hook at one end. The overall length of the hook determines the maximum width of the fabric.
