- How to crochet the Double Tunisian Simple stitch - 25 January 2020
The Double Tunisian Simple stitch is a perfect knit stitch for two-tones, in other words using two different coloured yarns, as it enhances the texture of the finished piece. As a matter of fact, the Double Tunisian Simple stitch is made up of loads of small spears that are interlaced with each other making the colour contrast even more evident in their harmonious pattern. This knit stitch is ideal for a blanket, a scarf or a beret.
We’ve chosen our Sierra yarn in the colours Gloss and Lace for the Double Tunisian Simple stitch. The outcome is a subtle yet effective ton sur ton.
Let’s get started.
How to do the Double Tunisian simple stitch
Note: you can start the work without the set-up round. If this is the case do the 1st round in the foundation chains, making sure you do the forward pass of the 1st round and the return pass of the 2nd round with the colour A, the return pass of the 14th round and the forward pass of the 2nd round with the colour B. Make the number of desired chains with colour A.
Forward pass: skip the last chain done, * insert the hook into the next chain, yarn over and come out of the chain leaving the loop on the hook *, repeat from * to * to the end of the round. Don’t turn the work over.
Return pass: with the colour B, yarn over and bind off 1 loop on the hook, * yarn over and bind off 2 loops together *, repeat from * to * to the end of the row. Don’t turn the work over.
Forward pass: with the colour B, chain 1, double crochet 1 into each following stitch, going into the vertical thread of the stitch, double crochet 1 in the edge stitch. Don’t turn the work over.
Return pass: with the colour A, as per the set-up round.
2 nd round
Forward pass: with the colour A, as per forward pass of the 1st round.
Return pass: with the colour B, as per the set-up round.
Repeat always from 1st round until you get the desired length.
Start with the part that comes before the first asterisk, repeat from * to * for all the round and finish off with the part that comes after the 2nd asterisk.
