Tunisian Knit Stitch (tks)

Tunisian crochet differs from conventional crochet in several ways. In Tunisian, loops for several stitches remain on the hook at one time, as opposed to conventional crochet where the loop for only one stitch is on the hook at a time. Also, the piece is not turned at the end of a row, so the right side is always facing. To begin, you start with a base row and each row thereafter is a two-step process, known as the forward pass and reverse pass. As a general rule for Tunisian crochet, the reverse pass is worked exactly the same for any stitch, the forward pass is what defines the variations between Tunisian crochet stitches.

Today we're going to show you how to work the Tunisian knit stitch:

Tks forward pass (Fwp): Skip first vertical bars, with yarn in back, *insert hook between next vertical bars under horizontal strands (Figure 1), yarn over and pull up loop, leave loop on hook; repeat from * to end, ending with 1 loop on hook; return pass.

Return pass (RetP): Yarn over and draw loop through first loop on hook, *yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook: repeat from * across (Figure 2), ending with 1 loop on hook.
