Tunisian Bar Stitch (Tbs)

⇐ Back to Basic Stitches

 This stitch is worked just like the full stitch, accept that it goes through the horizontal bars instead of under them. It looks a lot like the Simple Stitch but you can see the background is different and the stitches are scattered instead of centered.


Instructions:

To begin: Chain any number to length desired.

Foundation: Row one forward: Insert hook into first chain space from hook. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Keeping loop on hook * insert into next, yarn over and pull up a loop. Repeat from * keeping all loops on hook. Row one return: Yarn over and pull back through one loop. * Yarn over and pull through two loops. Repeat from * until one loop remains on hook.

Stitch: Row two forward: Skip first vertical bar closest to hook. * Insert hook between the two horizontal bars of next, from front to back through the fabric. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Repeat from * to last. Pull up a loop from the edge. Row two return: Yarn over and pull back through one loop. * Yarn over and pull through two loops. Repeat from * until one loop remains on hook.

Repeat row two for pattern.
