Afghan or Tunisian Crochet – Knitting with a Crochet Hook

The beauty of this stitch is the textured knit-like fabric it creates. The Knit Stitch results in columns of inverted “V’s” so it really looks like knitting, but it’s all done with an Afghan or Tunisian crochet hook.

To work a Knit Stitch:

1. Cast on: *Insert hook between front vertical bar and back vertical bar to create the V, yo, pull through adding a loop to your hook; repeat from * across, ending by inserting hook under final 2 loops of chain stitch edge.

Note: Sometimes it can be a little confusing since the inverted “V” pattern is not evident in the row you are working. To keep track of the vertical bars, remember that you skip 2 vertical bars – back vertical bar of previous stitch and front vertical bar of next stitch – then insert the hook.

2. Cast-off: *Yo, pull through 2 loops on hook; repeat from * across row, ending with one loop on hook.

Return to regular crochet hook and bind off with a single crochet or slip stitch.
