Reaching Out, One Stitch At a Time

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 1

To kick off the CAL we’re going to begin with one of the basic stitches of tunisian crochet. It’s called the tunisian simple stitch (TSS), but it is also known by a few different names. Here are a few:

  • TSS – tunisian simple stitch
  • afghan simple stitch
  • tunisian basic stitch

Let’s begin…..
