Tunisian SC Bind Off

When going a tunisian project you need to do a finishing row, otherwise will have gaps in your between your stitches and your work may look like this…….

Here is how to do a sc bind off.  (for those that know how to crochet it is similar to a regular sc)

1)  insert hook behind next vertical bar

2)  yo, pull up a loop 

3)  yo, pull through both loops on hook  repeat

4)  insert hook through both loops of last stitch.

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Finishing Row

When going a tunisian project you need to do a finishing row, otherwise will have gaps in your between your stitches and your work may look like this…….

We’re going to be using a sc bind off to finish the scarf.  (for those that know how to crochet it is similar to a regular sc)

Finishing row:  skip 1st vertical bar, * insert hook behind next vertical bar (see fig.1), yo, pull up a loop (see fig.2), yo, pull through both loops on hook (see fig.3), repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch.

Fig.1 – insert hook behind next vertical bar

Fig.2 – yo, pull up a loop

Fig.3 – yo, pull through both loops on hook

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 12

This is going to be the last section of the CAL.  If you’d like the scarf to be longer you can just repeat any/all of the sections we’ve done.  I will do a separate post on how to end your tunisian project.  When you are done you will probably want to block your scarf so that all sections are exactly the same width.

Here is a lattice pattern, which is made by crossing two stitches.  I really like the look of this, and think it would make a great project on its own.

 

Section 12 –  Lattice Pattern

 

TSS = insert hook behind next vertical bar, yo, pull up a loop (for tutorial see section 1 of scarf)

 

Row 127:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 128:  skip 1st vertical bar, * skip next vertical bar, draw up a loop in next vertical bar (see fig.1), draw up a loop in skipped vertical bar (see fig.2), repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch (see fig.3). (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 11

The tunisian honeycomb stitch is a combination of TSS & TPS stitches alternatively worked across the row.

 

Section 11 –  Honeycomb Stitch

 

TSS = insert hook behind next vertical bar, yo, pull up a loop (section 1 of scarf)

TPS = move yarn in front of hook, insert hook behind next vertical bar, move yarn to back of hook, yo, pull up a loop (section 2 of scarf)

 

Row 115:  skip 1st two vertical bars, * TSS in next st, TPS in next st, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch (see fig.1). (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 116:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TPS in TSS of previous row, TSS in TPS of previous row, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 117:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in TPS of previous row, TPS in TSS of previous row, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 118 – 126:  Repeat Row 116 & 117.

Tunisian Purl Stitch – TPS

The tunisian purl stitch (TPS) it is also known as just the purl stitch. If you compare it to the knit purl stitch they look very similar.

1)  skip 1st vertical bar (directly below loop on hook), * bring yarn in front of work/hook,

2)  working behind yarn insert hook under next vertical bar,

3)  wrap yarn to back of hook,

4)  yo,

 

5)  pull up a loop,

6)  repeat from * across to last bar, insert hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.
