It’s *New*Stitch *Sunday* ~ Lacy & Tunesian

Hello my lovely friends  ๐Ÿ’• Thanks for stopping by.

Today I’d like to show you two stitches that are great for blankets and scarves/shawls.

The first one apparently doesn’t have a name….from what I could find out it’s known as ‘simple and pretty’ ๐Ÿคฃ Maybe you know the “official” name? If you do, please let me know! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Okay…here is ‘simple and pretty’ ๐Ÿ˜

If you’d like to try it…here’s how 

Starting chain- multiple of 6 plus 3 

Row 1: (4 dc, 3 ch, 1 dc) all in 5th ch from the hook; 


*skip 4 ch, (4 dc, 3 ch, 1 ch) in 5th ch from the hook*; repeat * to * to the end of the row, dc in last ch 


Ch 3, turn 

Row 2:  (4 dc, 3 ch, 1 dc) in every 3-ch space across the row, 1 dc in top of turn-3-ch 


Repeat Row 2 until the desired length. 

Well, one thing is sure….it is ‘simple and pretty’ ๐Ÿ˜Š Right?! 

โœจThe second stitch is the ‘Tunesian (Afghan) Stitch โœจ

If you saw last week’s The Little Bag ~ Crochet & Go Post you know it already. But – in case you missed it…here you go 
1. Work your foundation chain with the required number of chains- plus 1

2. Turn your work around, insert your hook into the 2nd stitch from the hook…yarn over, pull backwards and leave the loop on the hook = 2 loops. Repeat to the end of the row. 

Don’t forget the very last one ๐Ÿค“

3. Ch 1, yo, pull the yarn through 2 loops from the hook – the ‘active one plus one. Keep going, 2 loops at a time to the end of the row. You now have one loop on your hook.

4. Place your hook under the first vertical bar, and pull the yarn through. 


Leave the loop on the hook, continue to the end of the row. 

And again, 1 ch, then combine 2 loops until you have one left. 

Repeat . There, you’ve perfected the ‘Tunesian Stitch’. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

If you – at any point- have problems, questions because the instructions are not clear, please leave me a comment or send me a message. I wasted a lot of time, because the first few patterns I came across were not very clear. On a happy note…. I might have created a new stitch ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

See….


This is what it’s supposed to look like 

That’s it for today. ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you enjoyed these stitches…next week I’ll show you the beautiful ‘Harlequin Stitch’ ….well, hopefully – gotta practice some more to make it presentable! ๐Ÿ˜

Let me know if this inspired you, and share your ideas and creations here. ๐Ÿค—

Until next time ๐Ÿ’•
