To learn more about how to make the Tunisian stitches in this pattern, take a look at the following stitch descriptions:

Basic Foundation Row

Tks: Tunisian Knit Stitch

Tps: Tunisian Purl Stitch

The first stitch of the row tends to be tall and loose, while the last tends to be tight and short.

To keep the right and left edges of work even, give a tug to the loop on the hook at the beginning of each row to tighten it slightly.

At the end of the forward pass, draw the last loop up high to loosen it.

Purl stitches also can vary in tension.

Loose stitches are easy to tighten up by giving a tug on working yarn after completing each stitch.

Experiment with tighter and looser stitches on a swatch to determine what looks best.

Instructions are for forward pass; work basic return pass unless otherwise directed.

Foundation Row: Work basic foundation row.
