I've wondered how to do this ever since I heard of it... I've crocheted since I was nine, and in the 40 years that followed, no one ever did this! It's so easy, how could I not know this? lol THANK YOU!!!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I'm always looking for ways to create my crochet crafts better...Can't wait to practice and master this technique...

So cool. You did a great job. A lot of these videos are done so fast or not close up like you did & you showed the steps clearly more than once so I could follow. Can't wait to try it on something

I have a hearing problem and could benefit from the closed captions, however, the cc has litttle or nothing to do with the videos. they are a joke

This far and away the BEST explanation I have ever seen of this stitch. I have watched two or three other videos and read a dozen sets of instructions. Great Job to Mikey and Connie. Thanks BTW to the person wanting printed instructions......just search on Google, there are a dozen places to get this in print

Is there a way to start the Tunisian stitch with a chainless foundation?
