"I simply love when you can use a simple crochet stitch and put a twist on it. This creates a beautiful new stitch that looks so much different by just changing a small thing. That is exactly what the Tunisian crochet cross stitch is. Simply put, you work two Tunisian simple stitches but crossed over. It is a super simple technique suitable for beginners. I have used this beautifully textured stitch for a simple afghan block. It would look lovely as part of a Tunisian stitch sampler blanket or cushion cover. You can also make this square with a 100% cotton yarn and use it as a washcloth or a facecloth."
