[SIZE=16px]Hello everyone! We’re making with the Tunisian Reverse Stitch today!
The Tunisian Reverse Stitch (TRS) is visually similar to TPS (Tunisian Purl Stitch), though it creates a more substantial texture by sitting higher on the fabric. Using the TRS can give your project definition whether as a border or with color changes to create contrast. TRS combats curling when incorporated with many of the heavy curling stitches.
TRS is made in reverse of TSS, by inserting the hook through the back vertical bar with the yarn in back.[/SIZE] [HR][/HR][SIZE=16px]Written instructions for TRS:
Begin this & nearly all Tunisian projects with a Foundation Row:[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px]Create a chain (later we'll explore different cast ons)[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px](1) Insert your hook into the back bump of the second chain from the hook.[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px](2) Yarn over and pull up a loop. Leave that loop on your hook.[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px]Repeat steps 1&2 across the row. This is your "Forward Pass". Don't turn your work.[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px]Experiment with one of the alternative casts on from this post: [B]Cast On Methods[/B][/SIZE][SIZE=16px].[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px]Yarn over and draw through one loop only. (Yarn over and draw through two loops.) Repeat () to the end. You should have one loop on your hook.[/SIZE]
TRS with a single ended hook. Single Row Repeat[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px]Skip first vertical bar directly beneath the loop on the hook, insert your hook, from right to left, through the next back vertical bar, draw up a loop. Continue pulling up loops in this manner until you reach the last stitch, TSS in the last stitch.[/SIZE]
Continue making Forward & Return passes to your desired length.
Bind off row.
There are only a few times when the bind off isn’t necessary. It typically isn’t needed for most lace designs since that would close up an otherwise lacy project.[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px]Binding off starts just as you would any other row. Insert your hook as you would for TRS.[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px]Yarn over and pull up a loop. Continue pulling through the loop on the hook. You're only doing a slip stitch, just like any other slip stitch in regular crochet. Repeat across the row to the last stitch.[/SIZE]
- [SIZE=16px]Last stitch - insert your hook under both vertical bars of the last stitch (it should look like a v on the outer edge of the work) and finish the slip stitch. Chain 1, cut the yarn and pull through the loop to fasten off.[/SIZE]
