In the latest issue of Crochet Fantasy they have several items that are made using this stitch. I do have the hook needed to do this. I'm wondering if someone can tell me how difficult this is... It looks rather complicated but maybe it is easy... Just wondering!

The only Tunisian I've tried is the simple stitch (TSS) and I found it easy but slooooooow. My edges were curly too, which bugged me.

 

I'd like to try some more when I have more time to spend, I've seen some awesome things made with it.

yes i do...do u know how to do that ? :hook

 

I'll share with you some links that I found very helpful in teaching myself Tunesian (Afghan) Stitch:

http://home.comcast.net/~crochet_cindy/tutorial/afghan.htm

 

http://www.stitchguide.com/stitches/crochet/stitch_pages/cro_afghanstitch.html

 

The "Crochet for Dummies" book also has a very helpful section on this stitch.

 

I love to use this technique for graphed images :) I made a Winnie the Pooh afghan and a Green Bay Packers pillow (front, back) with it.
