Tunisian Crochet Finishing Techniques

by M. J. Joachim

One of the most common ways to finish Tunisian crochet projects is to single crochet across the top. I’ve used this method quite a bit, and it works perfectly well, creating a neatly woven edge. 

However, there is another way. For those familiar with knitting, this might be an “aha” moment. 

Step 1:  Insert hook in stitch as if to cast on a loop

Step 2:  Yarn over, draw through all loops on hook, so that only 1 loop remains on your hook
[Repeat Steps 1 and 2 across row]
Note:  You can use whatever Tunisian stitch you used in your project, to maintain consistency in your pattern. You might also choose to use any other Tunisian stitch you’d like, allowing your edge to be a distinct part of your piece.
That’s all for now, good people! Thanks for visiting the Lots of Crochet Stitches blog!
