TUNISIAN REVERSE STITCH

December 18, 2020

 

Hello Everyone & Welcome Back!


The Tunisian Reverse Stitch (TRS) will be the last basic Tunisian stitch we'll be covering. The majority of all Tunisian Crochet work is based on these 5 basic stitches. TSS, TPS, TKS, TFS & TRS. Using combinations of these basic stitches will create beautiful fabrics for a whole host of projects. 

TRS is visually similar to TPS, though it creates a more substantial texture by sitting higher on the fabric. TRS can give your project definition whether as a border or with color changes to create contrast. It also combats curling when incorporated with the heavy curling stitches. 

TRS is made in reverse of TSS by inserting the hook through the back vertical bar with the yarn in the back.

A video tutorial for TRS is available from CROCHETKIM or from MODE BESPOKE.




BASIC FOUNDATION ROW

  • Create a chain with any number of stitches.
  • (1) Insert the hook into the back bump of the 2nd chain from the hook.
  • (2) Yarn over and pull the yarn through to create a loop on the hook. 
  • Keeping all the loop on the hook, repeat steps 1 & 2 above to the end of the chain. This is the "Forward Pass". Don't turn your work.
  • Basic Return Pass - Yarn over and draw the hook through one loop only, *Yarn over and draw through 2 loops*, repeat *-* to the end. You should have one loop remaining on the hook.

TRS

  • Skip first vertical bar directly beneath the loop on the hook, insert your hook, from right to left, through the back vertical bar of the next stitch, draw up a loop. Continue pulling up loops in this manner until you reach the last stitch, TSS in the last stitch.

  • Basic Return Pass - 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.

Continue these two steps until desired length.

BIND OFF ROW

Bind off in pattern: meaning to create the last, finishing row using the same stitches or combination of stitches the pattern calls for in the next row and closing those stitches as you work across. Thereby eliminating the return pass of the final row.

For this example, Bind Off in TRS:

  • Ch1, skip first vertical bar directly beneath the loop on the hook, insert your hook, from right to left, through the back vertical bar of the next stitch, draw up a loop. Continue pulling through the loop on the hook. Repeat across the row to the last stitch.
  • Last stitch - insert your hook under both vertical bars of the last stitch and finish the slip stitch. Ch 1, cut the yarn and pull through the loop to fasten off.
