|tunisian crochet hook with cable and stopper|
There are different ways to create designs using tunisian crochet. One is with different stitches. There are really only a few different tunisian stitches to learn. See the link above for the different stitches used in tunisian crochet. I recommend once you learn the basics, to check out crochetkim.com and look through her tunisian crochet section. She also has hundreds of free patterns to look through-not just tunisian (and they're all very good!). She's one of my favorite designers.

*designs do look a bit tall and thin when worked in tunisian simple stitch. The stitch is taller than it is wide so it doesn't make a nice square like the graph square shows. I had to adjust some of my graphs to accommodate the nature of the stitch.
