Afghan Crochet

The basic Afghan crochet stitch produces work which resembles a piece of knitting in that the finished article has quite a dense finish. This technique is also called Tunisian crochet.

In order to do Afghan stitch you will need an Afghan crochet hook which is a special long hook with a stopper on the end. This makes it look like a knitting needle with a hook! This because in this type of work you have to make a whole row of stitches on the hook before working back across them.
