I'm itching to try tapestry crochet, but I'm confused as to use the tunisian stitch, or do it all in single crochet. Is there a huge difference?

I have completed projects in both stitches. The tunisian stitch has a better image, sharper. The single crochet still looks good, just not as sharp. The finished tunisian seems stiffer to me, could be cause I really don't like the stitch, even though I had hubby make me an extra long afghan hook. I do all my graph afghans in single crochet. I think it's just a matter of personal preference. I can finish a project in sc a lot faster than tunisian stitch!

I prefer sc. If you are making something in rows, it'll be fine. But if you are working in the round, like on a hat, the graphic will look like it leans slightly.
It just doesn't seem practical to me to do anything bigger than a scarf with tunisian crochet. And I also don't care for the feel of the stitch. Embarrassed
