I can't knit but I like the stretch and texture of knitting. I recently picked up the book The New Crochet Dictionary. It's not "new." The book was published in the 80s, but it has loads of techniques, like tunisian crochet. I found out about the tunisian knit stitch (tks) from the book, but because the photos are somewhat blurry and in black and white, I had to supplement with web tutorials.

I started this hat with the tunisian simple stitch and then tks, but I didn't work in the round (that's the next technique I will have to learn).


Using a regular hook, I joined the swatch with slip stitches, and then closed the top with single crochet (sc) and  sc decrease.


To finish, the brim is one round of sc.

I had to look twice to make sure it was not knit!  Fantastic!  How great that you are learning and venturing out...learning new stitches and how to use them is fun and look at your cute hat!!! Cheesy

I love the top view!

Nicely done! I was thinking of making a Tunisian crochet hat, but I really want to try to do one in the round, so when you figure it out, let me know Smiley

GREAT hat! I think I will have to give this a try, I've tried samples of the TKS so know the basics but have never done anything productive with it. Your hat really dos look knitted.
