Tunisian Headbands

 Here are some more Tunisian projects. I made these headbands using Tunisian crochet stitches in the round with a double ended crochet hook and two different colors so you can really see the effect of the different stitches.

 This one is the honeycomb stitch. This is the same stitch that I used to make the blue scarf in the previous post. It is made by alternating Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS) and Tunisian Purl Stitch.

  The next one is made using a Tunisian Rib Stitch. You make this pattern by alternating TSS and Twisted Tunisian Simple Stitch. To make the twisted one you enter your hook into the vertical bar from the opposite direction as you would normally do with TSS. This pushes the two stitches together making vertical rows as you can see  below.

  My last headband is made using a Tunisian Cross Stitch. To make this pattern you skip the first bar, work a TSS in the next one then come back to the first bar and work a TSS, doing this for every pair of stitches. This crosses the stitches as you can see below.

  I didn't know there were so many different things you can do with Tunisian Crochet. I'm still experimenting and learning new stitches.
