I have created two video tutorials which show you how to get started with Tunisian crochet.
Tunisian crochet uses an elongated crochet hook with a stopper on the end. It looks like a cross between a regular crochet hook and a knitting needle. The hook end is used to create the stitches, like in crochet, but the look of Tunisian crochet is more like knitting. Many people consider Tunisian crochet as a cross between knitting and crochet, as it certainly has characteristics of both crafts.
Each row of Tunisian crochet creates front and back vertical bars. These are manipulated to create each stitch.
In each row of Tunisian crochet there are two parts: the forward pass and the return. During the forward pass you work from right to left creating loops and keeping them on your hook. During the return you work from left to right working off these loops until one remains.
