Here's a swatch of Tunisian crochet; you're looking at the front of the fabric. This crochet stitch is known as the "Tunisian Simple Stitch;" it is also called "afghan stitch." If you want to learn how to do this stitch, see our free afghan stitch instructions.

This swatch was made using stripes of Lion Brand Homespun yarn in the colors "Baroque" and "Tudor."

This fabric almost has a woven appearance, although it is definitely crocheted. The unique texture of the yarn contributes to the "handwoven" effect.
