Did you know that Tunisian crochet can be worked in the round, seamlessly? It's true! The secret: you need a double-ended crochet hook and a little bit of know-how, plus of course some yarn or fiber. A locking stitch marker is also helpful to have on hand. There are alternate versions of the "in the round" technique which utilize other types of hooks, sometimes a circular crochet hook and sometimes a Tunisian crochet hook with flexible extension at the end.

Clover has a vested interest in teaching you how to do this technique, as they manufacture double-ended Tunisian crochet hooks. I'm not sure whether to call their video a "tutorial" or an "infomercial;" it's a bit of both. Either way, it's a quality video; I learned how to work Tunisian crochet in the round by watching this video.
There are two versions of what is nearly the same video, an English version and a Japanese version. There are slight variations between the videos.
