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.

The following links will teach you everything else you need to know.

    Afghan Stitch in the Round Video and Resources at the Clover Family of Websites

    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.

    In these videos, the demonstrator shows you how to work afghan stitch in the round, and also shows a variety of different ideas for cute projects you can make -- hats, bags, wrist warmers, socks and more.

    You can find additional resources on Clover's English-language website.
