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.
