Hi all! To continue my series of Tunisian Crochet posts, the last thing you'll need t know is how to cast off.
The first thing you want to do it cast on. Check out the post for casting on here!
Then after you work your Tunisian Stitches (whatever it may be), the last thing you need to do is to cast off.
To cast off, you will insert your hook into the first vertical bar as you have been doing and pull up a loop. Now, you want to pull through the loop on your hook as well. You no longer want to keep all the loops on your hook. This is similar to working a "Slip Stitch" in normal Crochet.
Here are some Tunisian Hooks available. I own all of these (except the aluminum ones). The Bamboo ones will warp if not stored flat. Mine were in a cup (standing up) and warped over time! My favorites are the Interchangeable sets. I like that the Denise interchangeable set come in larger sizes. Knitter's Pride has larger hooks but they are sold separately.
There are hooks that have a "Hook" on both ends for knitting with 2 colors at the same time. I haven't gotten into that just yet!
Here is a quick video for casting off. I will be working on different Tunisian stitches after the TSS & other basic stitches. No go make something!
