Tunisian Knit Stitch (TKS)

The Tunisian Knit Stitch creates a beautiful, thick, knitted-like fabric. 
This stitch has a tendency to curl, and often requires blocking.
Before starting to read this tutorial, make sure you have read the article on the Tunisian Foundation Row here. Every Tunisian stitch begins with the same foundation row.

THE TUNISIAN KNIT STITCH

Forward Pass (FwP):

Skip the first vertical bar (your first loop already being on your hook), and insert your hook between the front and back vertical bars of your stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop that you will keep on your hook.
Continue picking up loops like this until you reach the last stitch. Insert your hook under the last vertical bar, and under the bar directly behind it, as shown in the picture below.
Yarn over, and pull up a loop, you just made your end stitch!
Note: the last stitch of your row, often referred to as end stitch, is alway worked the same, no matter the stitch pattern.

Return Pass (FwP):

The return pass is exactly the same as the Tunisian Simple Stitch, we simply drop loops off the hook two by two. 
Yarn over and pull through the next 2 loops on your hook until there is only one loop remaining on your hook.
