Tunisian Knit Stitch

The Tunisian Stockinette, or Knit, Stitch bears a strong resemblance to the stockinette stitch in knitting, hence its name.
The abbreviation for Tunisian Knit Stitch is Tks.

Start with a chain, pick up a loop in each chain across, and cast off in the usual manner:
YO, pull through 1 loop,
YO, pull through 2 loops across the row until only 1 loop remains.

Next and every Forward row:
Insert hook between the front and back vertical loop of each stitch, YO, pull loop through.
The final stitch:
Insert hook under both loops of the stitch.
Work Return Row in the usual manner.

The image shows the first 6 stitches cast on and the hook inserted under the loops of the last stitch.

This next image is a close up of the vertical loops the hook is inserted between. The arrows point to the 'back' loop.

Finishing:
Bind Off with Tunisian Simple Stitch Bind Off.

Alternate bind off:
Bind Off with knit stitches and finish each stitch with a single crochet instead of a slip stitch.

The image shows a knit bind off on the right side of the sample and the normal Tss bind off on the left.
