Tunisian crochet can be intimidating, but once you jump in, it's not so hard! And once you've got the basics, you might find yourself exploring new stitches - and the Tunisian Top Stitch, aka the Tunisian Bump Stitch, is a fun and easy variation to try!

I used the Tunisian Top Stitch/Bump Stitch to design the Top of the Tunisian Infinity Scarf, and hope to use it again in the future! I was playing around with Tunisian stitches and came up with this idea of going into the top bump - I think it creates a great looking, supremely drapey fabric!
But I couldn't find a record of this stitch anywhere, and asking other designers, they hadn't seen it either. So I needed to name it myself, and called it the Tunisian Top Stitch, abbreviating it as TTS. Then a commenter on the pattern told me she'd seen it one other place, called the Tunisian Bump Stitch, or TBS.
No matter what you call it, it's a fun stitch to make, and I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
