How to Crochet the Tunisian Stitch:
Tunisian Simple Stitch (Tss): One row of Tunisian simple stitch is worked in two steps and using the front post of your work as follows, with yarn behind your work:
-Forward Pass (Step 1): Skip the first vertical bar; *insert hook under next vertical bar, yarn over and draw up a loop; repeat from * across.
-Return Pass (Step 2): Yarn over and draw through one loop on your hook; *yarn over and draw through 2 loops on your hook; repeat from * until only one loop remains on hook (one row of Tss complete).
Tunisian Knit Stitch (Tks): One row of Tunisian knit stitch is worked quite similarly to the Tss, except that you use the space under the vertical bar, or the space where you would normally insert your hook for a standard crochet stitch. The reverse pass is the same.

For me, the tight stitches are the point of Tunisian crochet. I recently started the vintage Rose Afghan, and will cross stitch over it, so the tighter the better. I just hope that blocking it will fix the curling. For more relaxed stitches, I would use traditional crochet.

Love the video tutorial but I do highly suggest a tunisian hook at LEAST 2 - 3 sizes called for by the yarn label due to the fact the stitches already curl the work the larger hook can help just a wee bit with the curl, as well as make the stitches look more relaxed.
