  Tunisian crochet
Tunisian crochet, also known as Afghan crocket, uses an elongated hook with a stopper on the handle end, called an afghan hook.
In afghan crochet, each row is worked in two halves: the first half is worked from right to left and the second half from left to right.
After the starting chain is completed, the first row is worked by inserting the hook in the chain, pulling a loop from the free end of the yarn, and inserting the hook in the next chain without working the loop off the hook.

 Tunisian Crochet Tutorials
Tunisian crochet is considered by many to be a cross between knitting and crochet.
Tunisian crochet is typically worked on a long hook with a stopper on the end - similar to a knitting needle that also has a stopper on the end so that the stitches held on the tool do not fall off.
Tunisian crochet is different from the standard form of crochet in that each row is worked in 2 distinct passes: the "forward" pass, in which loops are worked onto the hook, and the "reverse" pass in which the loops are worked back off the hook.

 Knitter's Review Forums - Tunisian Crochet???
Tunisian crochet was used quite a bit in the mid 1800's with many different stitches, such as the wave stitch, where you pick up the horizontal bar of the next stitch rather than the vertical bar.
Posted - 03/17/2007 : 11:09:24 AM Basically, yes, afghan and Tunisian crochet are the same except the nineteenth century Tunisian crochet that I have studied has several variations on stitches, such as the wave stitch and double Gobelin, while I have not seen modern afghan stitch as anything other than the "basic" stitch.

 CRAFTS : Other : Tunisian Crochet : DIY Network
Tunisian crochet (sometimes referred to as afghan crochet, cro-knit, knit-crochet or tricot) is worked on a hook that is longer than a regular crochet hook.
Made from metal, plastic and wood, the hooks are primarily available in sizes D-U. Tunisian crochet is very easy to learn; it uses less yarn than regular crocheting and provides a look that is at times similar to knitting or weaving.
For larger projects, extended Tunisian hooks are used; these hooks have a cable extension that allows more stitches to be worked in the width of the project.

 Crochet Stitch: Tunisian Intarsia
Many (if not all!) of the tunisian crochet stitches can be worked using the intarsia method.
You can use any knitting chart for Tunisian intarsia crochet as the proportions are about the same as knit stitches, but you will have to turn the chart on it's side because tunisian crochet stitches are taller than they are wide, and knitting stitches are wider than they are tall.
Always reading your chart from right to left, repeat these two rows to form the afghan stitch, picking up the next row of loops in the vertical thread of the stitches formed by the previous two rows, and remembering to always pick up your new colour from underneath the old colour.

One of the key reasons most crocheters avoid some projects that have a lot of pieces to join, or avoid creating certain complicated fashions, is that the crocheter is not satisfied with the way her projects look after they have been joined.

 Knitter's Review Forums - tunisian crochet
You basically crochet a foundation row, and then pick up stitches from right to left across it (that's what the cable is for -- they end up sitting on the cable just like picking up stitches with a circ), and then work back from left to right through them, hooking them together side-to-side.
If you do a google search on "tunisian crochet", you'll get a ton of links and patterns; this page gives a pretty good illustration of what the most basic stitch looks like and how it's done.
My tunisian crochet hook doesn't have a cable, it's only as long as a normal knitting needle, so I haven't tried a whole afghan in one go with it.
