Flying Geese Stitches
These are some of the more advanced stitches I created when I first began tinkering with Tunisian Crochet.  I call them Flying Geese, because the rows of V’s remind me of flying Geese.     

Flying Geese #1 Tss2together & Tks Combo
Worked in multiples of 2 sts +3 chs

Row 1 Forward and Return: As you normally would for Tks or Tss.
Row 2 Forward: With 1 loop on hook, (Tss2tog, Yo,) across the row, working a Tss into the last two sts. Return: As you normally would for Tss or Tks.
Row 3: Forward- Insert hook into center of next st, Yo, pull through and leave the loop on the hook.
Insert hk under diagonal thread just to the left of previous st. Yo, pull through and leave loop on hook.

NOTES-The stitches will look similar to this:
|~/~|~/~|~/~|~/~|~/~|
Row 3 Return: As you normally would for Tss.
The pattern is created by repeating Rows 2 & 3.

Flying Geese Variation #2: Tss2together & Tss Combo
Worked in multiples of 2 sts +3 chs.

Row 1 Forward and Return: As you would for Tss or Tks.
Row 2 Forward: With 1 loop on hook, V St across the row. Tss into the last two sts. Return.
Row 3 Forward: With 1 loop on hook, *Tss in next st. Slip hook under the next diagonal thread, yo, and draw yarn through leave loop on hook. Repeat from * across piece work a Tss into last stitch.  Return as you normally would treating Yo’s as a loop.
NOTES-The stitches will look similar to this:
|~/~|~/~|~/~|~/~|~/~|~/~|
For Row 3 Forward, you will slip hook under first a vertical thread, pull the yarn through and leave the loop on the hook, then slip the hook under the next diagonal thread and pull the yarn through and leave the loop on the hook.

Flying Geese #3- Simple Stitch Foundation
Worked in multiples of 2 sts +3 chs.
Tss2tog- Tunisian Simple Stitch 2 together: This is also known as a Decreasing stitch.
To form this stitch, *Slip hook under the vertical threads of 2 Afghan sts. Yo, draw yarn through both vertical threads and leave loop on hook. Yo and repeat from *.
On the Return, drop loops off one by one including those created by the Yo the hook.
Row 1 Forward and Return: Follow instructions for Tunisian Simple Stitch.
Row 2 Forward: With 1 loop on hook, (Tss2tog, Yo,) across the piece, working a Tss into the last two sts. Return.
Row 3: Repeat Row 2 Forward and Return.
NOTES:
The stitches will look similar to this:
|~/~|~/~|~/~|~/~|~/~|
For Rows 3+ you will slip the hook under the vertical thread and the diagonal just to the left of it. Yo, pull yarn under those threads and leave the loop on the hook. Yo, and work next st.
Row 3 Return: Drop the loops off-including the loop created by the YO-as you normally would for any other Tunisian Crochet stitch.
