Tunisian Crochet (aka Afghan or Tricot Crochet):
This type of crochet uses an elongated hook with a stopper on the handle end. Each row is worked twice and the work is never turned. A dense fabric is created with a definite front and back side and makes an ideal base for cross-stitching. (source: Wikipedia).
Amie Hirtes has excellent Tunisian Crochet video tutorials on her website: NexStitch
Double Ended Crochet: (aka Cro-Hook; Cro-Knit; Crochet on the DoubleTM; Crochenit) :
All of the above can be accomplished with a Double Ended Crochet Hook. Each hook end is the same size. Because a hook is on each end, two colors of yarn/thread can be handled at once and freely interchanged. (source: Wikipedia).
On the CrochetWithDee website there are 110 different types and techniques of crochet listed. Yes!...110 so far! See how many names there are for Tunisian crochet and for using a double ended hook HERE
