One of the basic stitches introduced for latch hook crochet is Tunisian Simple Stitch.
If worked with the upright stitch with two or three colours it is very easy to work this stitch with a latch hook. It is also easy to do, I think easier than knitting in the sense that you are casting on (picking up loops) and casting off.
It’s an attractive and neat stitch. I love it. It doesn’t have to be square either.
