I can’t believe I’m just discovering tunisian crocheting!! Where has this been for the last however many years I’ve been crocheting?!?!
I originally started this scarf with a extra wide chunky scarf in mind, but quickly realized I wouldn’t be able to achieve that with one skein of yarn. So… cowl scarf it is!
The funny part is I’m currently in a small, beach town where the climate doesn’t really call for warm and fuzzy knitwear thus there is a lack of availability when it comes to knit and crochet materials. I had to get creative with making my own tunisian crochet hook. I simply just wound a rubber band around one end of a plastic crochet hook I brought (shown below).
I’m loving the way tunisian crochet looks! And I’m amazed at how fast the rows seem to get done!
- K10.5 (6.5mm) crochet hook (tunisian or regular with a rubber band at the end)
- 1 skein of Heartland from Lion Brand Yarn in beige (this will be the main color)
- 1 skein of James C. Brett Marble yarn in MT 26 (this will be the contrasting color)
- MC: main color
- CC: contrasting color
Co 35 onto crochet needle
R 1-4: tss with MC
R 5: tss with CC
Repeat rows 1-5 until you get the length you desire. (I did 16 of the 5 rows – 80 rows altogether).
Afterwards I crocheted a border with the CC.
I threaded the yarn thru the bars of the Tunisian crochet.
And voila! You’ve got yourself a tunisian crocheted cowl scarf.
