Tunisian Sampler Scarf Crochet Along

Posted by on March 26, 2012 in Learn to Crochet | 5 comments

Due to my children having strep throat last week, I didn’t get as much done on the tunisian scarf as I had hoped.  BUT, I’m planning on kicking off the CAL next Monday (4/2).  Interest has been split between whether to do it here, or on Ravelry, so I’ve decided to post the pattern here, but there will be a group on Ravelry for those who have questions, want to participate in discussions, make new friends, etc. I’ll also gladly take questions, and comments, on here.

I’ve decided not to have a hook requirement. I want this to be a stash buster (use up something you already have….unless you want an excuse to go yarn shopping ;)) so I’m making it up using a few different hook and yarn sizes.  You can pick the yarn you’d like to use and then, your tunisian/afghan hook will need to be 3 sizes larger than the recommended hook for that yarn. Example: if you’ve decided to use a #4 yarn that calls for an H hook, then you will need a K (7.00mm) afghan hook. If you’re a tight crocheter feel free to go up even one more hook size. It will still look great, and the stitches won’t be too loose. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask.

I’ll get the Ravelry group up in the next day or two, and let you know how to find it.

PS – This is a great pattern for those that have never done tunisian/afghan stitches and want to learn!

Happy Crocheting!

  1. Super excited for this to start!

  2. Looks like fun. I’ve been doing Tunisian for a while but would still love to participate. I did a mood scarf two years ago and I used it to practice Tunisian stitches. It was a lot of fun and the scarf turned out really pretty. Looking forward to this.

  3. I’d love to participate, too.
    I bought my first (!) tunesian crochet hook recently and I am excited to try it for the first time. :)

  4. It’s looking good.

  5. Nice green color, what are you making. Hope your week is better then last.
