Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL Links

My Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL is one of my most read and pinned series of posts. The project was a way to learn Tunisian crochet, or even explore some new Tunisian stitches you’ve never tried before. It continues to be wildly popular – thank you Pinterest! But there is one question that seems to be asked more than any other and that is, “Where can I find all the sampler scarf posts?” I’m not sure why, but randomly my site won’t give you all the posts when you do a “Tunisian” search, so I thought I would put them all in one handy spot to save you time.

Wattle Stitch Tutorial

This is easy for beginners and is a great way to add some texture to your project. You can use any multiple of 3 to make your project as large, or small, as you would like. If you’d like to give it a try, the steps are below. Otherwise I’ll be posting a free project in the next couple of days, that you can use to practice on.

Here are the steps to creating it:

1)  chain as many as desired (remember multiples of 3)

2)  skip 1st 2 chs (counts as sc), * (sc, ch1, dc) in next ch, skip next 2 ch, repeat from * across, sc in last ch, turn.

3)  ch1, sc in 1st sc, skip next dc, * (sc, ch1, dc) in ch1 sp, skip next sc & dc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc.

Repeat step 3.

The pics below show you exactly where you will be inserting the hook.
