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.

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 12

This is going to be the last section of the CAL.  If you’d like the scarf to be longer you can just repeat any/all of the sections we’ve done.  I will do a separate post on how to end your tunisian project.  When you are done you will probably want to block your scarf so that all sections are exactly the same width.

Here is a lattice pattern, which is made by crossing two stitches.  I really like the look of this, and think it would make a great project on its own.

 

Section 12 –  Lattice Pattern

 

TSS = insert hook behind next vertical bar, yo, pull up a loop (for tutorial see section 1 of scarf)

 

Row 127:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 128:  skip 1st vertical bar, * skip next vertical bar, draw up a loop in next vertical bar (see fig.1), draw up a loop in skipped vertical bar (see fig.2), repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch (see fig.3). (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 11

The tunisian honeycomb stitch is a combination of TSS & TPS stitches alternatively worked across the row.

 

Section 11 –  Honeycomb Stitch

 

TSS = insert hook behind next vertical bar, yo, pull up a loop (section 1 of scarf)

TPS = move yarn in front of hook, insert hook behind next vertical bar, move yarn to back of hook, yo, pull up a loop (section 2 of scarf)

 

Row 115:  skip 1st two vertical bars, * TSS in next st, TPS in next st, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch (see fig.1). (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 116:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TPS in TSS of previous row, TSS in TPS of previous row, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (20 loops on hook)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 117:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in TPS of previous row, TPS in TSS of previous row, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (20 loops on hook)

The tunisian net stitch is worked between stitches, as opposed to most of the stitches which are worked with the vertical bar.

 

Section 10 –  Net Stitch
(also known as the Tunisian full stitch)

 

TSS = insert hook between next 2 vertical bars, yo, pull up a loop

Row 100:  skip 1st two vertical bars (see fig.1), * TSS in space between 2nd & 3rd vertical bars inserting hook from front to back (see fig.2), yo, pull up a loop (see fig.3), * insert hook between next 2 vertical bars, yo, pull up a loop, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (see fig.4) (20 loops on hook)

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 9

The tunisian berry stitch is made very similar to the regular crocheted berry stitch. You use a regular TSS (section 1) and add some texture. It looks like a lot of rows, but once you get the pattern going it doesn’t take long.

 

Section 9 –  Berry Stitch

 

Row 85 – 87:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 88:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 9 times, ch3, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 10 times.

Row 89: skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, inserting hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 8 times, ch3 (see fig.1), (yo, pull through 2 loops) 2 times (see fig.2), ch3, (yo, pull through 2 lps on hook) 9 times (see fig.3). NOTE: you will want to hold the “berry stitch” in front of your next TSS row. (see fig.4)

Fig.1 – ch3

Fig.2 – yo, pull 2 loops off hook

Fig.3 – end of completed row.

Tunisian Berry StitchFig.4 – beginning of next TSS row, with berry stitches to the front.

Row 90: skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, inserting hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 7 times, ch3, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 4 times, ch3, (yo, pull through 2 lps on hook) 8 times.

Row 91: skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, inserting hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 6 times, ch3, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 6 times, ch3, (yo, pull through 2 lps on hook) 7 times.

Row 92: skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, inserting hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 5 times, ch3, (yo, pull through 2 loops) 8 times, ch3, (yo, pull through 2 lps on hook) 6 times.

Row 94:  Repeat Row 90.

Row 95:  Repeat Row 89.

Row 96:  Repeat Row 88.

Row 97 – 99:  skip 1st vertical bar, * TSS in next vertical bar, repeat from * across, inserting hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 8

By changing the order in which you add the vertical bars to your hook you can create different looks and textures. Let’s try a slanted pattern. (I once saw this called the “Fabric Pattern” but not sure if that’s what it’s officially called.)

 

Section 8 –  Slanted Fabric Pattern

 

Row 74:  skip 1st vertical bar, * insert hook under next 2 vertical bars together (see fig.1), yo, pull up a loop (see fig.2), TSS in 1st vertical bar of 2 bar group you just worked behind (see fig.3, fig.4, & fig.5), repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch (see fig.6)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Fig.1 – insert hook behind next 2 vertical bars

Fig.2 – yo, pull up a loop

Fig.3 – The gold hook shows both stitches you just worked behind. The next part of the stitch will only be worked behind the bar to the right.

Fig.4 – insert hook behind 1st bar of 2 bar group just made

Fig.5 – yo, pull up a loop

Slanted Fabric Tunisian StitchFig.6 – end of row

Row 75:  skip 1st vertical bar, TSS in next vertical bar (see fig.7), * insert hook under next 2 vertical bars together (see fig.8), yo, pull up a loop (see fig.9), TSS in 1st vertical bar of 2 bar group you just worked behind (see fig.10 & fig.11), repeat from * across to last 2 sts, TSS in next vertical bar, insert hook through both loops of last stitch (see fig.12).

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Fig.7 – TSS in next vertical bar

Fig.8 – insert hook behind next 2 vertical bars

Fig.9 – yo, pull up a loop

Fig.10 – insert hook in 1st vertical bar of 2bars just grouped

Fig.11 – yo, pull up a loop

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 7

We had a few people interested in starting the CAL last week. Yay! I know, for myself, if a project is too far under way, I won’t jump on board, so I decided to give them a few days to catch up.

Today let’s try an openwork pattern. There are many different types of openwork patterns, so this is just one of many.

 

Section 7 – Openwork Pattern

 

Row 61:  skip 1st vertical bar, insert hook under next 2 vertical bars together (see fig.1), yo, pull up a loop (see fig.2), yo (see fig.3), * insert hook behind next 2 vertical bars, yo, pull up a loop, yo, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (see fig.4)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Fig.1 – insert hook behind 2 vertical bars

Fig.2 – yo, pull through a loop

Fig.3 – yo before going behind next 2 stitches (repeat from fig.1)

Tunisian Openwork Pattern StitchFig.4 – Completed Row

Row 62:  skip 1st vertical bar, insert hook under next vertical bar (see fig.5), yo, pull up a loop (see fig.6), * insert hook in next ch sp (see fig. 7 & 8), yo, pull up a loop (see fig.9), insert hook in next vertical bar, yo, pull up a loop, repeat from * across, insert hook through both loops of last stitch.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Fig.5 – insert hook behind 1 vertical bar

Fig.6 – yo, pull through a loop

Fig.7 – insert hook through the space where gold hook is pointing

Fig.8  – hook inserted from front to back all the way through the space

Fig.9 – yo, pull up a loop

Row 63 – 73:  Repeat Row 61 & 62, ending with row 61.

 

I really enjoyed this stitch once I got it going. It looks much better than I expected. What do you think?

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 6

It’s been an interesting couple of days around my house. I have the world’s happiest most miserable teether….

And my 4 year old was trying to get the eraser off her pencil, and using force only a 4 year old can muster, pulled so hard that when the eraser finally let go she literally poked a hole through her 7 year old sister’s ear (it was a newly sharpened pencil). So, she had an entrance and exit wound, and a hole in the side of her head. We later joked that those are the dangers of homeschooling, because in public school you would have more space between you and your neighbor….. :) She’s fine!  The daughter that inflicted the pain cried more than the daughter that was injured. She felt SO bad!

 

The doctor’s office told me, never in 30+ years have they heard an injury like that. The joys of children. I’m just very grateful it wasn’t her eye!

Ok, so back to our scarf…..

I love adding texture to my pieces, so let’s try the puff stitch.  It is worked by grouping stitches together so they puff up. To create the puff stitch, you start a bunch of stitches and then finish them all off together.

Section 6 – Puff Stitch

Puff Stitchyo, insert hook behind both loops of next st (see fig.1), yo, pull up a loop, (yo, insert hook behind same st, yo, pull up a loop) 2 times (see fig.2), yo, pull through 6 loops on hook (see fig.3), ch1.

Row 52:  skip 1st vertical bar, TSS across row.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 53:  skip 1st vertical bar, TSS (from section 1) in next 3 sts, * puff st, TSS in next 4 sts, repeat from * across working last stitch through both loops.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Fig.1 – yo, insert hook behind both vertical posts of next stitch

Fig.2 – (yo, insert hook behind same st, yo, pull through loop) 2 times.

Yarn over, pull through 6 loops on hook.

Row 54:  skip 1st vertical bar, TSS across row.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 55:  skip 1st vertical bar, TSS in next st, * puff st, TSS in next 4 sts, repeat from * across working last stitch through both loops.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 56:  skip 1st vertical bar, TSS across row.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 57 – 60:  Repeat Rows 53 & 56 one time.

I had a hard time getting good pics of each step (it’s not easy trying to take a pic of “yo, pull through 6 loops”. lol If you think you need more help, or better pics, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

By combining 2 of these stitches, we can create a basketweave pattern.  We’ll use the TKS & the TPS, which were our second and third sections.

Section 4 – Basket Weave

Row 37:  skip 1st vertical bar, TKS (section 3) in next 3 sts, * TPS (section 2) in next 4 sts, TKS in next 4 sts, repeat from * across, work last stitch through both loops.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 38 – 39:  Repeat Row 37.

Row 40:  skip 1st vertical bar, TPS (section 2) in next 3 sts, * TKS (section 3) in next 4 sts, TPS in next 4 sts, repeat from * across, work last stitch through both loops.

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Row 41 – 42:  Repeat Row 40.

Row 43 – 51:  Repeat Rows 37 – 42.

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 3

The third stitch in our CAL is called the tunisian knit stitch (TKS), which looks very similar to the stockinette stitch of knitting.

Section 3 – TKS

Row 28:  skip 1st vertical bar, * you will be working between front and back of vertical posts (see fig.1) insert hook from front to back between 2 vertical bars (see fig.2 & 3), yo, pull up a loop see fig.4), repeat from * across to last bar (see fig.5), insert hook through both loops of last bar  (see fig.6). (20 lps on hk)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Fig.1 – This is the front and back of the vertical bar (needle behind both to show both front and back).

You will insert your hook between the two bars shown. Left (front) part of bar will be in front of your hook. Right (back) part of bar will be behind your hook.

Fig.2 – shows front of vertical bar in front of hook

Fig.3 – shows the back vertical bar behind hook

Fig.4 – yo, pull through loop

Fig.5 – repeat, keeping all loops on hook

Fig.6 – insert hook through both loops

Row 29 – 43:  Repeat Row 28.

Tunisian Sampler Scarf CAL – Part 2

The second stitch in our CAL is called the tunisian purl stitch (TPS), but it is also known as the purl stitch. If you compare it to the knit purl stitch they look very similar (which is probably why the name :)).

Section 2 – TPS

Row 13:  skip 1st vertical bar (directly below loop on hook), * bring yarn in front of work/hook (see Fig.1), working behind yarn insert hook under next vertical bar (see Fig.2), yo (see Fig.3), pull up a loop (see Fig.4), repeat from * across to last bar, insert hook through both loops of last stitch. (20 lps on hk)

To complete row: yo, pull through 1st loop on hook, * yo, pull through 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.

Fig.1 – Drop yarn down below hook

Fig.2 – insert hook into vertical bar

Fig.3 – wrap yarn back behind loops on hook

Fig.4 – yo, pull up a loop (pull through only 1 loop on hook)

Fig.5 – one stitch complete

Row 14 – 27:  Repeat Row 13.

Tunisian Purl Stitch - TPS

I won’t be posting a new stitch tomorrow for two reasons. One, tomorrow is normally my WIP Wednesday and I want to keep that on schedule. I’d love for anyone to add their project so we can see what you’ve accomplished so far! And the second reason is that I want those who don’t have as much time, or are super new to this, to have a chance to get caught up/keep up. I’ll post a new stitch on Thurs. (and I’ll try to have it posted first thing in the morning this time.)

Happy Crocheting!
