Reflections Tunisian Square Crochet Pattern

Looking for an easy Tunisian square to learn color changes with?

I love Tunisian colorwork. There is so much versitility in where and how you can change colors.

The Reflections Tunisian Square is made by changing colors after the forward pass, instead of the return pass like you might think to do. With an easy 1 row repeat, so you can just work on the color changes.

Finished Size: 12″ square

Yarn: #4 worsted weight
Sample used:

  • Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran in Granite (MC) – 90 yds
  • Caron One Pound in Soft Sage (CC) – 80 yds

Hook Size: Tunisian L/11 (8.0 mm) hook

Notions: Yarn Needle

Skill Level: Beginner – Uses basic Tunisian stitches with no shaping.

Gauge: 16 sts x 12 rows = 4″ in pattern


  • Pattern can be adjusted by adding any number of stitches. 
  • MC is worked on the forward pass and CC is worked on RetP (for every row).
  • The most challenging part of this pattern is the amount of ends to tie in. I recommend tying them in every few rows. It will prevent the left side from trying to come undone. 
  • You can use a regular hook for the bind off row. Tip – If the bind off row is too loose/wide you can go down a hook size.
