  • Thank you Kristine for your free patterns. This is the first time a see this web page.

    I am new at Tunisian and looking forward to learn and crochet this pattern. Can you please let me know where I can find Sections 1-4, I have Sections 5-12.

    Once again, thank you for your free patterns with instructions.

    • Minerva, sorry for the delay in getting back to you! Here is the link to all the sections. At the bottom of each page of posts, there is a link that says “older posts”. If you click on that it will take you all the way back to the beginning. I’ll work on putting it all together as one pattern soon, but it may be a couple weeks before I can get to it. Let me know if you need a link for each post.


  • I am looking for the instructions to make this stitch into a double sided pattern and can’t find one that I understand. The directions I saw many years ago were in a crochet magazine and it was a double thickness with one solid color on one side and another color on the opposite side not showing the other color thru the opposite side. Can you give me that information?

    • Hi Karen,

      I don’t know of any tunisian crochet that is double sided. It always has a different pattern on the back, and there’s no way to separate the colors from front and back. Maybe they made 2 pieces and stitched them together?
