A Free Pattern Download


Tunisian Crochet is cross between knitting and crochet and results in a fabric that doesn't look like either. It is fun and fast and a nice addition to your knitting skills. We blogged about it here.

The long colorway changes of Crystal Palace Mochi Chunky are perfect for this stunning blanket.

The pattern includes the hat, scarf and blanket, as well as detailed 'how to' instructions and photos. It's a great knit-while-you-chat project.

  • Difficulty
    This project is good for any knitter who likes to try new things. Tunisian Knitting makes a great first craft project for non-knitters but we would recommend a scarf to start with.
  • Sizes
    This blanket it 30" x 38". However the only limit on size is the length of your Tunisian Hook. They sell them with cord extensions that allow for wider projects such s this one.

    I bought a beautiful 22" long wood hook at Stitches West from Bag Smith. It is a piece of art in itself. Here is the link if you are interested.
