Description

The soft pleats of this Tunisian Knit Stitch fabric create plush and stretchy insulation. It’s a quick, one-skein crochet pattern written for two yarn weights: a light-to-regular worsted weight (heavy DK) version (shown in purple) requiring an L/8mm Tunisian hook, and an aran (heavy worsted) weight version (shown in heather grey) requiring an M/9mm Tunisian hook. I completed each one in 1.5 evenings each.

Skill Level Intermediate Tunisian

Some Tunisian stitches are worked into more than one row at a time. It’s recommended that you experience a beginner-level Tunisian crochet pattern before attempting this one. The only Tunisian stitch you need to know is the Tunisian Knit Stitch (Tks). Pattern is written with a limited amount of abbreviations. International English equivalents to American measurements, yarn weights, and stitch terms are provided in brackets.

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • A simple way to create pleats in Tunisian fabric
  • An easy way to build in some ‘accidental’ shaping
  • A way to create useful tunnels for added insulation
  • A fun, quick way to crochet a striking new neck warmer
