Tunisian Crochet Patterns (supplies)

​If you haven’t done Tunisian crochet before, you will need a few supplies. I have included the type of crochet yarn you need on each pattern below, but you also need:

Tunisian Crochet Hook

Tunisian Dishcloths

This is one of my favorite patterns. It uses a Tunisian simple stitch and her video tutorials are super easy to follow.

The free pattern is on her website, but you can also download a PDF version that has no ads and more photos for a nominal fee. I highly recommend that if you are making several of these. 

Gloria joined me in making these and we both said, this is such a great way to learn to use your Tunisian crochet hook. PS, the dishcloths are amazing and great for your kitchen or to give as gifts.

Dolores was kind enough to create this pattern for us. She said it was great for beginners and uses the basic stitches of Tunisian Crochet.  

Her fruit coasters turned out so cute. She uses them in the summer on her patio table.  She also created some really fun place mats to match them.

She likes the Tunisian crochet as she thinks it’s easier than using a regular crochet hook in traditional crochet. 

Tunisian Crochet Tote Bag Pattern

​Isn’t this the cutest bag. When I first saw the pattern, it intimidated me but guess what? It’s creating 2 rectangles and 2 handles and then putting them together.

She uses basic Tunisian crochet stitches, which I love, and you can easily change the size for gift bags or a smaller purse. 

Here are the measurements:

Panel: 12’’/30.5 cm wide x 15’’/38 cm tall

Strap: 1’’/2.5 cm wide x 26’’/66 cm (1+’’/ 2.5 cm per end of strap to attach)

I made a smaller one for my 2-year-old niece, and she loved it. It’s the perfect size for her dolls and toys, and she can carry it around anywhere. 

It is worth noting that raffia yarn can’t be washed in your washing machine, but you can spot clean it. I recommend using darker yarn in this free crochet pattern so that dirt isn’t an issue. 

Tunisian Crochet Pillow Pattern

So I do want to be clear, this is a pillow cover. You will need to buy the insert. I picked those up off Amazon and put the link above.  This pattern uses 2 different Tunisian stitches. 

One side is the simple stitch, while the other side is the Tunisian Straw stitch. Both are each stitches, although I did practice the straw stitch with my afghan hook a few times before creating this sweet pillow. 

You can do this in a solid color or find a patterned yarn. I also created a reversible pillow with 2 different yarn colors. I really love how these came out, and they are super comfy on my couch. 

Tunisian Crochet Blanket

​Our friend Kim loves making crochet blankets and mentioned she was going to be making a baby blanket, so I sent her this Tunisian crochet baby blanket pattern and asked her to review it. She LOVED it. 

You can easily use the free Tunisian crochet blanket pattern or spend just a little to get the PDF with no ads and way more photos.  

I asked her how she liked this afghan crochet pattern, and she said she loved how easy the stitches were and how the return pass and forward pass were so easy to learn. 

This Tunisian baby blanket or heck, a blanket for you is such a cozy blanket, no matter who uses it. You can easily use different colors and make it in different sizes.

This particular one shown is 40″ x 58″ but again you can change the sizes a little bit to fit your needs. 

Tunisian Crochet Cardigan Pattern

I reached out to Melissa and asked if she would be interested in looking at these gorgeous crochet patterns. She is an intermediate to advanced crocheter and loves Tunisian patterns. She jumped at the opportunity and couldn’t wait to make it for herself. 

She said this definitely isn’t for beginners, but for someone who has made several Tunisian crochet patterns, this is a fun way to expand your skills.  

She said you work from top to bottom in the Ragland style and once you get the hang of it you can actually make more sweaters, capes and even summer tops.

You can also adjust the length of the bottom and your sleeves in case you need that. There are photo tutorials so in case you get stuck also the way, the photos definitely help. 

There are detailed instructions and step-by-step instructions, especially in the written tutorial. I hinted to Melissa this makes the perfect gift for Christmas. 

Tunisian Crochet Sweater

I LOVE the look of this sweater. I had to find someone on our team who could make this Tunisian crochet guide. Joy said yes and I was so happy. You could use your leftover stash of DK yarn or colour-changing yarn just depending on your personal preference. 

The pattern itself uses basic techniques when it comes to Tunisian crochet basics.  I don’t recommend though if this is your first project in Tunisian Crochet that this would be the one.  I

t’s also not a quick project unless you are intermediate to advanced, but still allow yourself a day to complete it. 

Here’s how the pattern works: 

Crochet up two panels for the body using the Tunisian Simple Stitch, then, after you’ve seamed the shoulders, start working on the sleeves by picking up stitches.

For the body and sleeves of the sweater, employ a corded hook. When it comes to the ribbing at the hem, cuffs, and neckline, switch to a standard crochet hook.

Tunisian Crochet Washcloths

Who couldn’t use some new washcloths? I did read through her tutorial before beginning and thus why the yarn here is listed differently than her original. 

In crafting this crochet washcloth pattern, I incorporated a Tunisian purl stitch edge and a mix of knit and purl stitches to achieve a basketweave-inspired appearance and texture.

Thanks to the blend of Tunisian stitches, this pattern stays flat without any curling issues, a common challenge faced in Tunisian crochet projects. I love how they turned out. 

Wow, that is a lot of great patterns for you to practice your Free Tunisian crochet patterns. I can’t wait to see yours, so make sure you stop by our Facebook group and show off your creation. If you have a favorite free pattern, definitely put that in the comments.
