7 Tunisian Crochet Scarves Patterns You Must Try

Save for later

One of our favorite things to make with Tunisian Crochet are Tunisian crochet scarves. They look like they are knitted, but instead, they are created with an Afghan hook (a long hook)  usually with basic stitches. 

Our team had a blast making these and can’t wait for you to find the one you love and make your own or to make one for a gift.

We have an entire article on all the Tunisian crochet stitches with video tutorials and photos. It’s crucial to know those first before getting started with these scarves. 

Tunisian crochet is different because it uses 2 concepts: Return pass and Forward Pass.  Here’s a quick description for them. 

In Tunisian crochet, the terms “return pass” and “forward pass” refer to two main steps involved in creating a row of stitches. Tunisian crochet is a unique crochet technique that combines elements of both crochet and knitting. Here’s an explanation of these terms:

Forward Pass

   – During the forward pass, you work from right to left (if you’re right-handed) or left to right (if you’re left-handed), inserting the hook from right to left through the designated stitch.

   – You pick up loops on the hook by pulling up a loop in each stitch across the row. Unlike traditional crochet, you don’t complete the stitches on the forward pass. Instead, you leave the loops on the hook.

Return Pass

   – The return pass is the second part of the row. It involves working from left to right (if you started the forward pass from the right) or right to left (if you started the forward pass from the left).

   – During the return pass, you yarn over and pull through one loop on the hook at a time. This process binds off the stitches and creates a fabric with a unique texture.

   – The number of loops left on the hook after the forward pass determines the type of stitch pattern or fabric you’re creating. Different stitch patterns and designs in Tunisian crochet involve variations in the forward pass.

In summary, the forward pass is the part where you pick up loops, and the return pass is where you yarn over and pull through loops to complete the stitches and create the fabric.

The combination of these two passes creates the distinctive look and feel of Tunisian crochet. Without further ado, here are our favorite patterns we love for Tunisian crochet scarves.

Joan was so excited to make this and review it. This is more for an intermediate crocheter.  Not the first project we would recommend doing. Joan said once you start with the foundation row, it goes pretty quickly after that. 

She did a have a little difficult with the tassels. She followed the photos in the pattern and then asked in this Facebook group for some suggestions and was able to complete it. 

It can be made without the tassels, so if they give you difficulty also, simple don’t make them.
