This free crochet pattern is called the Tri-Color Tunisian Scarf. The pattern uses the Tunisian Knit and Purl stitch and as well as three different colors
Recently, I was strolling through Michaels when I discover Lion Brand’s new yarn called Color Made Easy. It is a bulky yarn that is super soft and easy to work with.
As Clover provided me with the Clover’s Interchangeable crochet hooks I knew I had to use them for this scarf pattern. These hooks are very easy to work with and make the yarn simply glide over.
The beautiful Tri-Color Tunisian Scarf uses only 3 colors for which you need only 1 skein of each. Furthermore, the scarf is highlighting 2 of my favorite Tunisian crochet stitches: the Tunisian Knit stitch and the Tunisian Purl stitch. If you click on the links you will learn how to crochet these stitches in detail using lots of photos as well as a video for each.
But the scarf actually starts out with a foundation row that is made with the Tunisian Simple stitch for which I have a photo and video tutorial as well. It
Furthermore, I designed to have this Tri-Color Tunisian Scarf very long. Due to its bulky texture, I noticed that having a very long scarf is the best solution for chilly winter weather to cozy up and still feel and look stylish wearing it.

But to make this scarf even more special, I collaborated with Ashley from A Crafty Concept who created some beautiful Wrap Labels for this scarf specifically. You can also follow Ashley on Instagram and sign up for her newsletter where she shares wrap labels every Wednesday. Be sure not to share the wrap labels, but rather send people to my website so they can download the file themselves. ThanksDownload Tri-Color Tunisian Scarf WRAP LABELS Here

See what Angela, from my crochet group, said: “…Just today alone, I was speaking to a friend and mentioned this group to her because she’s having a hard time emotionally. I told her she needed to join so she can learn some cool crochet techniques and keep herself busy. You’re my first “go-to” group. Not only do you have some amazing ideas… But it’s you as a person that I can relate to. You’re kind, generous, and probably take things to heart more than you should (I do that too lol)… But you’re awesome! …”
