This free crochet pattern is called the Tri-Color Tunisian Scarf. The pattern uses the Tunisian Knit and Purl stitch in three different colors.

Recently, I was strolling through Michael’s when I discovered 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. To make it easier for you to learn how to crochet the Tri-Color Tunisian Scarf, I made a full video showing how to crochet it. That video is below and included all 3 different stitches as well as how to change colors when crocheting this amazing scarf.

Furthermore, I designed this Tri-Color Tunisian Scarf to be extra long. Due to its bulky texture, I feel that having a very long scarf is the best solution for chilly winter weather. Put this beautiful long scarf around your neck one to four times depending on how you like to wear it. I personally prefer wrapping it twice around my neck.

But to make this scarf even more special, I collaborated with Ashley from A Crafty Concept who created some beautiful Wrap Labels specifically for this scarf. 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. Thanks

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! …”
