This free pattern is for the Simple Tunisian Cowl. This pattern is made using Tunisian Double crochet stitches as well as worsted yarn.
Tunisian Crochet may sound intimidating because it uses a special crochet hook, but it’s actually much easier than it sounds. For this cowl pattern, you’ll practice the Tunisian Double Stitch and make a rectangle and turn it into a cowl.
Tunisian Crochet is a fun combination of knitting and crocheting and only needs a little bit of patience to learn. Once you practiced it a few times, it will not only become natural to you but you will likely get addicted to it. It is so fun.
