Skill Level: beginner crochet skill level
crochet tunisian knit stitch scarf

Finished Size: as long and wide as you desire

Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 250 yards)
Crochet Hook N (10.00 mm)
crochet yarn size 4

Gauge: is not that important. The scarf created in the photo uses a large hook so that it is easier for beginners to see the stitches. It also minimizes curl.

Special Stitches Used: Tunisian Knit Stitch (tks)

Crochet Pattern: Scarf
Start by chaining 12 or as wide as you want your scarf
Row 1: tks in second ch from hook and in each ch across
Row 2: tks in second st from hook and in each st across

Repeat row 2 until scarf is as long as you desire.

    Hi Rachel, my last row looks “open”. i tried to slip stitch between the stitches on the previous row but it forms a ridge 🙁
    pls help!

    • Rachel says:

      To finish off you make slip stitches in the stitches that you would normally pull up a loop in just like in Tunisian simple stitch. The number of slip stitches you make will be one less than the number of loops that are normally on your hook during the forward pass.

      I think the ridge you’re referring to are the “V’s” made by the slip stitch. But that’s normal and it may seem as if it’s on the front of your work, but that’s because it’s curled. Try blocking it when you’re done.

    I found your pattern last week. I went out and bought afghan hoof and some yarn – I just love it!

    Can you tell me how to keep my scarf from rolling/curling?

  6. Bookworm says:

    I’m just trying Tunisian Crochet for the first time and I’m starting with your pattern since it seems like a good way to practice something simple, though I think I’m going to use a smaller hook. I started with the N and confused myself. I crochet really tight normally and I’m used to thing being so spacey. I was going through the same spaces over and over again 😀

  7. I am actually trying to make the Tunisian Crochet Flower. I have followed the tunisian tutorial with no problem but cannot figure out how to increase in the 2nd round. I do more knitting so it may be really simple for a crochet person. Please help.

      Hi Venita, to increase in Tunisian crochet, pull up a loop between any 2 stitches where you want your increase to be. This will put an extra loop on your hook, therefore creating an additional stitch when you finish the row.

    The reverse side of the scarf is not very attractive. Did I do something wrong?
