Hi everyone! :)
Today I’m going to show you how to make your very own skinny scarf, using the Tunisian simple stitch!
Note that you don’t necessarily need a Tunisian crochet hook to be able to do Tunisian crochet. For my skinny scarf I used a KnitPro interchangeable crochet hook with a cable, but you can also use a regular crochet hook; as long as it’s long enough to accommodate all of your stitches.
I used Scheepjes Stonewashed XL yarn for my skinny scarf with a 6mm crochet hook. When you’re making garments or anything wearable, be sure to move up 1 hook size. The Tunisian simple stitch can become very dense and tight, so I find it’s best to use a bigger hook to give your fabric more drape.
Tunisian crochet is worked back and forth in rows, so from right to left, and then back again from left to right.
10. When you’re done with your piece, give it a nice finishing touch by adding a solid border. To do this, pull up a loop again through the vertical stitch, then work it into a single crochet. Keep going like this until all the stitches in the top row are single crochet stitches. Cut the yarn and weave in the ends.
And that’s all there is to it! :) Easy no? I love the texture of the Tunisian simple stitch, and I love how it kind of looks like knitting because there is a very clear front and back side to your work.
The possibilities are endless with this stitch; remember way back when I made these wristies? They look so awesome because of the self striping yarn! :)
Are you going to create anything using the Tunisian simple stitch? I’d love to see!
