Posted by on Aug 14, 2014 in Crocheting | Comments


Traditionally when we think of patterns for Tunisian crochet, we go straight for the afghan. But take one look around Craftsy, and you’ll see that patterns for Tunisian crochet can be so much more than a blanket. Use your Tunisian skills to make a surprisingly stylish project, from sweaters to cropped cardigans and capelets.

Get some inspiration from these patterns for Tunisian crochet. (And don’t worry. We have some classes that can help you master those Tunisian stitches, too!)

Bleached Shoulders Tunisian Sweater

Stripes never looked so cool, thanks to a combination of bleached shoulders and Tunisian crochet stitches. This is a great example of how color can totally change the look of a garment. If you’re not a fan of stripes, you could also crochet this in a solid color. Or, imagine how awesome it could look with an ombré color palette!

Tunisian Tennis Vest

Only Tunisian crochet can give you a look like the stitches in this tennis vest. The bodice is worked flat, so you can adjust the length in any way you need to fit your body and the style you want. It can even be worked longer if you want more of a tunic style.

This is one of those garments that’s great for seasonal transitions, whether it’s spring to summer or summer to fall.

  1. Working more and more with Tunisian crochet. I love it! I also teach crochet and am finding that Tunisian seems to be easier for others to learn. I think it is mainly because the stitches are so much easier to count. What do you think?
