Fun and Fanciful Tunisian Crochet Cowl

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My goal was to get rid of at least one skein of yarn stash today and I accomplished my goal! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is sooooo easy to make and it took me less than 90 minutes. Using super bulky acrylic yarn and a size N/15 Tunisian Crochet hook, I cast on 12 stitches, then did one Tunisian Simple Stitch pass. After that, I did extended TSS on each pick up pass (added a chain stitch after each pick up), making sure to do a chain at the beginning and end of the pick up pass too. When I was about out of yarn (about 40 inches from the beginning), I bound off. I used the invisible mattress stitch to join the ends, then wove in all yarn tails. After that I ran a row of fringes along the invisible seam. To finish the piece, I hand washed it, threw it into the dryer on the spin cycle, then ran it through the gentle heat setting of my dryer until it was damp. I hung it over the railing of my porch for about an hour, until it was dry, put it on my dress form and took a photo! EASY PEASY!

Q&A with Lenas Legacy

I just started a scarf on super bulky too. Thanks for the tip on the size needle...I'll be going to Joanne's today to find a size N hook !! Looks so very nice...

I'm not sure you'll find an N hook at JoAnn's. I got mine at Ginger's old shop and she had them made special. I did recently get a terrific Tunisian Crochet hook with cables set on Amazon. Twelve hooks, from 3 to 10 mm (P) diameter for $10.20, with free Prime shipping. They're made out of wood and I like them.
