This new Tunisian crochet lace pattern pleasantly edges itself as you work each offset group of rows. One skein of a fingering weight yarn results in an easy to wear warmer for the head, neck, and shoulders. It is crocheted with no shaping, then seamed into a ring scarf (a.k.a. Snood, Shoulder Cowl Wrap, and Eternity scarf). Disguising the seam with a few rows of seed beads turns this easy shape into a special gift, especially if you use cashmere yarn as shown here!

I developed this lacy Tunisian crochet stitch pattern myself. If it seems familiar to you, it's probably due to how Tunisian eyelets mimic the look of bunches of chain strands in a traditional "Bowties" stitch pattern of regular crochet.

Skill Level: Intermediate. This pattern features less common Tunisian crochet stitches. I have written it with a minimal amount of abbreviations. US terms are followed by UK equivalents in brackets. Pattern abbreviations, and the instructions for how to do each special Tunisian stitch, can be found in a pink sidebar on every page of this pattern. (This is especially helpful for Tunisian Crochet patterns.)

Note: It's best if you have used at least one Tunisian crochet pattern for the Beginner or Easy skill level first; to see if you're ready for an Intermediate-level pattern, test yourself with my quick checklist here

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • The easy chic look of constructing a cowl on the bias with offset rows
  • An introductory experience in beaded Tunisian crochet (no pre-stringing necessary)
  • How to create a designerly beaded seam as you crochet the final rows
  • A fresh adaptation of the popular "bowties" stitch pattern for Tunisian crochet
  • The unique value of Tunisian yarn overs (eyelets)

Approximate Finished Dimensions for One Skein of Yarn

Each crocheter's results with the same amount of yarn will vary a bit.

Width (circumference): 40" {100 cm}; height: 10" {25 cm}.

Supplies Needed

  • Crochet Hook: Size US I-9/5.5 mm straight Tunisian crochet hook at least 9" {23 cm} long, or size needed for gauge.
  • Yarn used: Jade Sapphire Silk Cashmere 2-ply (55% Silk, 45% Cashmere; 400yds/366m per 1.94oz/55g ball), color #93 Rosehip. 

Yarn substituting advice: Begin with yarns that list a needle or hook range of B/1/2.25 mm--D/3/3.25 mm, even though you’ll be using a 5.5 mm Tunisian crochet hook. If you try a yarn that doesn’t look as good as in my photos, give it a chance by blocking it a bit--it only takes a few minutes with a misting bottle. 

  • Beads: Size 6/0 round beads (a.k.a. "E beads" or "large" seed beads): 176 beads, to be strung onto yarn later.
  • Beading needle (click here to make your own simple beading needle with wire)
  • Special Technique: Tunisian (Beaded Lace worked on the bias)
  • Skill Level: intermediate: fancy stitches
