The Yarn for a Tunisian Crochet Pattern
I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to use this Tunisian crochet hook for but as soon as I saw the Lion Brand Heartland yarn at my local yarn store I knew exactly what I was going to design with it.
I chose two beautiful colors called Acadia & Yosemite which are inspired by National Parks and Landmarks. The way these colors make the crochet stitches look amazing!
I loved how soft the yarn was (you will too!) and knew it would make a perfect crochet cowl. You could also turn this into a Tunsian scarf too if you’d prefer that style instead.

The Pattern Steps for the Tunisian Cowl
Foundation Row: Remember we are Keeping all loops on the hook throughout, to begin Skip the first chain from the hook and draw up a loop in each chain across. DO NOT TURN!! NEXT: Yarn Over, Draw it through the first loop on hook, * Yarn over, draw through the next 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.
You can change colors here to color B if you choose. To change colors, hook color B on when three loops remain on the hook.
ROW 1: Keeping on the loops on hook, skip the first vertical bar, draw up a loop under the next vertical bar and each vertical bar across.
Row 1 part 2: Yarn Over, Draw it through the first loop on hook, * Yarn over, draw through the next 2 loops, repeat from * across until 1 loop remains.
Repeat Row 1 and Row 1 – Part 2 for the desired length of cowl.
I did a total of 74 rows to finish my crochet cowl, but you could make it longer or shorter depending on the fit needed.
When you reach your desired length, fasten off and leave a 12-15 inch tail for joining.
Join together two ends with a yarn needle and make sure the wrong side (the side you didn’t start your cowl on) out of your cowl is facing out.
To join my cowl I used the whip stitch method, but just weaving in and out with a yarn needle would work too!
