-Size K (6.5 mm) Tunisian crochet hook with cord
-Charisma by Loops and Threads in teal or bulky 5 weight yarn (200 grams)
-Scissors
-Darning needle
-Measuring tape

tss: Tunisian simple stitch

Pattern Details and Notes:

Difficulty: Advanced

Size: 12.5” tall and 23” circumference (see notes for size changes)

Gauge: 11 stitches and 8 rows =4”

Sizing: To make this cowl taller, add more rows before adding the border. To make this cowl wider, add as many chains (in a multiple of 2) as needed to make the length desired.

Notes:

  1. This pattern has a gauge but it also has helpful measurements throughout the pattern.
     
  2. This pattern is worked best with a Tunisian crochet hook with a cord.
     
  3. This pattern is worked flat with the right side of the work facing, and then seamed up the back. 
     
  4. At the beginning of each row, the first stitch is on the hook and counts as a Tunisian knit stitch.
     
  5. Do not turn your work at the beginning of each row. Each row is worked from right to left (forward pass) and then from left to right (return pass).
