Tunisian crochet patterns and hooks

Hankering for something new? Tunisian crochet offers a more knit-like texture, and these Tunisian crochet patterns are perfect for gift giving this holiday season. 

Have you ever tried Tunisian crochet? For yarn crafters who yearn after the close woven texture of knitting, it’s the perfect solution. Instead of having one active stitch, all of your stitches are live on your hook, like in knitting. Curious? Click here to see some helpful video tutorials!

Get your gear

You need specialized hooks for Tunisian crochet. For fans of KnitPro tools, this hook provides all of the quality and comfort that KnitPro is known for, with the necessary double ended hook that you need. This hook is available in a wide range of sizes to suit almost any project.

If exotic woods and single ended Tunisian hooks are more your style, we love the Laurel Hill line. I’ve recently started using their hooks, and the result has been tremendous – it has completely corrected my tension issues and completely removed my hand fatigue symptoms!


Made with Forest Palm wood, these hooks are as comfortable and artistic as they are functional.

These super simple mitts are a perfect project for a Tunisian beginner. We love the subtle stripe and ribbing around the cuff – and made with worsted weight yarn, you’ll be done before you know it.

This pattern for intermediate Tunisian crocheters requires increases, decreases, and blocking. Each row in the pattern is both written out and charted to suit whichever form you prefer. This pattern features Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace, a gorgeous 100% merino wool yarn that’s a dream to crochet with.

Tri scarf by Yulia Tkacheva

This tri-colored scarf is a crocheter’s dream, featuring the stunning Malabrigo Worsted yarns. This pattern requires a double ended Tunisian hook and the knowledge of Tunisian purls, reverses, and spirals. The pattern can easily be adjusted to be larger or smaller depending on what size you would like.

  1. I need to learn to crochet and knit plus learn how to read a pattern again. Much help would be appreciated.
