Push the needle through your first stitch from back of work to front of work.

Don’t pull all the way through, leave the loop on the back side like this.

Work through the next stitch and push the needle from front to back, pulling the yarn as you go. Make sure to hold down the loop in the back so it doesn’t come out.

Now take the needle and pull it through the loop in the back and pull the yarn all the way through the loop.

Tighten the stitch and now your yarn is anchored to your piece. You should do this every time you work with a new strand. I usually work stitches until I have a 6 in. tail remaining (enough to weave in) then I start a new strand. For this project, I used a 40 in. strand doubled over each time.

Crochet Fingerless Mitts Inspiration:

A few weeks ago, I received some happy mail in the form of another fun Hobbii Challenge. This time, we were asked to try out the Hobbii Upcycled Alpaca Blend yarn. At the end of last year, I had been toying with the idea of designing fingerless mitts but I couldn’t decide on what stitch combination to use. When I received this yarn, I just knew I had to make the fingerless mitts a reality! I loved working with this yarn, it was super soft and not scratchy like other varieties of wool yarns!

I used a combination of the Tunisian crochet crossed stitch and Tunisian crochet purl stitch to give some nice stitch definition and a ribbing effect. I am really happy with the way they turned out, I hope you love making them!

This pattern was showcased as part of the 2024 International Crochet Month Blog Hop! Marie from Underground Crafter has put together this blog hop featuring fun new patterns throughout the month.

Notes About Sizing for the Crochet Fingerless Mitts Pattern:

  • Measure your gauge swatch across unstretched and stretched. Note the two numbers and subtract to find the difference. This is how much you will need to subtract from the hand circumference measurement to determine width for a tighter fit.
  • Measure your hand circumference and length using the schematic below. Measure your hand circumference by wrapping your tape measure around your knuckles. Measure the length by measuring from your knuckles to 2 in. below your wrist.
     
  • Calculate stitches per inch by dividing the number of stitches by inches of gauge swatch. For example: The gauge swatch measurement was 15 sts per 4 inches. 15 divided by 4 = 3.75 sts per inch.
  • Use the measurements to calculate number of stitches to chain
    • For a regular fit, example:
      • For an 8 in. hand circumference, you will need to chain (8 in. x 3.75 sts) = 30 sts (for this pattern you will need a multiple of 6 + 2 so we will do 32 sts) for a total width of approximately 8 in.
        • Calculate using the above method to find out how many stitches you need to chain. Substitute this number for X in the pattern below.
  • For a tighter fit, example:
    • The gauge swatch stretched is 5 in. and unstretched it is 4 in. 5 – 4 = 1 in. You will need to subtract 1 in. from the hand circumference measurement.
       
    • 8 in. hand circumference – 1 in. = 7 in. This means you will need to chain (7 in. x 3.75 sts) = 26.25 sts (for this pattern you will need a multiple of 6 + 2 so we will do 24 sts + 2 = 26 sts) for a total width of approximately 7 in. 
      • Calculate using the above method to find out how many stitches you need to chain. Substitute this number for X in the pattern below.
  • Measure from your knuckles to 2 in. below your wrist. This is the length you will need to complete. Substitute this number for Y in the pattern below.

Crochet Fingerless Mitts Pattern Instructions:

Ch X (based on my calculations and gauge, ch 32 for Women’s Large; ch 26 is suggested for Women’s Small and Medium for a regular fit) 

Row 1 (Foundation Row): Pick up a loop in the back bump of each chain. Complete normal RetP. (X stitches)

Row 2: [(Sk st, tss, tss in skipped st) two times, tps 2], repeat [ ] to the end of the row, work last st as normal.

Repeat Row 2 until you reach the desired length as calculated above (Y) For the sample, I continued to 7.5 in. for a hand circumference of 8 in. based on my calculations and measurements.

Bind off and leave a 12 in. tail, cut yarn. With the wrong side facing out, fold in half as shown below. Leave a 1 in. hole for the thumb and attach locking stitch markers to signify beginning and end of thumb hole. Using the leftover tail, whip stitch along the edge leaving the thumb hole open.


Leaving a 6 in. tail, cut yarn. Weave in all loose ends and turn the finished mitt right side out. Repeat instructions for a second mitt.

Tunisian crochet pillow pattern Inspiration:

A couple of months ago, I was invited to participate in a fun challenge by Hobbii Yarn, the Cozy Challenge and I had to hop on! The challenge was based on quilt and log-cabin inspired designs – and we were invited to explore and interpret this theme through our pattern designing skills.

I chose to create a Tunisian crochet pillow using Hobbii Amigo Chunky (the perfect cozy yarn with nice stitch definition) to represent the Cozy theme. I decided on these beautiful blue-green colors that worked so well together. I chose Patina Green and Petroleum Green. Initially, I did a poll to ask whether I should create separate patches to attach or do surface slip stitch and you all liked the think slip stitch idea. This pillow has a rustic look! This was my first time attempting surface slip stitch on the Tunisian full stitch.

With the 10 mm crochet hook, and the right side of the panel facing out, count to the 13th st in the foundation row and join Col B into the front loop of the stitch, make a slip knot and go into the front loop of the stitch directly above the previous stitch and sl st.

Turn the panel sideways and count to the 16th row from the foundation row, go under both loops and join Col B, go into the front loop of the next st and surface sl st. Continue working into sts across making sure they are aligned in a straight line. When you reach the vertical surface sl st lines, work under both colors and continue surface sl st across.  Count to the 19th row from the foundation row and repeat steps as above to create a second horizontal line.

Inspiration

Lately, I have been challenging myself to design patterns that can use the basic Tunisian crochet stitches and a traditional hook. I realize that not everyone has the tools needed to practice Tunisian crochet and may not be ready to invest in new hooks! I loved working with this 100% wool yarn, it gives beautiful stitch definition! I also recorded a full video tutorial to go along with the pattern so you can easily follow along! I love how closely the Tunisian crochet knit and Tunisian crochet purl stitches mimic actual knit stitches! It’s the perfect pattern to work on if you want to something that looks like knitted crochet.

  • Note: Measure your gauge swatch across unstretched and stretched. Note the two numbers and subtract to find the difference. This is how much you will need to subtract from the head circumference measurement to determine total length. 
    • Example:
      • The Gauge swatch stretched is 11 in. and unstretched it is 8.5 in. 11-8.5 = 3.5 in. You will need to subtract 3.5 in. from the head circumference measurement. 
      • 21 in. head circumference – 3.5 in. = 17.5 in. This means you will need to work the piece to a total length of 17.5 in. Substitute this number for X in the pattern below.
  • Note: Depending on stretchiness of yarn and head size of the toddler/child, you may want to decrease width by decreasing 1 or 2 stitches when you chain.

TUNISIAN CROCHET KITS

TUNISIAN CROCHET BLANKET PATTERN INSPIRATION:

The sky and clouds theme is a common one we see in nursery room decor and in the past I have designed using this surface bobble stitch technique and it turned out very cute so I thought I would attempt it with this beautiful and super soft Bernat Forever Fleece. What makes this an even more special design is that my little guy actually helped me pick these colors out at a recent trip to JoAnns!

This blanket pattern is also part of the Giftstravaganza Blog Hop hosted by Marie of Underground Crafter. This blog hop featured a new FREE design each day this month featuring handmade holiday gift ideas! My feature date is November 18th and you will be able to grab the PDF for FREE for 24 hours starting on Nov. 18th!

Inspiration

A couple of months ago, I was invited to participate in a fun challenge by Hobbii Yarn, the Japandi Challenge and I had to hop on! The challenge was based on a Japanese x Scandinavian theme – and we were invited to explore and interpret these themes through our pattern designing skills.

I chose to create a Tunisian crochet scarf using Hobbii Pearly Haze (the softest most beautiful yarn I have ever used) to represent the Japandi theme. I decided on these beautiful soft colors that worked so well together. I chose Turkish Blue, Teal, and Cream. Initially, I did a poll to ask whether you all wanted stripes or colorblock sections for the color work and a lot of people said stripes but the designer in my couldn’t let go of the idea of color blocks so I did a mix of both. The scarf has a lot of character and can be worn in many different ways! Of course I had to finish off with some fringe to complete the look!

A huge thank you to Hobbi Yarn for providing the yarn for this pattern!

Ps. If you’re on my mailing list, be sure to check your email for a special discount!

About Pattern

Fringe will be added to finish off the design. Tunisian crochet is making a comeback and this pattern will be great for beginners and advanced crocheters alike for getting familiar with the basic Tunisian crochet stitches and minimalist colorwork design. It will be the perfect addition to any winter wardrobe! This pattern is worked flat in one piece, bottom-up.

Tunisian Crochet Placemat Pattern Inspiration:

Back in May I was invited to participate in a fun challenge by Hobbii Yarn and I had to hop on! The challenge was based on the four elements – Earth, Sky, Fire, and Water – and we were invited to explore and interpret these elements through our pattern designing skills. 

I chose Earth and decided to create a minimalist kitchen set using Hobbii Friends cotton 8/8 to represent the Earth element.

A minimalist Tunisian crochet placemat pattern and coasters that can be completed by a beginner with some basic cross stitch!

I made some coasters and a matching placemat. Before I settled on this design, I played around with stitch combinations and different ways to add colorwork. The first option was Tunisian simple stitch with basic colorwork (1st pic), second option was Tunisian simple stitch and then added colorwork using cross stitch (2nd pic), and the third option was Tunisian simple stitch for the colorwork part and Honeycomb for the plain part (3rd pic). After some input and contemplation, I decided on the cross stitch version! I liked that it adds colorwork without actually doing any colorwork or carrying floats and I love that it’s a subtle minimalist touch. I absolutely love how it turned out!

Design Inspiration:

Like many of my fellow cocheters, I am waiting for Fall to arrive because I am done with this heat! Also Fall is my absolute favorite season for so many reasons. One reason is that my birthday comes in Fall! I love the crisp cool breeze in the Fall, the weather is just perfect for crocheting. I designed this pattern with that cool Autumn breeze in mind. Something to drape around you as you crunch those Fall leaves and have your Apple Cider/Pumpkin Lattes. Ps. I cannot do Pumpkin flavored anything although I don’t mind pumpkins floating around as decor! You could also wear the Autumn Diamonds Cape as you sit by a campfire/bonfire roasting some marshmallows.

This free crochet cape pattern is a collaboration for an ongoing Blog Hop hosted by Crochet Foundry Magazine. You can find a lot of amazing free patterns featured over on the blog hop here. I chose to design this gorgeous cape using the Wander Yarn because I have loved working with it in the past. I also designed a Color block Wrap last year for Furls Crochet using this yarn and I absolutely loved how it turned out. You can find the Colors of the Wind Wrap pattern here.

I knew I wanted to design something that doesn’t require a Tunisian crochet hook so I went with the Entrelac technique which I recently became hooked on (no pun intended). You can find a complete 3-part series that takes you through the technique over on my YouTube Channel which I highly recommend you watch before getting started. Check out the Tunisian Crochet Entrelac Playlist here. I have included a FULL photo tutorial as part of this pattern which you’ll find throughout the written instructions.

I added an oversized hood to give a dramatic effect although the hood is optional. You will need a Tunisian crochet hook for the hood. I also wanted to incorporate the honeycomb stitch in some way because it’s my favorite Tunisian crochet stitch. I used it to add a band to the hood and I love the contrast against the Tunisian simple stitch.

Furls Crochet Black Friday Sale ends Nov. 30th, shop now!

This design was a bit of a challenge because the Entrelac stitch is different than just straight Tunisian crochet since you are working in blocks and it gives a chevron/jagged effect to the finished project. I wanted to keep one edge straight to counter that effect so I added an entrelac edging and finished it off with a single crochet border all around to add a finished look.

I hope you love the design and love making your own Autumn Diamonds Cape! Please don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @noorsknits and Facebook @noorsknits1 if you make it!

This pattern is for an advanced beginner textured Tunisian crochet entrelac hooded cape! It’s the perfect accessory for your Fall wardrobe. Practice some basic Tunisian crochet stitches while creating a cozy cape! The best part is you don’t need a Tunisian crochet hook for the cape! You will need one to make the hood which is optional!

  • Pattern rows are Forward pass instructions. Do not turn the work.

    • The loop already on the hook at the beginning of the row counts as the first st. 
  • Return Pass: Follow the foundation row and each row with the Return Pass.
    • Return Pass: *Yarn over, pull through two loops; repeat from * until 1 loop remains on the hook. *This is different from the normal return pass, you will not be chaining 1 at the beginning of the return pass unless it is an edge block*

  • The odd-numbered Entrelac Rows are made of  blocks of Col A Thatch and the even-numbered rows are made of blocks of Col B Mahogany.

“Somewhere in the in-between, my face hidden, yet seen.
Clashing cultures, bold beliefs, virtuous values.
Speaking loudly, exactly what I mean.
I keep questioning. I keep going, despite where I’ve been.
I long for humanity, in this ultimate race.

United in equality, peace, and justice, we shall win.”
