This is a scarf that I started during Ramadan with the intention of donating and it fits perfectly with the Crochet for a Cause theme. Crochet for a Cause is an event hosted by Ashley of Edythblayn where every Monday two scarf/hat patterns are released and the pattern PDFs are available for free throughout the week. This event will run throughout summer so you can grab all of the patterns and get some good charity crochet in! The goal is to have a good pile of handmade goodies ready to donate at the end of summer!
This week my Tunisian Giving Scarf pattern is the featured pattern – where you can get the pattern PDF for FREE from June 29th to July 5th, 2020 (11:59pm EST)!

For this Tunisian crochet spin on a crochet infinity scarf, I used hand-dyed yarn from Fatima of Aquarius Make in this gorgeous variegated colorway with beautiful neutrals. Fatima is an amazing indie yarn dyer and she has a shop update and sale going on right now, make sure to go check her shop out below.
For this pattern, I used one cake of light 3 DK weight yarn, 75% Superwash Merino Wool and 25% Nylon approximately 246 yards.
You will need a 5.0 mm Tunisian crochet hook or a 5.0 mm straight crochet hook that is at least 6 in. in length. I got creative and used my Clover knitting needlepoint protector as a stopper to turn it into a straight hook. You can check out my full review of the Clover Takumi Interchangeable Tunisian crochet hook set here.
About the Tunisian Honeycomb Stitch:
If you have never tried the Tunisian crochet honeycomb stitch, you’re in for a treat! This stitch is my favorite of all the Tunisian crochet stitches because it looks good on just about any weight and type of yarn! I have a video tutorial taking you through how to do it here.
Ch – Chain
Tss – Tunisian Simple Stitch
Tps – Tunisian Purl Stitch
22 sts over 15 rows for a 4 x 4 in. square in Honeycomb Stitch
This pattern is for a reversible one-skein textured Tunisian crochet infinity scarf. It’s the perfect mindless project to practice Tunisian crochet and learn a new stitch!
- This pattern uses a few Tunisian crochet techniques. Use the following video tutorials as needed:
- Pattern rows are Forward pass instructions.
- The following instructions are implied:
- The loop already on the hook at the beginning of the row counts as the first st.
- Always Tunisian simple stitch in the last st of the row, being sure to work under both loops of the st.
- Return Pass: Follow the foundation row and each row with the Return Pass in the same color unless a color change is needed.
- Return Pass Instructions: Ch 1, *yarn over, pull through two loops; repeat from * until 1 loop remains on the hook.
Sl st: Slip stitch
Tss: Tunisian simple stitch
Tps: Tunisian purl stitch
RetP: Return Pass -Explained above
Row 1 (Foundation Row): Pick up a loop in the back bump of each chain. Complete normal RetP. (30 sts)
Row 2: (Tss, Tps)* Rep * across. (30 sts)
Row 3: (Tps, Tss)* Rep * across. (30 sts)
This is what the pattern repeat should look like after a few rows:
Continue repeat till you’ve reached your desired length. For the scarf pictured, the total length was 32 inches (16 in. doubled/after looping). It could easily be doubled over as a cowl as seen below.
Bind off and do not cut, keep remaining yarn as a tail. Fold scarf in half, align stitches, and whip stitch ends together or join using your preferred method of seaming to form a loop. Weave in ends as neatly as possible and cut yarn.

This scarf would make the perfect #makefoyoself project. What is #makefoyoself you ask? Continue reading to find out!
A couple of years ago, I really felt burnt out by constantly making things for others and for my business and needed a project just for myself to slow down and enjoy the craft again. This is when I came up with my hashtag #makefoyoself which encourages fellow makers to take a breather and make a mindless project just for themselves. You can check out the hashtag by clicking below! The project doesn’t necessarily have to be a project for yourself, it can be an item you’re making for donation too. The Tunisian Giving Scarf is a great first project to start with since it’s an easy crochet pattern and works up super fast!
