Then surface bobble stitches are added using worsted weight yarn and metallic crochet thread to give some fun texture. The whole project can be completed with a regular crochet hook making it the perfect project for Tunisian crochet patterns for beginners!
This pattern uses a few Tunisian crochet techniques. Use the following video tutorials as needed. You can follow along with my Tunisian crochet tutorial for beginners below.

Repeat the above instructions 4 more times for a total of 5 panels.
Take two panels and hold them together with right sides facing out and sc panels together using Vel-luxe yarn. Continue joining in this way until all 5 panels are joined together.
Sc around the square with Vel-Luxe yarn – (sc, ch1, sc) into the corners.
Refer to this video tutorial for how to complete the surface bobble stitch.
First and Fifth Panel: Holding Jeans yarn and Metallic crochet thread together. Make bobbles lengthwise.
