Hybrid Tunisian Cowl

I was absolutely delighted to be invited to be a part of the Furls 2020 Blog Hop! When deciding on a pattern I knew it had to be Tunisian Crochet, I’m completely in love with my Furls Tunisian Crochet Hooks.

The idea that I had was to combine basic Tunisian and standard crochet to create the perfect cowl for the end of winter, its soft and warm but not too thick, ideal for those days that are chilly but not face-freezing cold.

The Hybrid Tunisian Cowl is super easy to adjust, you can change the height and the length to completely customize it to your liking, you can even make it extra long and turn it into an infinity scarf!



  • ch – Chain
  • tss – Tunisian Simple Stitch
  • sc – Single Crochet
  • scblo – Single Crochet in Back Loop Only


Instructions for Tunisian Simple Stitch Rows are for the forward pass, the return pass will always be: yarn over, pull through 1 loop, *yarn over, pull through 2 loops* (repeat from * to * across)


Begin by chaining 20 (or any number of chains to change height of cowl).

ROW 1-3

TSS across. Return Pass.


ch 1, sc in the spaces between each post from the row below, ch 1, turn.


sc in each stitch across, turn.

Repeat Rows 1 – 5 until your cowl measures approximately 22 inches long (or desired length).

Slipstitch ends of cowl together.

Without fastening off, ch 1, sc in the top of each row along top edge of cowl, slst to beginning sc, ch 1. scblo in each stitch around, slst to beginning sc and fasten off.

Turn Cowl around and fasten on to the bottom edge at the seam, repeat the two finishing rows along bottom edge of cowl.

Weave in your ends and wear your new cowl!

    1. I’d love to be able to provide videos but unfortunately I can’t afford the necessary equipment, maybe one day!

  1. Beautiful! Putting it next on my project list. Is the pattern written for worsted or dk weight? The Whims Merino link offers both. It probably works great with either, but I’m curious about which you used. My guess is worsted…
