This Tunisian crochet lace pattern pleasantly edges itself as you work each offset group of rows. It is crocheted with no shaping, then seamed into a ring scarf (a.k.a. Snood, Shoulder Cowl Wrap, and Eternity scarf).
The seam of the pink fingering weight one is disguised with a few rows of seed beads and turns this easy shape into a special gift, especially if you use cashmere yarn as shown here!

I developed this lacy Tunisian crochet stitch pattern myself. If it seems familiar to you, it’s probably due to how Tunisian eyelets mimic the look of bunches of chain strands in a traditional “Bowties” stitch pattern of regular crochet.

Skill Level: Intermediate. This pattern features a mix of familiar and less common Tunisian crochet stitches. I’ve kept pattern abbreviations to a minimum.

It’s best if you have used at least one Tunisian crochet pattern for the Beginner or Easy skill level first. Test yourself with my short checklist to see if you’re ready for an Intermediate-level pattern.

Yarns: Use one that lists a needle or hook range of B/1/2.25 mm--G/7/4.5 mm, even though you’ll be using a 5.5 mm Tunisian crochet hook. You can also use an even thicker yarn and larger hook size too. Give it a chance by blocking it a bit--it only takes a few minutes with a misting bottle.

Beads, optional: Size 6/0 round beads (a.k.a. “E beads” or “large” seed beads): 176 beads used for pink version, to be strung onto yarn later.

US terms are followed by UK equivalents in brackets. Pattern abbreviations, and the instructions for how to do each special Tunisian stitch, can be found in a pink sidebar on every page of this pattern.
