The tunisian plaid shawl is equally suiting to (advanced) beginners and pro’s of tunisian crochet. It is worked in tunisian simple stitc, which isn’t only famous for allowing astonishing color experiences, but in its simplicity, it has a meditational effect to set your mind free.

With frequent color changes but only few loose ends, you can enjoy the easygoing stitch pattern, while your eyes will never get bored on this crochet journey. At the end, you’ll get an eyecatching yet unobtrusive favorite accessoire to wrap in. Provided with a single hole for head or arm, the plaid shawl makes an incredibly versatile garment for every occasion and every season.

In this pattern, you’ll also learn how to join-as you-go invisibly in tunisian crochet, a variation of tunisian entrelac.

If you work the shawl in baa ram ewe’s titus, as suggested, you’ll need 2 hanks of each of the 3 colorways to be on the safe side and avoid the risk to run out of yarn.
