Tunisian Short Row Scarf (crochet)

Posted on April 30, 2010. Filed under: Crochet |

First of all, the pattern for this scarf was provided as part of a paid Crochetville.org class offered by designer Kim Guzman.  If you want to purchase the pattern, or have specific questions about it, you will have to contact her at kim@crochetkim.com as it is HER pattern thus not mine to share.  PLEASE DON’T ASK ME TO SEND YOU A COPY.

Normally patterns are merely row by row instructions, this one was different, in a more narrative style, which may not be for everyone; I write patterns this way myself and now may reconsider that strategy, as now that I’ve looked at it from the “user’s” perspective, might be too frustrating for some people to stick with and finish. I DID stick with it and it DID manage to work out, but not all people would be willing to get past that initial frustration.

After multiple starts and re starts (and having to put it down for several days and work on something else for a while), I’ve finally made some progress on it and have actually completed a few pattern “wedge” repeats.

One wedge is in Tunisian Reverse stitch, which looks a little like garter stitch in knitting does, bumpy on both sides of the fabric.  The other wedge is in Tunisian Knit stitch which resembles stockinette stitch in knitting, flat on one side, bumpy on the other.  The yarn I’m using is Crystal Palace’s Mochi Plus in Lake, a green and blue variegated.  I bought the from Article Pract, a yarn shop in Oakland, CA

I found Kim’s YouTube videos on how to do these two Tunisian stitches, although it took me several viewings to “get” it finally.  Here is what the first wedge, the Tunisian Reverse Stitch wedge, looks like.

Here is what the second wedge, in Tunisian Knit Stitch (worked on top of the first wedge) looks like:
