Pattern notes

  1. This pattern is written in US terms.
  2. Starting Row 2, the first tss will always line up on top of the tfs from the previous row. For all other stitches of the row, a tss will line up on top of a tps and a tps will line up on top of a tss.

Instructions

Foundation Row

FPChain 2. Make the foundation row stitches in the back loops of the chain. 
You will have 2 loops on the hook at the end of the FP.
RPch 1, (yo, pull through 2 loops on hook) across until one loop remains on hook.

Row 1

FPfs, tfs, ls [3 sts]
RPSame as the Foundation Row.

Row 2

FPfs, tfs, tss, ls [4 sts]
RPSame as the Foundation Row.

Row 3

FPfs, tfs, (tss, tps) * repeat until the end of the row, ls [The number of stitches is one more than the previous row]
RPSame as the Foundation Row.

Rows 4 – one row before the last row

Repeat Row 3 until you have achieved the desired length of the shawl. Mine has 98 rows.

Last Row

FPRepeat Row 3 (Bind off). Cut yarn and weave in ends. 

This is the same as the previous row except that you will make a slip stitch (or a single crochet stitch depending on the bind off method you choose) every time you pick up a loop on your hook. 
RPThere is no reverse pass.

Blocking

I recommend blocking your shawl after you have completed it.

  1. Dear Arunima,

    Your pattern is very beautiful and I think try it.
    I like very much the tunisian crochet too.
    But I have made only little (or less) pieces with tunisian crochet and don’t know how practicable this long shawl with a 30 cm (11.5 “) tunisian hook.
    I would like very much if you write me, please!
    Best regards
    Marianne

    1. Hello Marianne,

      I am sorry for the late response. I think it is possible to get all the stitches needed for this shawl on a 11.5″ hook, but it will depend on the yarn you choose and how big you would like your shawl to be. You could potentially try and make a swatch with 100 stitches and see if you can get those on the hook comfortably. If yes, then you should be able to make this shawl with that hook. Please let me know if you still have questions.

  2. I’m also wondering how long of a Tunisian hook I need. Do I need one with a cord?

    1. Hello Heather,

      I strongly recommend a hook with a cord for this shawl but it is not required. I only say this because as the shawl grows, the number of stitches on each row increases and the shawl gets heavier. If you have a hook without a cord, it might get difficult to make the shawl towards the end. But, if you have hooks without a cord, just try to make a swatch with about 100 stitches and see if you can fit all of them on the hook at once. If yes, you should be able to make it with the hook you have. If you still have questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

  3. How many yards in the “cake” that you are using? Shawl is beautiful! Since I’m new at this all these abbreviations are hard to follow: could you list the fs,tfs, ls mean.. Thank you
