Croton Petra Cowl

A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern



It has been forever since I have shared a Tunisian Crochet pattern. A whole year in fact. I decided I needed to publish a new one stat. I wanted a cowl that was lacy and chunky at the same time. I also gave it a marled look by crochet two colors at the same time. It gives it a striking effect that makes the stitches stand out. I put this pattern at an intermediate level only because it is a Tunisian crochet pattern.  It only uses basic stitches and it is a 3 row repeat, so it is easy to get into a rhythm with it. I hope you enjoy.
