A Tunisian Crochet Scarf Pattern for a simple yet beautifully elegant infinity scarf and a free Tunisian Crochet pattern by Nana’s Crafty Home!
I’m so excited to be participating in the Scarf of the Month Crochet Along with The Stitchin’ Mommy and Oombawka Design Crochet! My contribution for this CAL is a gorgeous Tunisian scarf with unique colorwork and classy pearl button embellishments.
This is the first time participating in this event and I was so honored to be included. Since my goal this year is to design from my stash as much as possible, I went looking for colors from my yarn stash that would mesh together really well.
This beautiful scarf will class up any outfit while keeping you warm. And the simple repetitive stitch pattern is the perfect mindless crochet project!

This scarf uses the Tunisian Full Stitch throughout but we are making it really special by changing colors before each return pass. This allows the yarn colors to mesh and fuse together creating a woven like appearance. And, because we are changing colors before each return pass there is no need to cut yarn – just drop the current working yarn and pull in the other color to work your return pass. That means no additional ends to weave in!
Tunisian crochet is often considered a combination of crochet and knitting. This is because it uses a crochet hook, but requires you to hold all of your stitches (or loops) on your hook in the same way you do in knitting. For this reason, you’ll need a long crochet hook or a hook with a cable attachment to accommodate the number of stitches in your Tunisian crochet project.
Tunisian crochet involves a forward pass and a return pass where the work is never turned, and you are looking at the Right Side (RS) of your project the entire time. The forward pass and return pass are counted as one row.
The Tunisian Full Stitch is a great place to start if you are new to Tunisian Crochet. A very basic, beginner friendly stitch. And, I have a complete photo and video tutorial for you that will help you get started! (Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get notified whenever I post a new video).
Once you have completed the main section of your scarf to the length desired you will add a few rows of standard single crochet stitches. You could switch up to a standard crochet hook but I just continued using my Tunisian hook for those rows. Then you will work around the outside edge of your scarf with a round of single crochet. This will clean up any messy ends you may have from dropping and pulling in your yarn strands from your color changes.
The Decorative Pearl Button Assortment are decorative and completely optional. I had purchased a Decorative Pearl Button Assortment for my Christmas Tree Decor Stands last year from Amazon and had some more on hand. I think they matched up beautifully with the pearlescent look of the Landscape Fusion yarn.
