Introducing the “Wavy Tunisian Knit Cowl”

Learn Tunisian Knit, Purl, and Full Stitches

Learn the Tunisian crochet Knit Stitch, Purl Stitch, and Full stitch in this cowl that creates Vertical Traveling Waves. The ripples are made with a series of increases and decreases. It is an 8 stitch repeat with 2 main alternating sections of 5 rows each. You can work as many sections as you like to create any type of item you like whether that be a scarf, wrap, or a cowl as we will make here. Stay tuned for the sideways version of this pattern coming out next week: “Sideways Wavy Tunisian Knit Hat Cowl Set.”
