7 Knit and Crochet PatternsScarf, Wrap or Throw
As a child I was taught how to do the Afghan Stitch which is a variation of the current Tunisian Crochet. We would use a basic washable wool or acrylic and make strips. We would sew them together and then embroider a design on top. Today we create wearable art using the new Tunisian Crochet style of crochet and we have a blast playing with yarns and textures and colors.
To create your very own design, I suggest that you select 6-8-10 different yarns. 1 ball of each will make a scarf or wrap. Two of each will make a Throw. Make sure that the yarns are about the same thicknesses or fi nd a thin silk/mohair to blend with things to thicken them up. We will be using a large hand carved crochet hook and the look will be loose, simple, easy and fun.
Get your yarns and lets get started. It is easy and fun and you just need to sit back, relax and play.
STEP 1: With fi rst yarn, make a stitch and put on hook. Make a chain, loosely but evenly to the desired length. We suggest 60” single length or 100sts for double length for scarf. 64” for wrap 60/70sts and 48” for throw. +/-90sts.
STEP 2: To create Tunisian, you will be picking up stitches on one row. Normally you would go into the “v” part of the front of each stitch. For this class, we will turn the chain over and work with the backside of each V. There is a horizontal stitch that runs through the backside of each V. Skip fi rst stitch and put hook under this stitch, wrap yarn around hook and pick up a stitch. Repeat this across the row picking up one stitch for each chain. Count the number of stitches and mark that number:___________sts.
STEP 3: The next step is to work the return row which will draw the yarn back through what is on the hook. This is your opportunity to change fi bers or work each of your yarns in multiple rows of the same yarn. Wrap the yarn over the mouth of the hook and pull through one stitch. *Wrap yarn around the mouth of the hook and pull through 2 stitches*. Repeat from *to* across the row to the end. Make sure end stitch is tight and fi rm.
STEP 4: Now that the fi rst repeat is done, you must prepare for your next row which means you must pick up stitches. To do this, place the mouth of the hook under the vertical bar that is present on the front of each stitch. Put hook under fi rst bar, wrap yarn around mouth and pick up fi rst stitch. Repeat for every stitch across the row. At the end of the row, make sure to pick up vertical bar of front and back to close any gap as shown below. Count number of stitches to make sure the same number are on the hook as before.
At the end of the row, repeat Step #3 to come back. You will keep repeating Rows 3 and 4 until the very end of de- sired length. Play with colors. Play with fi bers.
(A) You can change yarns as an ABC by working one direction with A, Joining B and coming back. Join C and set up the next row. All three are attached and you can simply alternate between them.
(B) You can work 4 rows of each yarn and then change yarns.
(C) You can work each yarn until you run out and then join another yarn.
(D) You can work as far as you want and pull yarn from bag and change freely leaving tails as part of the design for a true free from Tunisian piece.
Continue as you choose until desired length. Work the next section to fi nish off.
Make sure that you are ready for Step 4 row or set up row. Put crochet hook under Vertical Bar, wrap yarn around hook and slip through stitch on hook to create a bind off or fi nish stitch. Repeat this across the top making sure to keep tension even so top does not gather. Remember to catch the complete front and back of vertical at end of row and wrap yarn over mouth and pull through.
6403 Maidenhair Wrap designed by Christine Nissley for Prism Arts, Inc ©2011
One Size: approx 13” x 60” Materials: 1 Delicato #6 needle; we suggest lace needles as Delicato has no give. Stitch Markers Special instructions: sk2p = Slip 1 st, k2tog, pass slipped st over Wrap: CO 73 stitches Beginning Border: Row 1: K1, ssk, k3, yo; (k1, yo, k3, sk2p, k3, yo) 6 times; end k1, yo, k3, k2tog, k1. Row 2 and all even rows: Purl. Row 3: K1, ssk, k2, yo, k1; (k2, yo, k2, sk2p, k2, yo, k1) 6 times; end k2, yo, k2, k2tog, k1. Row 5: K1, ssk, k1, yo, k2; (k3, yo, k1, sk2p, k1, yo, k2) 6 times; end k3, yo, k1, k2tog, k1. Row 7: K1, ssk, yo, k3; (k4, yo, sk2p, yo, k3) 6 times; end k4, yo, k2tog, k1. Row 8: Repeat row 2. Work rows 1-8 twice (total of 16 rows). Transition rows: Row 1: Knit. Row 2: Purl. Row 3: K2tog, yo, k2tog across, k1 Row 4: Purl Row 5: Knit, increasing 1 st—74. Row 6: Purl
Shawl Body: Nupps are 7 stitches knit into one stitch: (k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1). They are then purled together on the next row. Alternatively, you can use a crochet hook instead of the RH needle and pull a last loop through all sts, placing this st onto RH needle. On next row, treat it as a normal stitch. Myra Wood has a great video tutorial on You Tube showing how to do this. Row 1: K2, ssk, k7, yo, k1, yo, k2tog, k1, pm, k2; *sk2p, k5, (yo, k1) 3 times, yo, k5, sk2p*; pm, p2, pm; repeat** once; end k2, pm, k1, ssk, yo, k1, yo, k7, k2tog, k2. Row 2 and all even rows: Purl to marker, k 2, p to end. Row 3: K2, ssk, k6, yo, k1, yo, nupp, k2tog, k3; *sk2p, k4, (yo, k1) twice, nupp, k1, yo, k1, yo, k4, sk2p*; p2, repeat** once; end k3, ssk, nupp, yo, k1, yo, k6, k2tog, k2. Row 5: K2, ssk, k5, yo, k1, yo, nupp, k1, k2tog, k3; *sk2p, k3, (yo, k1) twice, nupp, k1, nupp, k1, yo, k1, yo, k3, sk2p,* p2, repeat**; end k3, ssk, k1, nupp, yo, k1, yo, k5, k2tog, k2. Row 7: K2, ssk, k4, yo, k1, yo, nupp, k2, k2tog, k3; *sk2p, k2, yo, k1, yo, k7, yo, k1, yo, k2, sk2p*; p2; repeat** once; end k3, ssk, k2, nupp, yo, k1, yo, k4, k2tog, k2. Row 9: K2, ssk, k3, yo, k1, yo, nupp, k3, k2tog, k3; *sk2p, (k1, yo) twice; k9, yo, k1, yo, k1, sk2p*; p2, repeat** once; end k3, ssk, k3, nupp, yo, k1, yo, k3, k2tog, k2. Row 11: K2, ssk, k2, yo, k1, yo, nupp, k4, k2tog, k3; *sk2p, yo, k1, yo, k11, yo, k1, yo, sk2p*; p2, repeat** once; end k3, ssk, k4, nupp, yo, k1, yo, k2, k2tog, k2. Row 12: Repeat Row 2.
Chrissie delivers another great beginner’s piece, with a nice introduction to nupps. Smooth, silky Delicato is perfect for a
light-weight wrap that floats on a breeze. There is enough yardage to make the wrap several repeats longer.

Materials Yarn: Bernat Mosaic (100% acrylic; 209 yds [191 m] per 3.5 oz [100 g]); #44200 Ambrosia, 3 balls.
Hook: E/4 (3.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge.
GauGe 13 sts and 7 rows in pattern = 3" (7.5 cm).
Finished size 18" (45.5 cm) wide × 17" (43 cm) deep.
Note C This pattern is based on the Flower Cut-Out Strips bottom-up edging (see page 54).
Pompeii Möbius These strips of crochet fabric have a pretty flower centered in the rows. The addition of large chains at the beginning of each row is an important design feature to join the strip into a spiraling fabric. The edging is worked seamlessly right onto the Möbius in one continuous round. Using a long-striping yarn adds visual interest and mystique about the construction, but the Möbius would look gorgeous in a solid color, too.

Rep Rows 2–7 until strip measures 36" (91.5 cm) long, ending with Row 7 of pattern.
Refer to Assembly Diagram on page 4.
To form twisted ring of Möbius, fold strip in half so Row 1 meets last row, twist Row 1 one half rotation, so that end of Row 1 meets end of last row.
Joining Rows: Rep Rows 2–7, except at the beg of each even-numbered row, replace ch 5 with the foll: (ch 2, sl st in adjacent ch-5 sp, ch 2).
Rep Joining Rows until Möbius is 4 strips wide, ending with Row 7 of pattern.
Last Row: Ch 5, dc7tog (working in every other st across row), sl st in adjacent ch-5 sp. Do not fasten off.
Edging Refer to Stitch Diagram B on page 4.
RNote: Because a Möbius has a continuous edge, the edging is worked in 1 rnd, but completes both the top and bottom edges of the Möbius in the 1 rnd. The edging is worked back and forth on itself in 1 rnd.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, 4 sc in same ch-5 sp, *5 sc in next ch-5 sp, ch 10, sl st in side of last sc worked, work 4 more sc in same ch-5 sp, 5 sc in next ch-5 sp, turn, 9 sc in top of last ch-10 lp, turn, 9 sc in bottom of ch-10 lp, sl st in side of last sc worked in ch-5 sp, 4 more sc in same ch-5 sp; rep from * around, sl st in first sc to join.
