I am so excited to share this new Tunisian Colorblock Scarf pattern with you. Lately, I have been trying to expand my skills with the tunisian crochet technique and I thought it would be fun to create a colorful and beginner-friendly scarf pattern for you all!
If you have never tried the tunisian technique before, don’t fret! I promise you, it is a lot EASIER than it looks. If you already know the basics of traditional crochet, then you may find starting tunisian a little easier. The stitch I chose for this pattern is called the Tunisian Half Double Crochet stitch. It creates such a beautiful and interesting texture!
The yarn I chose for this pattern is from Yarnspirations and it is from their Caron X Pantone line. This yarn has become one of my favorites to work with. I used this yarn in my Cobblestone Beanie pattern as well. I knew I wanted to add a lot of color to this pattern. I love that the Pantone yarn already puts coordinating shades together so you don’t have to! I just love the pale pink and how it combines with the grey and purple so well.
Another reason I love this yarn is that you can buy a few different colorways and mix and match them to create something so unique and creative!
You will need three skeins of the Pantone yarn for this pattern. You can choose to go with all the same colorway like me, or you can mix it up. The color in the pictures is called Wistfully.
You may have also noticed that I chose to take pictures of this scarf as both a traditional scarf and an infinity scarf. I could not decide what I liked better! I wanted to show both options for you 🙂 If you choose to make it an infinity scarf, just sew the short ends together to form a circle. You can even make it a mobius look if you choose!
I really hope you like this pattern. Tunisian crochet is such a fun technique that I know you will enjoy. If you would like to check out some of my other patterns using this technique, click the links below.

Tunisian Crochet Colorblock Scarf Pattern
- Scarf is worked as a long rectangle that can either be left as a traditional scarf, or sewn together to create an infinity scarf.
- The forward pass and the return pass will always be the same throughout the entire pattern.
- I would suggest watching the VIDEO tutorial first, so you can become familiar with the Tunisian Half Double Crochet stitch.
- Please take note that in the video tutorial Mikey chooses to make a Ch.1 every time he starts a forward pass. In my pattern, I chose NOT to do this. I found it created too much slack on the right side of the scarf.
- Watch this VIDEO tutorial to learn how to bind off.
3 Skeins of Caron X Pantone yarn
6.5mm Tunisian/Afghan Hook
Yarn Over (yo)
Tunisian Half Double Crochet (thdc)
Finished measurements of the scarf are approx. 69in (L) X 6.5in (W)
Turn chain over, you will be working in the back bump of the chain.
Foundation Forward Pass – Yo, insert hook in back bump of 2nd ch from hook, yo and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook) Continue to repeat this in every back bump of chain until you reach the end of the chain. (35 loops on hook)
Return Pass – Yo, pull through one loop on hook. Then, yo and pull through three loops on hook. Continue to yo and pull through three loops on hook until to have one loop remaining on hook. One row of thdc made!
Forward Pass – Yo, insert hook from right to left through both vertical bars, yo and pull up a loop (3 loop on hook). Continue to yo and work through each set of vertical bars until you come to the end. Remember to work last stitch at the end!
Return Pass – You will work the return pass exactly the same as above by yo pull through one loop on the hook, then yo and pull through three loops on the hook until you have one loop remaining on the hook.
You will work the Forward Pass followed by the Return Pass for the remainder of the scarf.
HOW TO CHANGE COLORS
You will change colors during the Return Pass when the last three remaining loops are on the hook. Here is a VIDEO tutorial. In this tutorial, Toni is working the Simple Stitch so she has only two loops remaining on her hook but the concept is the same. Go to 1:13 in the video.
Take the new yarn and make a loop. Place the loop on your hook and pull the new color through the last three remaining loops. See pic below
Now you have a new color to work with! Continue working the Forward Pass and the Return Pass throughout the rest of the scarf pattern.
To bind off, insert hook through the first two vertical bars, yo and pull loop through the two vertical bars and the second loop on the hook. Essentially you are making a slip stitch. Complete this all the way across the row. Bind off. There is a video tutorial link in the “notes” section above showing how to bind off.
