Tunisian Fair Isle Cowl

Of all the entire Tunisian Series, this was the project that hit the top of my most satisfied and sense of pride within myself. I have always wanted to do this but knitting is too hard for me. I was finally able to accomplish this look and not give up my hook.

This is definitely one of the hottest projects for me to personally do one in colours that mean something for me. It takes a bit of getting used to carrying yarn but you cannot deny how amazing the final look is.

    Hi, Mikey! The link to the pattern links to a Fair Isle cowl, not the hat. Can someone correct and/or put the proper link here? Many thanks for all you do!!

    • I am not sure I understand, this article is for the Fair Isle Cowl. Which hat are you hoping to find?

    Non-crocheter/knitter here. What is the cross-ethnicity between Tunisian and Fair Isle?

    • Sandy

      Fair Isle is simply the title of the project, not a technique. It’s made using the Tunisian method of crochet.

    Great tutorial. Do you have a tutorial for the double crochet edging? I’m always battling the curly edge…

    Mikey, you were right this is not a beginner project. I’m just starting it and finding it a challenge. One thing I have noticed though is that I find it helpful knowing how to knit because I know what the stitches should look like and their construction.

    Hi, great tutorial. I do have a question for you. I’ve actually been working on my own Tunisian knit stitch project but I’m having an issue with the stitch where the color change is.


    As you can see in the picture, on the right hand side the front bar is getting pulled forward and looks oddly prominent. The left hand side looks much nicer and as it should. I believe I am putting my hook in the correct spot, is there anything you can think of that would cause this problem? I tried tightening my stitches and that didn’t seem to have an effect.

    I actually found your tutorial because I was trying to find answers regarding this issue and I noticed yours doesn’t have that problem so I must be doing something off.

    Any advice you have is appreciated!
