Learn Tunisian Crochet CAL
The Learn Tunisian Crochet CAL is here! I worked super hard to get 12 Tunisian squares typed up and videoed for you to learn all about Tunisian Crochet! This is something that I have been thinking about for quite a while and now that it’s here, I wonder where all the time went?
Why Did I Pick Tunisian Crochet?
I really like Tunisian Crochet and noticed that a lot of people in our Facebook Community group had a desire to learn. Our Friendship Blanket CAL went over so well that I decided…now is the time! As soon as the Friendship Blanket CAL is wrapped up, we’ll be starting right into the Learn Tunisian Crochet CAL. This one will last the month of May. You will learn 12 Tunisian stitches as well as basic Tunisian techniques. Also learn the zig-zag join (which Helen used for the Friendship CAL), and then bordering it all up!
How it works:
- One new square will be released every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday until the end of May.
- Each square’s pattern will be available on its own blog post, but you can buy a bundle if you don’t want to wait!
- I will show you what border I put around each square, then I will share how I joined the squares and the border
- The most recent square will be the first on in the list below – under this will be all of the squares that have been released in order.
- If you cannot wait for the squares to be released and would like to get them all in one go a bundle is available for $6 using the button below. This works out at only $0.46 per pattern!
- Note: you have 28 days from purchase to raise any issues.

Worsted/Aran/#4 weight yarn–Brava Worsted by Knit Picks in Cornflower, Tidepool, Alfalfa, and mint. I was able to get 2 squares out of each skein. As there are 12 squares, if you are using the same yarn, you will need 3 of each. I also used Brava Worsted Speckle in Tidal for borders and joining.
You can find Brava Worsted at WeCrochet
Fiber: 100% premium acrylic
Crochet Gauge: 11-14 sc = 4″ on I-K hooks (5.5mm-6.5mm)
Machine was and dry
I used a 6.5mm Tunisian hook from Furls and also one from Love To Crochet–a set I bought on Amazon.
First Things First…
If you don’t know how to do Tunisian Crochet, then I suggest you click here for the basics of Tunisian. This post provides photo tutorial as well as a link to the accompanying video on how to get started with learning Tunisian crochet.
Once you have that under your belt, you can check back here for each new square release.
The CAL will officially start May 2nd, 2021. The Basics blog post will release the same day as this post (April 23rd, 2021). This should give you a week to get your materials.
