Have you ever tried to make a tunisian crochet project? It’s not as hard as you might think! This tunisian crochet cardigan is the perfect beginner project.

I designed this tunisian crochet cardigan with beginners in mind. I wanted you to have something beautiful to wear that wasn’t super hard and overwhelming to make.

The tunisian crochet coffee cardigan features the tunisian knit stitch, basic color block striping, and ribbing along the hemlines at both the body panels and the sleeve cuffs.

Tunisian Cardigan Pattern Notes:

I highly recommend you watch part 1 of the video tutorial to see exactly how to complete the stitch, work the ribbing and change your colors seamlessly.

video is linked below

This design is worked in 5 total panels each beginning at the bottom and being worked upwards.

You also have the option of adding a collar up and around the front two panels and neck area.
This is explained in the part 2 video along with how to seam the garment with an invisible seam.

Finishing Your Tunisian Crochet Cardigan

This is the fun part. The part where all of your hard work has paid off and you’re almost ready to start sporting your newest make!

For this design, I’ve opted to create a video covering all the seaming. Often times I find beginners struggle with the words of “how to seam” so I wanted to alleviate any questions and simply show you by doing it myself in a video format.

The seaming video can be found in the description of PART 1 of the coffee cardigan which is linked at the beginning of this post.

I hope you enjoy making this design and be sure to tag me on social media so I can see your finished coffee cardigans @yarnhookneedles
