The rectangular shape lends itself perfectly to the 2-row Tunisian stitch pattern. The shawl is worked side to side lengthwise with no shaping.

The Yarn

Craft Yarn Council icon 4- medium weight yarn

For best results, use a long-color-changing worsted weight yarn. Shorter color changes will hide the beauty of the stitch pattern.

I used Caron Crystal Cakes, which is available seasonally from Michaels.

Here are some suggested color-changing yarns to try:

Universal Yarn Deluxe Stripes
Lion Brand Mandala Ombré
Lion Brand Ferris Wheel
Hobii Manaya

Of course, you might also choose a solid yarn in any color you wish!

The shawl measures 17″ [43 cm] x 66″ [168 cm] long and took just one 634 yard [580 meter] yarn cake. If you want to make it longer or wider, you’ll need additional yarn.

The Pattern

The pattern is written using American crochet terminology. The Tunisian Fans stitch pattern is written out and fully charted. Video tutorials for the stitch are included for both right- and left-handed crocheters.

The pattern has been tech edited and test crochet for accuracy. The shawl is sized for adults, but can easily be adapted to fit other sizes.
