Tunisian Crochet Bobble Shawl Pattern

Tunisian Crochet Bobble Shawl Pattern

This Tunisian crochet bobble shawl has a luxurious look and feel to it. Using a yarn with some sparkle gives it that look and the softness of the yarn makes you feel like a million bucks. You’ll be warm, cozy, and stylish.

Have you ever ordered one of Lion Brand’s Santa Sacks before? They release them every once in a while and I decided to purchase one for me and Hannah.

And let me tell you, they did not disappoint!

In the first sack I ordered, three skeins of a yarn I had never worked with before were included: Boogie Nights.

Lion Brand Boogie Nights yarn

The instant I put my hands on this yarn, I saw a shawl or scarf in its future.

Put a little boogie-woogie in your project with a yarn that doesn’t slack on sparkle! This chainette-constructed yarn alternates short flecks of metallic with brushed polyester.

After I gave a sneak peek of the shawl on Instagram, I had quite a few people ask me if it was scratchy. Sparkly yarns tend to be, which makes them not very comfortable against the skin.

I’m happy to report this one is not scratchy at all.

It’s very soft and really enjoyable to wear.

The Tunisian Stitches

There are two stitches you need to learn for this pattern, as well as one easy-to-learn technique.

Here they are:

Tunisian Simple Stitch

I apologize for the dark video. This was the very first tutorial I ever shot and it makes me cringe a little. But it’s also fun to see how far I have come. I still have a lot of improvement to do!

One of my favorite patterns, the Autumn Ombre Scarf, uses only this stitch, but with color changes before the Return Pass. The pattern is free if you’d like to go check it out.

The Tunisian Simple Stitch is one of the first stitches you’ll want to know when learning how to do Tunisian crochet.

I don’t have a video tutorial for this (yet), but most people have said the explanation was all they needed. If you know how to do a regular crochet bobble, it’s the same basics of the stitch.

Tunisian Bobble Stitch: (yo, insert hook into next stitch as for Tunisian knit stitch, pull up a loop, yo, pull through next 2 loops on hook) 5 times, yarn over, pull through next 5 loops on hook.

Here’s a close-up look at this stitch.

The technique I was talking about that you’ll need to learn is to increase on one side of the shawl. This shawl is asymmetrical, so we only increase it on one side.

To increase, you simply yarn over before you do your first Tunisian Simple Stitch. That’s it! Easy peasy.
