Most Tunisian crochet stitches are closed, soft, and warm. So, they are particularly good for making cozy accessories for Fall and Winter, including scarves and cowls.

Crocheting a scarf with Tunisian crochet is perfect for both beginners and more advanced crocheters.

If you’re a beginner, a scarf gives you the possibility of practicing the basic crochet stitches while creating something that you can actually wear or gift to a dear one. And we all know that with gift season coming soon, an extra handmade gift is always useful to have ready in the closet!

For experienced Tunisian crocheters, scarves are always quick and relaxing projects to crochet in front of the TV while attacking the yarn stash or using leftover yarn from larger projects.

In this post, I collected more than 27 free crochet patterns for scarves and cowls using different Tunisian crochet stitches. You’ll find all sorts of scarf patterns, from easy, beginner-friendly patterns to more advanced ones.

What Tunisian Crochet Stitch is BEst for Scarves?

All Tunisian crochet stitches are good for scarves, from solid to lacy, open stitches.

If you’d like to try a new stitch for a scarf, take a look at my Tunisian crochet stitch tutorials HERE.

Do you need a special crochet hook for making a Tunisian crochet scarf?

For most Tunisian crochet scarves, you’ll need to use a long, Tunisian crochet hook. Your hook should be long enough to accommodate the entire width of your scarf on the hook.

To make it easier for you to navigate through this post, I grouped the scarves in three main paragraphs:
