Wildflowers Tunisian Crochet Square & Stitch Tutorial

In Bloom Spring Blanket CAL

The Wildflowers Tunisian Crochet Square was part of the In Bloom Spring Blanket CAL hosted by BearRye.

The theme of the CAL is In Bloom, and it wants to be a celebration of spring, life, blooms, and flowers. For this CAL, all the squares are 8” by 8” (20 cm).

All the patterns are free to see on each designer’s blog. Check the main CAL page here to find all the links!

Yarn & Colors

Claire over at BearRye arranged for WeCrochet to provide us with the yarn needed for our square. So, by a democratic vote, the yarn chosen was Mighty Stitch by Knit Picks.

Mighty Stitch is a worsted weight yarn, very soft and machine-washable. It comes in many different and beautiful colors, which you can choose from. However, we all settled for colors Alfalfa, Ivy, Mulberry, Wisteria, Fairytale, Bubblegum, Celestial, Sky, Cream, Oyster, and Canary.

To make the Wildflowers Tunisian Crochet Square, you will need at least three different colors: one for the background, one green for the stem of the flowers, and at least another color for making the flowers.

Tunisian Foundation Row

This pattern assumes that you already know how to crochet the Tunisian foundation row. If you need instructions for it, you can use my step-by-step tutorial on how to make a foundation row.

Standard Tunisian Return

Yo, pull through the first loop on your hook, *yo, pull through two loops*. Repeat in between * for all the loops until you will only have one remaining loop on your hook.

Tunisian Extended Stitch (Tes)

Make a regular Tss, and add one more chain, i.e. yo and pull up a loop.
For more detailed instructions, you can visit this Tunisian extended stitch tutorial.

Double-Extended Stitch

For the double-extended stitch, make a regular Tes and make one additional chain.

Triple-Extended Stitch

For the triple-extended stitch, make a regular Tes and then add two additional chains.

Tunisian Full Stitch

Tunisian Purl Stitch (Tps)

With the working yarn in front, insert your hook under the next vertical bar as for a Tss, yo, pull up a loop.
For more detailed instructions, you can visit this Tunisian purl stitch tutorial.

Pattern Notes

  • Always skip the very first st.
  • The first stitch is included in the stitch count. So, if the pattern states “2 Tps” right at the beginning, that number includes the first st. This means that you will have to sk that first vertical bar and only make 1 Tps into the second st.
  • Always crochet the last st by inserting your hook under both loops of the final ch from the previous row.
  • The return pass is always a Standard Tunisian Return. However, pay attention to color changes!
  • Throughout the pattern, the total stitch count is 31 sts.

Size

The Wildflowers Tunisian Crochet Square measures 8” (20 cm) by 8” (20 cm).

Gauge

Working in Tunisian purl stitch, 16 sts for 16 rows in 4” (10 cm).

How to Navigate Through This Post

In this post, I tried to share the pattern of the Wildflowers Tunisian Crochet Square and provide full instructions on how to crochet the wildflowers stitch. As a result, the post is quite long and might be confusing to navigate through.

So, I decided to split the pattern and the tutorial. In the tutorial section, you can also find a video tutorial for the Tunisian crochet Wildflowers stitch.

If you are experienced with Tunisian crochet, you might directly start with the pattern and you should be able to crochet the entire square without any problems. So, I encourage you to go directly to the Wildflowers Tunisian Crochet Square Pattern!

On the other hand, if you are not very familiar with Tunisian crochet, you might want to read through the entire post. The best way to go about this would be to start the first three rows of your square, which you can find in the pattern section. Once you have the first three rows ready, I suggest you navigate to the wildflowers stitch tutorial and go one step at a time.

Wildflowers Tunisian Crochet Square Pattern

Using your 6.5-mm Tunisian crochet hook and the yarn you chose as your main color, ch 31.

Row 1. Make a Tunisian foundation row.

Row 2. Tps across.
Return. With the same color.

Row 3. Tps across.
Return. Using green yarn.

At this point, it might be useful to take a look at the stitch tutorial below!

Row 4. 2 Tss, sk 1 st, *make 3 Tes wrapped around the post of the next st, sk 2. Repeat from * other 7 times. Make 3 Tes wrapped around the post of the next st, sk 1, 2 Tss.
Return. Use the color you chose for your first row of flowers.

Row 5

2 Tss, make a Tfs in the space right before the first Tes from the previous row. This way we will add one stitch. This extra stitch is required because the flower will kind of eat up two stitches.

Flower

Make a double-Tes as for a Tks into the first Tes from the previous row, make a triple-Tes as for a Tks into the second Tes in green, and one double-Tes as for a Tks into the third Tes of the green cluster. Yo and draw yarn through the last three loops on your hook.

Increases

Now, before the next flower, we will add two stitches. To do that, wrap your yarn around your hook and make a Tfs in the space before the next Tes.

Repeat the instructions of the Flower and the Increases other 7 times. Repeat the instructions for the Flower another time, Tfs in the space between the last Tes from the previous row and the next Tss, 1 Tss in the semi-last st, make the last st.

Return. Switch back to the yarn in your main color.

Row 6-11. Tps across.
Return. With the same color.

Row 12. Tps across.
Return. Using green yarn.

Row 13-14. Repeat rows 3 and 4.

Row 15-20. Tps across.
Return. With the same color.

Row 21. Tps across.
Return. Using green yarn.

Row 22-23. Repeat rows 3 and 4.

Row 24-26. Tps across.
Return. With the same color.

Row 27. Bind off by sl st in pattern.

Finishing

Without cutting your yarn at the end of row 27, switch to the regular 5-mm crochet hook and sc all around the square. You will have 30 sc on the horizontal sides (bottom and top), and 27 sc on the vertical sides (left and right).

A completed square

Note

When working in regular crochet, you will have 30 sts on the bottom and upper sides and not 31 sts like with Tunisian crochet. This is because Tunisian crochet “adds” one loop right at the beginning that counts as your first st.

On the vertical sides, you will also find yourself crocheting one more st in regular crochet than in Tunisian crochet. The reason for this is that the foundation row was not included in the row count in the instructions above but it does create a space for a sc.

Fasten off and weave in all your ends.

Your Wildflowers Tunisian Crochet Square is ready!

9. Make two more wrapped Tes around the post of the same st.

10. Sk 2 sts (indicated by the white arrows) and find the next st (pink arrow). Repeat from steps 5-9 until you have 3 sts left.

11. Sk 1 st (white arrow) and find the next st (pink arrow).

12. Make 1 Tss into that st and crochet the last st by inserting your hook under both vertical bars. It can be messy because of the joined yarn, so make sure to hold all the loose ends tightly. This will make it easier to find the vertical bars.

Dearest Debi’s Tunisian Crochet Rose Stitch

After I created this pattern and stitch, I also found out that there is a very similar Tunisian crochet stitch pattern that is this Tunisian crochet rose created by Dearest Debi.

The final look of the two flowers is pretty similar but the way they are crocheted is quite different.
