You’re going to love the Calidi Scarf. It’s the perfect quick crochet gift & it’s a great easy Tunisian crochet pattern.
This scarf is perfect for fall and winter, both wrapped as a cowl & as a pretty accessorize around your neck.
It’s a 100 % Acrylic yarn with yarn weight Bulky. What I love the most about this yarn is all the color options. For this scarf I picked the color “Shade”, but it wasn’t easy to pick a favorite.
If you liked their discontinued yarn Woolspun, this has a similar feel.
A GREAT LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS GIFT CROCHET PROJECT
What I love especially about this scarf is the fact that it works up super quick. If I have to guess, I’d say 1-4 hours, depending on how fast you crochet.
That also makes it a great last minute crocheted Christmas gift.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

The Calidi Scarf is a great Tunisian crochet pattern for fall and winter. It’s skill level easy & works up quickly.
This pattern is a great pattern to try when you’re new to Tunisian crochet, as there is no complex details.
The pattern is written for just one size, but you can easily adjust it to be both longer and wider.

Yarn amount used:
2 skeins / 220 g / 248 m / 272 yards
- 5 bulky yarn.
- 100 % Acrylic
OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED:

Measured with Tdc crocheted in rows:
10 stitches & 5 rows per 10 cm / 4”.
- This crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).

- Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
- Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
- Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
- Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).

ch = chain (s)
Tdc = tunisian double crochet
Sl st = slip stitch
St = stitch (es)
STITCHES YOU WILL NEED:
Step 1: Ch 2 st.
Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Step 3: Insert hook into previous “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches. *2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.
TUNISIAN DOUBLE CROCHET (Tdc):
Yo, insert hook in next stitch, yo and pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2.
Each time you repeat, you’ll add 1 extra loop on the hook.
TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED:
STANDARD TUNISIAN RETURN (return):
Yo, pull through 1, *yo, pull through 2*, repeat from *to* until you have 1 loop on the hook.
WHERE IS THE FRONT VERTICAL BAR?
After crocheting the first return pass, you should be able to see distinct vertical bars. One in the front of the work (the front vertical bar) & one in the back (the back vertical bar).
Make 132 stitches wit the FSC method.
*Always start the first stitch on each row in the second front vertical bar.
All stitches are made in the front vertical bar of the stitch, except the first & final row.
Row 1: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), Tdc 1 in each FDC across, return (=132 st).
Row 2: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), Tdc 1 in each st across, return (=132 st).
Row 3-10: Repeat row 2.
Row 11: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), sl st 1 between each st across to make final edge even.
Fasten off & cut yarn.
Fasten threads & weave in ends.
When crocheting this scarf the fabric created turned quite rolled. I decided that I liked the look & that’s why I suggest you don’t block it.
Each row also ended up slightly diagonal, which again I decided to embrace as a part of the design.
If you want a more standard flat look with straight edges, then blocking is necessary.
