Free Tunisian Crochet Blanket Pattern

My latest free crochet pattern is the Tunisian honeycomb stitch throw. It’s cozy, simple, and perfect to have out all year round. Snuggle up with it during the evenings or use it as a comfort blanket in the mornings while sipping on your tea (or coffee).

This easy Tunisian crochet blanket pattern is made using only 2 stitches and bulky weight yarn. It’s the perfect pattern for adventurous beginners who want to dip their toes in the Tunisian crochet world. There’s also a guided video tutorial to help you along the way.

If you’re completely new to this type of crochet, I would recommend checking out this free Tunisian crochet kitchen towel pattern as it’s a perfect intro to Tunisian crochet. It’s also a nice small quick project!

A Tunisian Crochet Blanket for Beginners

One thing that I love about this Tunisian crochet pattern is that it’s a very simple pattern to make. It may look complicated, but I promise you it’s not. It’s just a simple repeat of two stitches that alternate in one row.

Sounds pretty easy right? So once you’ve made your first row, then all you have to do for the second row is alternate between a Tunisian simple stitch and a Tunisian purl stitch. Then the following row is made by working a Tunisian purl stitch first and then a Tunisian simple stitch.

After that, it just becomes a simple repeat of rows 2 and 3. So to crochet a Tunisian simple stitch, you want to insert your hook into a vertical bar, yarn over, and pull through and for a Tunisian purl stitch, you want to first wrap your yarn in front, insert your hook into the vertical bar, wrap your yarn behind the hook, and then pull through.

That’s it for these stitches!

The Yarn You’ll Use for This Cozy Throw

For this Tunisian crochet blanket, you will need 4 balls of Lion Brand Re-Spun Thick & Quick Yarn in the color Night Sky.

I absolutely loved working with this yarn and highly recommend it for this project. It’s a super bulky weight yarn that’s made from 100% recycled polyester yarn. It’s a very soft yarn with a great stitch definition.

Plus, it comes in 18 different colors. My favorites are Sepia Rose, which is what I used in my Chunky Crochet Blanket Pattern and I also love Hazelwood. What are your favorite colors in this yarn line?

If you wanted to substitute this yarn or simply can’t get a hold of it, I would recommend Lion Brand Thick & Quick yarn, it’s a bit thicker and made of a wool blend, but it would definitely work for this pattern.

R2: Skip first vertical bar, (Tss 1, Tps 1) across row to last stitch, Lts, RetP.

You want to alternate between the Tunisian simple stitch and the Tunisian purl stitch. Continue to do this till the end of the row (take a look at the photo down below to help identify what each stitch looks like).

R3: Skip first vertical bar, (Tps 1, Tss 1) across row to last stitch, Lts, RetP.

Like row 2, you are going to alternate between stitches, except row 3 starts with the Tunisian purl stitch first, and then the Tunisian simple stitch.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the blanket measures 44″ inches or you’ve completed a total of 80 rows.

Last row: Tunisian slip stitch across row, alternating between a simple stitch and a purl stitch. The step-by-step photos down below show how to make a Tunisian slip stitch.

Iā€™m new to Tunisian crochet but excited to start this project. Iā€™d like to make this blanket in a much larger version. Do you have a suggestion for chain count in upsizing?


Thursday 21st of December 2023

Hi there, I haven't made this in a larger size yet, but all you have to do is increase the foundation chain. So you want to make sure that your foundation chain is an even number and then continue on with the pattern.

Hi! Thanks for the amazing tutorial! I'm fairly new to crochet and am attempting this pattern, but am struggling to understand the gauge... I understand that the gauge is 4 stitches x 5 rows and I can get the rows to the right height, but I haven't been able to get my stitches that wide. Maybe I'm missing something? Especially since there are 80 stitches per row and the finished blanket is only 42 inches wide?


Monday 11th of December 2023

Hi there, thank you so much. I'm wondering if it has to do with your hook size. Have you tried going up one hook size?


Tuesday 5th of December 2023

Love this! If I want to make it bigger (using a different size of yarn), how many stitches would I make my foundation row ? Does it work like in regular crochet, for example, you go with multiples of 2? Thanks!


Monday 11th of December 2023

Thank you! Yes, so all you need to do is have an even number of foundation chains for the stitch pattern. I haven't made this pattern yet in other sizes, so I can't say exactly how many chains, but as long as you have an even number you're good to go. šŸ˜Š

Thank you for this lovely pattern. Iā€™m new to Tunisian crochet and usually knit. Iā€™m a bit confused about how you keep all you stitches for a blanket width on your crochet needle. Am I missing something obvious? Thanks!


Wednesday 8th of November 2023

You're welcome šŸ˜Š. To answer your question, you want to make sure to add an extension cord to your Tunisian crochet hook, this way all the stitches stay on the hook.


Thursday 26th of October 2023

I'm brand new to Tunisian crochet and I just bought scads of skeins of Lion Brand's regular Thick and Quick yarn with which to make a larger throw with this pattern. I need clarification on the gauge swatch for this yarn. In the pattern it says "4 stitches by 5 rows" should equal 4 inches square. I made a chain of 5 and my swatch is about 2" x 4". In your video, you chained 10 for a swatch, which would give me 4 inches across, but I make more than 4 stitches in a row. Is this what I should be doing? LOVE this pattern and I want to get it right :)

Thanks! Julie

Hi there, yes, so you want to make a swatch a bit larger than 4" inches so you can see how many stitches and rows you get in 4" inches. The swatch will let you know if you need to go up 1 hook size or go down 1 hook size. I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy making the blanket. šŸ˜Š
