If you've had some time to watch the Absolute Basics of Tunisian Crochet, you're saying "Ok, Toni. This technique is super pretty, but I can't swatch forever. What's next?" I am so glad you asked, my darling. :-)
I'm excited to introduce to you to your first Tunisian crochet project, the Simple Tunisian Ear Warmer! I created this design as a beginner-friendly pattern for those just starting out with Tunisian crochet. I keep it easy by just working with one color and using the Tunisian simple stitch. And you won't need any special tools to make it! A normal 6.5mm crochet hook and a small amount of worsted weight yarn will do the trick.

Simple Tunisian Crochet Ear Warmer
- Chain 17 and complete a foundation row as normal
- Work 55 rows of Tunisian simple stitch, including your foundation row
- Sew the short ends of your piece together and cinch the seam closed, leaving an extra long tail
- Using your extra long tail, wrap the yarn around the cinched seam several times; once the wrapping is done to your liking, knot the length of yarn on the wrong side of your work and weave in your ends.
Easy peasy, right?! I love this design, and have made about a dozen for family and friends. When your ear warmer is all done, be sure to snap a pic and tag #TLYarnCrafts on Facebook and Instagram so I can share the love.
