Tunisian Loopy Knot Cowl & Scarf

Ask Me Monday: Loopy Knot Stitch

Loopy Knot Stitch

This month on Ask Me Monday, we’ve been playing with net stitches, which are great options for summer pieces like tops, scarves and market bags. In a recent episode, I covered knit and crochet stitches that produce a mesh-like fabric. Today, we’re looping in (har, har, har) a third craft by learning a Tunisian crochet stitch that evokes a knotty net look. I love the Tunisian Loopy Knot Stitch because it’s got the cool vibe of modern macrame while feeling light and airy like lace.

Watch the episode, learn the stitch, then put your sweet, stitching skills to work by making the Loopy Knot Stitch Cowl or Scarf. Have fun!
