Tunisian Tissue Pack Cozy

Tunisian Tissue Pack Cozy

This project and tutorial for this Tunisian Tissue Pack Cozy were created back in 2017 as part of a partnership between JOANN and The Knit Show. The pattern used to live on the JOANN blog, which no longer exists. The video remains in the same location on The Knit Show YouTube channel (scroll down to watch), but until now has been without a posted pattern for the past little while. Please see below for the written instructions.

This project is a great intro the Tunisian crochet. Even if you’ve never picked up a hook before, after watching the video, you should be good to go. Have fun!
