Mesmer Tunisian Veils
This pattern set offers a unique experience of crocheting breezy Tunisian filet scarves, wraps, and vests. The Mesmer approach is a three-in-one introduction to:
- A versatile extended Tunisian net stitch that conserves yarn
- Double-ended crocheting for a reversible and fringe-free option
- Easy steeking (cutting open armholes with a quick snip of “self-healing” stitches for the vest option).
Skill Level: Easy Intermediate You should have some experience using Tunisian crochet patterns. Use this blog post for a quick review: “Five Basic Rules of Tunisian Crochet Patterns.” A good example of a modern introductory-level Tunisian crochet pattern is the Burly scarf.
Use a double-ended Tunisian crochet hook to make a decorative solid edge (see the teal example) instead of fringed (the pink scarf).
Mesmer’s veil quality results mainly from alternating a lace weight kid mohair yarn with a medium weight glossy sequined silk yarn. You can get other special effects by trying other very different yarns.
