A Tunisian Crochet Cardigan for Beginners

When I first started getting into crochet, wearables like sweaters and cardigans really intimidated me. It’s not until I made my first sweater pattern that I realized how fun it could be to crochet your own clothes!

The Muna Cardi was intentionally designed with beginners in mind. It uses a lightweight yarn that’s not too thin, it works up quickly, and the stitches and construction are really straightforward.

My favorite features of the Muna Cardi are the accent stitching on the cuffs and the barely-there pockets. Small details like these turn a simple sweater into something really special.

I Feel The Need for Tweed

There’s just something about tweed in yarn that makes it instantly more sophisticated to me. Mix that tweed with Merino wool and alpaca and you’ve got bona fide luxury. City Tweed DK yarn from WeCrochet is a glorious blend of these fibers, making the Muna Cardi a pleasure to crochet with as well as wear.

With such a classic cardigan, you can’t go wrong when choosing colors. The full palette of City Tweed DK has a smoky, rich tone to it while still feeling very neutral. I chose the color Plum Wine for Muna Cardi sample and I’m so happy that I did. The red and violet tones give warmth to the skin, which is always welcome in the dead of winter.

  • Small – 9 balls

    Toni! The muna cardigan is amazing! Thank you for your beautiful work.
    I have a request. Could you show us how to correct a mistake several rows past? Or, if I frog the work back a few rows…how do I get the stitches back so I can work on them?
    I hope this make sense.
    Anyway thank you for all you do.

      Hi! With Tunisian crochet, you’ll need to frog back to where you made the mistake. You can pull back to the first stitch on that row and insert your hook to do the row over again. Hope that helps 🙂

    Hi Toni, I’d like to make the Muna as a longer cardi. Will it be pretty easy for me to add length to it? Thanks — NF

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Hi! Absolutely, yes. Adding length to the Muna Cardi is easy. After you make the Honeycomb rows for the back, make the Tss section as long as you want it to be, then mimic the same for the front. You’re welcome to email [email protected] if you have questions 🙂

    Hi Toni! I have about 1300 yeards of fingering tweed I’d like to use – is it possible to adjust this to fingering? Love the pattern!

    • Toni L.Toni L. says

      Hi! You certainly could. Just use the measurements instead of stitch and row counts, and you should be able to adjust this pattern pretty easily.
