I am loving to crochet with chunky yarns lately, especially when paired with big crochet hooks. Enter my new favorite accessory, the Wisteria Wrap!
Wisteria Wrap Tunisian Pattern
I decided to call this the Wisteria Wrap because of the way it reminds me of the beautiful flowers and their vines that grow up virtually anything. The vines “wrap” around and around anything they can, just like I am going to do when I wear this design. ♥
The Wisteria Wrap uses Brava Bulky yarn. This is a size 5 yarn that when paired with a large, 8mm Tunisian crochet hook creates an awesome squish factor. For this pattern we are using the Tiny Clusters Tunisian stitch, for which there is a tutorial here. This is a fun, mindless Tunisian crochet stitch that is great for beginners too!
You can, of course, make this with a thinner yarn and it will come out more like a scarf than a wrap. I love that the length is nice and long, and we can wrap it around us TWICE for ultimate warmth. I’ll definitely be enjoying the fire with this on this fall! Use with a nice shawl pin to hold everything in place around your shoulders.

Remember if you need help with this stitch, or you are a beginner at Tunisian, you may find this video tutorial for this stitch here helpful. And now, on to the pattern!
Row 1: Ch-59. Pull up a loop in back bar of 2nd ch from hook and each ch to end. Backward pass: * Ch-2, yarn over and pull through four loops * repeat between * * to last two loops. Ch-1, yarn over and pull through last two loops.
Rows 2 – 116: Skip first vertical bar. * Pull up a loop in the top of the next chain. Pull up a loop in the top of the next shell, pull up a loop in the top of the next chain * repeat between * * to end. Insert hook into outer two loops of final stitch and pull up a loop. Backward pass: * Ch-2, yarn over and pull through four loops * repeat between * * to last two loops. Ch-1, yarn over and pull through last two loops.
To finish: Sl st across. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
That is it! You can choose to add tassels to each corner. When I make tassels, I cut my yarn about 10″ long, then fold in half. Here is a great, quick tutorial for cutting many strands of yarn to all the same length – and all at once!
