The Channy Tunisian Sash is a fun, stash-busting pattern that allows one to show off all or just their favorite enamel pins and classic pins! This tunisian crochet pattern can be made with less than 3 ounces of yarn. If you don’t think in ounces (I don’t) that translates to 140 yards of worsted weight yarn.
Also, I just have to take a moment to brag on Channy Peas Corner! Channy is the genius behind most of my collection of enamel pins, and she will be my go to shop. If you don’t know her fabulous pins, head over to her shop RIGHT NOW! And clearly, this tunisian sash is named after Channy, who also offers a Queen of Yarn Club, which offers an exclusive pin + goodies each month.
For the Channy Tunisian Sash, any worsted weight yarn can be used, or even a thinner weight yarn. After making two sashes, I used Lion Brand Yarn Jeans Color and then Premier Home Cotton. The first sash was with an acrylic yarn that is super soft and easy to work with, but curled like a super sozed curly fry. ? The second sash was made with 100% cotton, which had some curl along the start, but most of the sash laid flatter with. I would suggest using a cotton, if you don’t want to block your sash before wearing. Unfortunately, Lion Brand Yarn Jeans Colors is discontinued, but Jeans is available! Either type of yarn is ball of 246 yds for every 3.5 ounces. If you’re a fan of Jeans, then definitely grab your favorite shade or a color that coordinates with your favorite jeans and top. If you’re a fan of cotton, then Premier Home Cotton is easy to work with. Each ball of 85% cotton and 15% polyestercome in 140 yards per 2.8 ounces.
