It was a pretty long haul – and many many hours worth of stitching – to get from conception of this pattern to the premier of the pattern itself. Thankfully my new fall design, the Shaman Coat Tunisian crochet pattern, combines some of my favorite attributes:
a.) fairly long stretches of simple stitching so I can zone out to a Netflix binge,
b.) magical design tweaks that look fancy but are simply executed, and
c.) yarn that keeps things interesting and surprising even when you’re doing the same thing over and over again.
You can get the pattern for the Shaman Coat here in my Etsy Shop , Ko-Fi Shop, or through my Ravelry Pattern Store!
UPDATE 8/2020: There is now a growing playlist full of Tunisian Crochet video tutorials over on the Morale Fiber YouTube channel – check it out!
A warm, practical outerwear garment with a touch of magic! The Shaman Coat uses the unique structure of Tunisian crochet to create a gorgeous woven look that is eye-catching with any variegated yarn. Featuring a deep, draping oversized hood and cropped kimono-style sleeves, the Shaman Coat includes the pattern for sizes Small, Medium, and Large.
The entire main body of the garment is worked flat and completed with only two easy seams while the hood is picked up and worked flat with decrease shaping and then closed with a partial seam at the top.
Never worked Tunisian crochet before? The Shaman Coat pattern includes a Tunisian Primer, with photo and written tutorials for every single Tunisian technique needed to complete the pattern – including basic Tunisian crocheting itself. Learn something new AND look amazing!
Recommended yarn: 11-15 skeins of Lion Brand Amazing (#4, 147 yd/50 g, 53% wool, 47% acrylic)
Finished Measurements: Small (19″ w. 33″ h.) Medium (21″ w. 33″ h.) Large (25″ w. 33″ h.)

Another big bonus for this pattern is the super-luscious array of colorways the pattern yarn comes in – I recommend checking out the Lion Brand webpage to see the full range. I kinda want to make one in every single color. They’re not even paying me to say that.
This one is dedicated to the motley group of trashpandas that I call my circle of best friends. You know who you are. <3
