Tapestry crochet is a technique that is well-suited for use in potholders and similar protective projects such as hot pads, trivets and placemats; the additional carried yarns or threads make it easy to create a dense fabric.

Tapestry Crochet Scarf Patterns

We've posted the free patterns for a couple of checkered scarves worked using the tapestry crochet technique and eyelash yarn. One of them is pictured at left; there's also a similar but different checkered scarf that features even more eyelash yarn.

Checkered Crochet Headband

I used back loop single crochet stitch, combined with the tapestry crochet technique to create this two-color ribbed headband. While I've labeled this as an "intermediate" pattern, I do think it's one of the easier tapestry crochet patterns we have available. As far as starter patterns go, this one's noteworthy because it offers you a nice change of pace from making basic afghan squares.

Tapestry Crochet Bags and Wallets

Tapestry crochet is well-suited for working in the round; it's a fun way to make colorful bags, totes and purses. Of course, if you want to try a smaller project, wallets and pouches are also fantastic options.
