City Cowl, is a super cozy and quick project worked in Tunisian crochet. Working Tunisian crochet in the round opens up great color combination possibilities since one color is used to pick up stitches and the other one to bind them off.

The scarf is worked in the round in Tunisian simple stitch (TSS) and Tunisian purl stitch (TPS) forming a lovely honeycomb like texture.
Each row in Tunisian crochet consists of picking up all the stitches and casting off all the stitches.
When working in the round you need to connect the last picked up stitch with the first stitch in the round below.
Color A is used to pick up stitches (first half of each round). When picking up the last stitch also bring the needle through the first stitch of last row and pull the yarn through.
Color B is used to cast off (second half of each row) remember to pull the yarn through the first loop and then pull the yarn through two loops together working your way back around until two stitches remain on the hook. Switch to color A and pull the yarn through the last two stitches.
