I made this a couple of months ago but haven't been able to upload until now.  The color is beautiful in person but photographs weird. I adjusted the color a bit but it doesn't seem to help.  I think its yarn bee mosaic twist in iced pear.  I can't remember the color name right off hand.

This was my first finished tunisian item.  I quite like it. Its nice and warm.... Grin

That's gorgeous! The colours are warm and classic and it looks very classic. Does Tunisian refer to the sort of woven look?

Kinda.  Tunisian is another form of crochet, also called afghan crochet, croknit and about 40 other names.  LOL.   It uses the long hook that looks like a knitting needle with a hook on the end.  Its actually quite similar to knitting in that you work all the stitches onto the hook and then work them back off.  It comes of quite pretty and solid.   It's great for afghans.

hobby lobby has quite a few of them...you can make your own also.  If your project isn't going to be too wide, then you can take a rubber band or something and put it on the end of a regular hook.  I used a double ended hook on this scarf and just used one end. 

Stitch diva has a pretty good tute and I also supplemented with the Crochet Encyclopedia and Happy Hooker.
