Tunisian crochet mohair shawl "Zuckerwatte"

Pattern for a cozy and fluffy Tunisian crochet shawl

"Zuckerwatte" is German for cotton candy. This shawl is light, soft and airy, just like cotton candy.


With delicate yarn, a big crochet hook and a lacy stitch pattern you’ll create a cozy and fluffy shawl that caresses your soul. The pattern is now available on Ravelry.


Zuckerwatte is worked sideways and can be finished at any size.


Skill level:

Advanced beginner, basic knowledge of Tunisian crochet techniques is required.



- approx. 500 – 600 m (550 – 650 yds) voluminous yarn like mohair

- Tunisian crochet hook with cable size 8 mm (US 11/L, UK 0) or suitable for your yarn to achieve a nice drape. Gauge is not important.


You can use 1 cake of gradient worsted weight mohair yarn, e.g. Woolly Hugs Bobbel Mohair (500 m / 150 gr., 546 yds / 5.29 oz).

The measurements of this shawl are approx. 166 x 73 cm (65 x 29 in).

Or you can use lace weight mohair yarn and crochet with two strands held together. This offers you endless possibilities in combining your favourite colours.


I made this green shawl with 6 balls mohair silk yarn (210 m / 25 gr., 230 yds / 0.88 oz).

I used a medium green for the entire shawl and combined it with darker, medium and light shades of green. This shawl measures approx. 206 x 77 cm (81 x 30 in).
