New Dishcloth – My First Tunisian Crochet Project


Just posting a quick update.  You saw the beginnings of the project in this post, Learning Tunisian Crochet.  I used a size L Tunisian crochet hook and worsted weight cotton yarn.

Nice and curly along the bottom . . . a row of single crochet around will cure that.

I made it a very generous 9 inches square and finished it with a row of single crochet around.  (I like a larger size dishcloth.)

I believe I used a size K hook for the single crochet edging.  (Must learn to pay more attention.)  It looks very nice I think. But, I forgot to get a photo of the back.

I had no need to block this one. 😀

I actually finished this several days ago.  I just didn’t get around to shooting these photos until yesterday.  Good thing, because my Mom came to visit and I decided it would be a lovely impromptu gift!  She said  “Oh!  It’s too pretty to be a dishrag!”  😀

This project was SO quick and easy!  Must make more!  I certainly have a lot of yarn to choose from.  I think a contrasting yarn for the edging would be very nice.

Well . . . on to the next thing . . .

  1. Very impressive – no wonder your Mom was pleased! 🙂

  2. Looks good and scrubby! How did the process compare to regular crochet?

    • I didn’t get to test this one out ’cause I gave it to my mom, but it certainly does look good and scrubby! I need to make one for myself now.
      My thoughts . . . this particular stitch is very quick and easy. Seems faster than regular crochet, however you have to take into account the ‘forward & return’ process that makes it feel like you have done two rows, not just one. Still, seemed to work up pretty fast. I like that!
