Tunisian Dishcloth

I tried another dishcloth from KnitPicks’ 52 Weeks of Dishcloths.  This one is the Sherbet Dishcloth and uses the Tunisian stitch. I’ve tried the Tunisian stitch once before, but wanted to give it another try. It came back to me quickly and I love the way the stitch looks! I like that it makes a thicker fabric that is sturdy and doesn’t stretch too much. It really is the perfect stitch for a dishcloth!

I used KnitPicks dishie cotton and I love it! I only have a few colors, but one ball lasts so long I’ve been able to use it for many projects! KnitPicks also provides additional color combination suggestions for this dishcloth. I love all of them, but the third one is my favorite! I need to get my hands on that blue!

I tend to start big projects that take a lot of time and are too big to bring with me. I wanted to find projects that I could finish in one sitting, so I started making dishcloths and potholders. This pattern is from Knit Picks. They are doing 52 Weeks of Dishcloths and have a ton of free knit and crochet dishcloths that are easy and quick to make.  This one is the Teal Swirl pattern. The pattern is easy to follow and didn’t take me too long, so it would be a great choice for someone new to crochet!
