Tunisian Shaker Dishcloths, inspired by my knit version. No Tunisian Crochet experience necessary – you don’t really even need a special Tunisian Crochet hook! Pattern includes instructions for coasters, as well as info on modifying to any size.
This pattern is a FREE RAVELRY DOWNLOAD, to accompany the video tutorial, below.
Size: Finished dishcloth is about 7.25” (19cm) in diameter
Hook/Needles: Size US K (6.5mm), two knitting needles size 10 or 10.5 (6 or 6.5mm)
Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted, or any worsted (also called 10 ply) weight yarn, in cotton or a cotton blend, in two colors. 20 grams of yarn for each dishcloth (10 grams each color).
Additional Materials: Tapestry needle
Gauge: 4 stitches per inch
I recently released a video on how to create a crocheted provisional cast-on without picking up stitches. That technique will NOT work for this pattern. Because each Tunisian crocheted row requires working both left-to-right and right-to-left to complete a row, that modified provisional cast-on sets you up in the wrong position. Please work the provisional cast-on as indicated in the video and pattern.
Information on things you’ll see in this video:
The yarn I used is Knit Picks Comfy Worsted, (my favorite dishcloth yarn) in the following colors: White, Honey Dew, Sea Foam, Marlin, Creme Brulee, and Fizz.
The crochet hook I’m using is Knitter’s Pride Dreamz in size K, 6.5mm.
The nail polish I’m wearing is by Julep, color “Amanda”.
My silver ring is actually a knitting needle gauge, and can be found here.
