Free Tunisian Purl Stitch Dishcloth Pattern

"One of my most exciting Saturday nights was just me and a bottle of wine and a crochet book." - Jessica Pare Tunisian crochet fascinates me. Known by many names - tricot crochet, afghan stitch, and (my favorite) idiot, fool or dolt stitch - it's a unique form of hooking that is a combination of knitting and crochet. Using either a long crochet hook or a hook with a cable, work is never turned like traditional crochet or flat knitting.There's very little to find on the history of Tunisian crochet or why it has that name, especially since most people knows quite where it came from, despite the name. It creates a firm thick fabric, perfect for household items such as blankets, pillow covers...and of course dishcloths! The newest member of our Scrub-A-Dub club uses this technique - the Tunisian Purl Stitch Dishcloth.
