Tunisian crochet is a deceptively easy technique that is a little bit crochet, a little bit knitting and looks like weaving. The resulting fabric is quite thick and spongy making it a perfect choice for washcloths. This is a quick and easy project finished off with a crochet border in Linen Stitch and perfect for gift giving
Use this pattern for the Crunch Stitch Washcloths to learn a new stitch and create something useful for your home at the same time. These washcloths are beginner-friendly, and you have a choice to make them either in one color or using two colors. My favorite one is the pink and blue version because you can use leftover scrap yarn from bigger projects. The solid bumpy texture of the crunch stitch is perfect for these washcloths. They make beautiful gift sets paired with a handmade soap or body wash.

This crochet pattern for the beginner linen stitch coaster works up quickly and it is a wonderful way to practice. If you are new to crochet, then this simple pattern is for you. This crochet pattern is chocked full of crochet tutorials to help you master this project. There are video tutorials for crochet stitches, crocheting over yarn ends, color charts, as well as, some photo tutorials. Further, there are other crochet project ideas using this crochet stitch. Today, I used yarns that had a bit more earth tones in them. This pattern will lend itself well to both a solid color or variegated yarn. The coasters have been made with just one color of yarn, as well, as altering a few of the rows of color to change up the look. When crocheting coaster, I find that cotton yarn works the best. It is sturdy and washes up well too.
The Linen Stripes Dishcloth has a wonderful, woven texture, with subtle stripes. It can be crocheted in two colors to enhance the stripes even more. This dishcloth looks best in a solid color to show off the linen-like texture. Multi-colored yarn works great for the stripes. Each dish cloth measures approximately 8" (20 cm) by 8” (20 cm). Each dishcloth can be crocheted in about an hour. You can make at least four of them from one skein of Comfy Cotton Blend.
