Trusty Tunisian Dishcloth | Free Pattern

The tunisian simple stitch texture is so great for dishcloths and washcloths! Enjoy the simplicity of this pattern if you’re a seasoned tunisian crocheter, or learn a new stitch and get some practice by following the step by step tutorial!


  • 35g or 70 yds of any worsted weight cotton yarn. Samples use WeCrochet Dishie

  • 6.0mm tunisian crochet hook

  • Scissors and a yarn needle


I recommend checking your gauge to ensure the pillow will be the intended size.

4 stitches and 3 rows = 1 inch in tunisian simple stitch


ch: chain

ea: each

yo: yarn over

sc: single crochet

fp: forward pass

rp: return pass

f/o: finish off

st(s): stitch(es)

slst: slip stitch
