Tunisian Wash Cloth Duo

Have you tried Tunisian Crochet yet? Lately I am really enjoying this craft. It’s kind of like if traditional crochet and knitting had a baby! Of course, a lot of people think you have to use a special hook for Tunisian Crochet. The truth is, there are lots of patterns out there that only require a traditional crochet hook! Luckily, Noorain over at Noor’s Knits has compiled a list of easy Tunisian patterns you can make with just a regular crochet hook! You’re sure to find something on this list you’ll love – patterns range from home decor to headbands to gloves and more.

I am so excited to be included in this blog hop! When trying to think of items that can be made with a traditional crochet hook, I really took it back to basics. I decided to make a couple of highly textured washcloths. I love making things that are both beautiful and functional, and these washcloths fit both of those criteria. Also, they will help you learn some interesting Tunisian Crochet techniques, like increasing, decreasing, and bobbles! Keep reading below for both free patterns.

For these wash cloths, I used Billie Jean yarn from Wool & The Gang. You could sub any worsted weight cotton for these wash cloths. For the hook, any 6 mm straight crochet hook will work. Keep in mind that ergonomic hooks will not work for this method.
