Tunisian Crochet Mystery Project

By now you have had a chance to try out some Tunisian Crochet stitches and you've seen the cute little yellow duckie washcloth.

Are you ready for another quick Tunisian Crochet project? Here's one for you, but with a twist...no chart to work from and no picture! It's a Mystery Project!

Tunisian Crochet Mystery Project
With a sporting spirit, some basic supplies and the information you will find below, you can whip up a fun little something which will be both attractive and useful. It will be nice enough to give as a gift or to keep for yourself. It can be used in the bathroom or the kitchen, so choose your yarn color accordingly.

What you will need:
  • 1 ball crochet cotton such as Sugar 'n Cream in a solid color
  • Size K-10 1/2 afghan hook
  • scissors
  • large-eye blunt point darning needle
  • magnetic board or ruler to help keep your place on the pattern (optional)

Stitches to review before beginning:

  • Hey Mary Grace,
    I can't wait to make this new cloth. I had to take my Mom to the ER today...that was unexpected...she is fine...thank the Lord! Praying you're feeling better today too!
    God Bless You,
    Merry:)

    Thanks a bunch for the new pattern!

  • Working on turning this one into an afghan. I inverted the knits and purls in adjacent squares to give it a checkerboard pattern with the inset. Trying to decide if I want 4 per square and sew together like a quilt, or get industrious and use my 48" Tunisian hook.
