Free Pattern -- Tunisian Crochet Apple Dishcloth

The luscious, red, juicy apple seems to have a reputation for causing trouble from way back. My own red apple is no different! Of course I'm talking about my latest design for a crocheted dishcloth. Actually the crocheted version was no trouble at all. It was converting the pattern so that it would work for knitting that was the problem. But we'll cover that story in another post. Today I'll just focus on the lovely dishcloth with the beautiful red apple on it.

Tunisian Crochet Apple DishclothDoesn't that almost look good enough to eat? Apples come in all shapes, sizes and colors and are available here in New England fresh off the trees in the fall. In fact, Johnny Appleseed was born right here in my own little city, so we have apples in every form imaginable. Now we even have an apple dishcloth!

Here's the pattern for the apple dishcloth for use with Tunisian Crochet. Just click on the chart and then print it.

In the next post, I'll share with you my adventure of taking this crochet chart and making it work with knitting. It was fun, frustrating and educational all at the same time and I'm glad I finally did it. I hope you will be too!

Happy Stitching!
