Tunisian Crochet along with the Video Tutorial

Oh I found this site that has not only the pattern to use, but a video of making the patterned item too! So cool if you do not want to read the pattern and or you think it seems too hard to do.
Well it's not too hard, with the video tutorial to watch, make it while you watch it, pressing the pause button when you need to. I find these video tutorials fantastic!
Below is a Tunisian short row dish cloth that I made whilst watching the video tutorial. It took a lazy hour to complete. I am also thrilled to say that sewing in loose ends and tails are shown in the video and they are the same way that I do it.

Here is the link to the pattern and the video here. But don't stop there have a look around this site for more video tutorials and patterns. What a great way to learn. Thank You to Mary Grace McNamara from Hooked on Needles for supplying these lessons!

Hi Cat! Thanks for the nice write-up! Your dishcloth turned out great. Wasn't it FUN?

I've looked around your site too...what fun things you have here! I love your rag rug and your woven stitch facecloths. Woven stitch is one of my favorites for making afghans and baby blankets. The frog hat is darling too!

Thanks for sharing my site with your readers!

Mary Grace McNamara, oh what a pleasure to have you visit my site. I'm sure you bring much help to many who need it, you sure did show me a thing or two.

Thanks! these are fun and I've made 4 already! So, how are you liking using crochet dish cloths? They also make decent wash cloths as well. and last so much longer than the store bought ones.

Hi Rachel, 4 already! Oh I love using my dish cloths, I am making lots of face cloths too, but they are for the bush fire appeal.
I must say this tunisian one is my favourite so far!
