This project employs the Tunisian Simple Stitch. However, the square is small enough that a regular crochet hook can be used. It is perfect for joining to other identical squares to make a larger project, such as a blanket, shawl, or bag.

With a decorative edging added, it can be used as a dishcloth or hot pad.

This is a good project to use up yarn scraps, as each triangle can be made in a different color. Each triangle uses approximately 5 yards of worsted weight yarn.

After using this pattern, you will be able to make a nearly invisible seam in a Tunisian Simple Stitch project using the mattress stitch. Photo tutorial included.

You will also be much more familiar with making increasing and decreasing triangles in Tunisian crochet.

Links to video tutorials are included within the written pattern. See playlist for free Round 1 instructions here.
