Tunisian Crochet Dishcloths
"Learn how simple Tunisian crochet can be with this pattern and tutorial for Tunisian Crochet Dishcloths. Once you get past the first few rows, you will be moving along effortlessly. It kind of feels a bit like you are knitting because of adding the loops onto the crochet hook, yet at the same time, you are only using one crochet hook to achieve these results. The stitch is a close weave and is great for dishcloths, spa washcloths, pot holders, pillows, cowls, baby washcloth, and much more."
NotesPattern on website includes a photo tutorial, right hand and left hand video tutorials too.

Yarn over and pull through one loop (the first stitch on the hook). Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Repeat across to the end. When there is one loop left on the hook, you are at the end of the row.
