I'm making dishcloths for Christmas presents this year.  In my personal experience, tunisian stitched cloths work best, so that's what I did. 

I've been meaning to try changing colours mid-row in tunisian crochet, and this seemed as good a time as any, so here we go:

ETA: When I was showing this to mr.fantastic I told him it was kind of half way between crocheting and knitting... that led to our new term for it (don't say it out loud if around children or your parents, as the case may be) :  Crochitting!

You did a great job!  Love the colors!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

Thanks!  It worked up easier than I thought it would, but while I was making it I was thinking about the talented folks who make big blankets with pictures on them using this stitch, it boggles my mind!

*falls to floor laughing* That's hysterical!

Nice job with the color changes. The cloths look very snazzy.  Cool

Hmm, I've always made dishcloths with double crochet, or just granny squares. This does seem like it'd be a better stitch to use....*lightbulb*. Great idea and colors!

Well....its better than knitcroching I suppose....  Wink

Ive made just regular blankets with tunisian and thought Id go blind. My Dad calls his a Mummy blanket because its just wide enough to cover him sufficiently, but its about 8 feet long so he can wrap it over his head and feet. The color changes in it were enough to make anyone batty!
