This project employs the Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS). However, a Tunisian crochet hook is not required, as the square is small enough that a regular crochet hook can be used.
A simple, 2-round border is added to make a lovely dishcloth or hot pad. This is a good project for yarn scraps, as each triangle can be made in a different color.
In this pattern, you will learn a seaming technique that is similar to the mattress stitch, but it has been adapted for the Tunisian Simple Stitch.
Charts/diagrams are included in the written pattern.
