This Tunisian crochet kitchen towel is whipped up using the brick stitch.
This stitch creates a look similar to the stacking of bricks, creating a beautiful geometric and modern design. Switch up the colors of the cotton yarn to match your home’s decor!

Free Tunisian Crochet Kitchen Towel Pattern
With summer in full swing, I’ve been working with cotton yarn a ton and loving every minute of it!
Right now, my favorite cotton yarn is Lion Brand’s 24/7 Cotton. I love the way it feels on the hook and in my hands. Plus the slight sheen is gorgeous and the color selection is amazing.
How to Crochet the Tunisian Kitchen Towel
Ever since I laid eyes on the Tunisian brick stitch, I knew a crochet kitchen towel pattern was in it’s future.
As I mentioned, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with 24/7 cotton yarn. You can see all of the beautiful colors here, as well as in the photo below.
Here’s a list of several I Can Crochet That patterns made using this yarn:
- Tunisian crochet rectangle placemat pattern
- Crochet kitchen towel and washcloth pattern
- Easy round crochet placemat pattern
I also recommend this yarn for making crochet market bags like the one I made here.
I’ve rounded up a bunch of crochet market bag patterns on this post.
I also listed this yarn as one of the best yarns for crochet beginners. It’s not as stiff as quite a few cotton yarns I’ve worked with before and it just glides on your hook, making it easy and enjoyable to work with.

Tunisian Simple Stitch How-to
This is the first video I ever recorded for I Can Crochet That, so it’s a little dark and kind of embarrassing, but I think it gets the stitch across. 😉
I haven’t recorded a video yet for the long Tunisian front post double crochet stitch, but a quick search on YouTube and you’ll find some.
And that’s a pattern wrap! I can’t wait to see what color combos you come up with. Be sure to tag #ICanCrochetThat on your social media channels so I can take a peek!
