Chevron Kitchen Towel, Free Crochet Pattern







For those of you who want to continue crocheting in the warmer months, here is a lovely free pattern for your home, kitchen towels. Make them in 100% cotton for good absorbency and durability. I had made them for a friend a couple of months ago and found the time to write down the pattern only recently. The chevron used a combination of alternate double crochet and single crochet rows. This makes it a quicker version of the chevron stitch when compared to the tedious single crochet chevron. This summer,  you can expect more designs for your home from Crochet Dreamz. So what are you waiting for? Grab your hooks and yarn and get going.

Materials
1. Worsted weight cotton yarn in 3 colors. Lily sugar n cream was used for the sample.
2. Hook I (5.5mm)
3. One ¾ inch button
4. Yarn needle for weaving in the ends

Finished Size
15 inches wide at the base and 17 inches tall after buttoning up.

Gauge
 12 dc st = 4 inches


Stitch Abbreviations
st- stitch
sc- single crochet
dc- double crochet
hdc- half double crochet
sk- skip
ch- chain

Stitch Explanations
sc2tog: A sc decrease that joins 2 stitches in to one. Insert your hook in to the first st and pull up a loop, insert your hook in to the next st and pull up a loop, 3 loops on hook, yarn over an pull through all the loops on hook.


dc2tog: A dc decrease that joins two stitches in to one. Wrap the yarn around the hook, insert your hook into the first st and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, keep remaining two loops on hook, wrap the yarn around the hook again, insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over again and pull through all the 3 loops on hook.
