If you’re looking for a fast and simple crochet pattern to make this Crochet kitchen/dish Towel it’s perfect for you. This is a quick crochet project to make when you don’t now what to crochet any more or when you need a cute and cool crochet ideas for a last minute gift. Also it’s a fun project to crochet and at the end of the day you’ll have the satisfaction that you’ve finished a project.
You can pair this crochet kitchen/dish towel with this Alpine dishcloth and you’ll have a cool crochet set for your kitchen. If you know how to crochet, your kitchen definitely needs a touch of crochet no matter if it’s a modern or a rustic one.
The first thing we want for a towel is to be absorbent so you definitely should use cotton yarn. And because it’s a textured pattern it will hold up very well in the washing process. Let’s not forget that a crochet kitchen/dish towel it’s more sustainable and eco friendly.
If you are a beginner or you are looking for beginner crochet patterns and you think this pattern is too much for you, you can skip the last five or six rounds of the edge witch are crocheted in Alpine stitch and leave the pattern with just one or two rounds of the edge. The body of the towel is very easy to crochet, even beginner friendly, it uses only single crochet and double crochet stitches. So don’t be afraid to try it. Plus is the perfect occasion to learn a new stitch: the front post double crochet used for the alpine stitch.

The written pattern for the Crochet kitchen/dish Towel:
The Chart for the houndstooth stitch used for the body of the towel:
Finished towel measures: 64 cm/ 25 inches length and 48 cm/19 inches width.
Start with 83 chains.
Row 1: In the 2nd chain from the hook crochet a dc, sc in next chain, *dc in next ch, sc in next ch*, repeat *-* until the end of the row;
Row 2: Ch 1, dc in the single crochet of the previous row, sc in the dc of the previous row, *dc in next sc of the previous row, sc in next dc of the previous row*. Repeat *-* until the end of the row.
Make sure to crochet every single crochet stitch in the double crochet of the previous row and the double crochet stitch in the single crochet of the previous row.
Repeat row 2 to complete the pattern. In total crochet 101 rows. Next we’ll crochet the edge in rounds. For the edge we’ll crochet one round of single crochet and then we’ll continue with six rounds of the Apline stitch.
The edge for the crochet kitchen/dish towel:
1. Round 1: After you finish row 101 don’t cut the yarn, don’t turn your work and start to crochet one round of single crochet. You’ll crochet 1 sc for every row on the length, 3 sc for corners and 1 sc in every stitch for the width. You should finish the round in a corner making 3 sc crochet and slip stitch to first single crochet to close the round. You should have 378 stitches.
2. Round 2: ch 2 (don’t count as a dc), dc in the same stitch and continue crocheting double crochet in every single crochet of the previous row. When you reach the corners crochet in the second stitch 3 double crochet stitches. Slip stitch to first stitch of the round to close the round. You should have 384 double crochet stitches.
3. Round 3: ch (don’t count as a stitch), single crochet in the same stitch and continue to crochet one single crochet in every stitch of the previous round. When you reach the corners crochet in the second stitch 3 single crochet stitches. Slip stitch to first stitch of the round to close the round. You should have 392 single crochet stitches.
4. Round 4: ch2 (don’t count as a stitch), dc in the same stitch; *crochet 1 fpdc skipping the next sc and going around dc in the round below the skipped sc, 1 dc in next sc*. Repeat *-* until you reach the corner and in the second sc of the corner crochet: 1 fpdc around the second dc below, 1 dc in the second sc of the previous round and 1 fpdc in the same stitch as the first one. Dc in next stitch and continue repeating *-* until the end of the round crocheting the corners as you did for the first one. You should have 392 stitches.
5. Round 5: repeat round 3, at the end of the round you should have 402 stitches.
6. Round 6: repeat round 4.
7. Round 7: repeat round 3, at the end of the round you should have 408 stitches.
After you finish round 7 slip stitch to the corner and crochet 20 chains and slip stitch in the same stitch you’ve started the chains. Then crochet single crochet stitches around the chains. I’ve crocheted 43 sc until I finished the yarn. Wave in the end of the yarn on the back of your work.
Wash the towel by hand or on the washing machine at maximum 40 Celsius degrees; I prefer 30 Celsius degrees for all my cotton items. Dry it flat and then iron it choosing the temperature for cotton.
