About this Pattern

If you’re looking for a warm weather project you’ll get tons of use out of, you’re in the right place. Cotton crochet kitchen towels are practical, absorbent and pretty quick to make.

With this project you’ll get to practice the crochet chevron stitch working through the back loops to create a ridged texture that’s great for scrubbing. Choose a single color or as many colors as you want to customize this pattern to match your kitchen decor.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as written instructions to complete the chevron crochet kitchen towel from start to finish.
