For those of you who want to continue crocheting in the warmer months, here is a lovely free pattern for your home, kitchen towel.

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 into one. Insert your hook into the first st and pull up a loop, insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop, 3 loops on hook, yarn over an pull through all the loops on hook.

I don’t get the direction to 2 sc in same st as ch 1 and the 1 dc in same st as ch 3. I’m at a loss. Can you help me figure out where this is?

Shehnaaz

You would be working the 2sc and 1 dc into the very first st.

I can’t seem to get the sides to stay straight, I’m counting my stitches for each row. I have had this problem before with the chevron stitch. Any suggestions?

Hi Sheryl, it is the increase at the ends that keeps the edges straight. If that isn't working for you, why not try adding one more stitch in the first and the last stitch. I would suggest you try it on a small swatch first.

Love the pattern! I’m however having trouble as well not getting 48 stitches. I’ve done it over multiple times. For the 48+3, wouldn’t it be total 51 chains? A little lost, sorry!

Shehnaaz

Hi Courtney, Yes, the initial chain would be 51. If you are getting 47 instead of 48, that is because the beginning ch-3 is also counted as a stitch. I found that this kept the edges neater.
