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.

dc2tog: A dc decrease that joins two stitches into 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.

    Super easy pattern to follow. Turned out great, thank you!

    Hello these are lovely! Thank you for posting. I also love the chart. In the first row of the written pattern should it be, 1 dc in same st as beginning ch 3, after the initial ch 3 ? Love your patterns and really appreciate you sharing them with us.

    I was wondering how you would make this pattern into a blanket. I liked the double crochet and single crochet way of doing this pattern.

    • July 16, 2017 / 7:05 am

      Any multiple of 12 + 3 should work for your starting chain.

    What does the last sentence of the row 1 mean " Turn. ————–48 st"

    Does this mean turn my work and do 48 slip stitches?

    Thank you!

    • February 2, 2018 / 4:04 am

      That you will have 48 stitches at the end of Row 1.

    Would this pattern make a decent potholder too, if I wanted to make a matching one? I'm not sure if the gaps are too wide.

    • June 14, 2018 / 7:13 pm

      You can try using a smaller hook and make a double layered one.

  10. June 26, 2018 / 1:18 am

    I am having trouble getting 48 stitches at the end. I have took apart and redone several time and am only getting 47 stitches on the first row each time. HELP!

    • June 29, 2018 / 3:07 am

      The beginning ch-3 is also counted as a stitch. I think that is where you are losing a stitch.

      Hi Linda, you are free to sell what you make from my pattern, but please do not use my pictures to sell them online. A link to my blog would be much appreciated but not necessary. Thank you for asking.

    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!

      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.
