    • Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK (100% Cotton) Yarn:

    When reading the pattern grid, note that the odd numbered rows are the right side, and the even numbered rows are the wrong side.

    • It’s a good idea to print the grid and highlight the rows as they are completed.
    • Right side rows are to be read right to left
    • Wrong side rows are to be read left to right
    • All rows are worked with both strands of yarn to keep the gauge and tension consistent.  It is best to crochet tightly to avoid the second color being seen through the stitches.
    • When working a right side row, hold secondary yarn color to the back of your work.
    • When working a wrong side row, hold secondary yarn color to the front of your work.
    • Crochet over the second yarn (yarn not in use) when working each SC to avoid floats and make dish towels reversible. 


    With Main Color, CH 52 (51 plus 1 for turning chain).  Work all stitches in single crochet (plus one turning chain at the end of each row).  Follow color chart below starting at bottom right for row 1.  Each cell represents one SC and each row represents one row of crochet.


    Fasten off and weave in the ends!
