Modern Country Kitchen Towels Crochet Pattern

I’ve been suffering from a case of the winter blues as of late. Canadian winters are long and bloody cold – which can seem pretty miserable by the middle of February.

To get out of my rut and bring a little cheer to the home, I decided to work on something colourful this time. I came up with these fun kitchen towels made with Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK. I love the colour palette – there are so many choices, and I’m always excited when the yarn arrives and I get to see it in person. I was not disappointed when the Kingfisher Blue arrived, which is the blue that I used to make these towels. All I can say is that this colour is even more stunning in person than in the photos! And the texture is so, so soft and perfect for towels and washcloths. I highly recommend that you try out this yarn line – I just know you will fall in love with it like I have!


I have written out and posted the free pattern for these kitchen towels below on this page.

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 towels reversible.

Pattern:

With Main Color, CH 41 (40 plus 1 for turning chain).  Work all stitches in single crochet (plus one turning chain at the end of each row).  Follow color charts below starting at bottom right for row 1.  Each cell represents one SC and each row represents one row of crochet.

Border and Finishing:

Work around the border of the towel evenly in single crochet.  Make sure that you do 3 SC in each corner of the border.   When you have completed one round, join to first sc with a slip stitch.  Fasten off and weave in the ends!

  1. I have always thought how hard it would be to crochet plaid. However, I have just watched your tapestry stitch video tutorial. Thank you so much you explained the stitch so well. I will be trying the kitchen towel pattern.
