Crochet Kitchen Towel Set Materials

Hook:

Yarn:

Medium (weight # 4) cotton yarn.

For the HOME towel, I used approximately 310 yards of I Love This Cotton yarn in the color White for the main color and approximately 40 yards of I Love This Cotton yarn in the color Periwinkle for the accent color. 

About 2 skeins of each color was enough to make both towels

Pattern Notes

This pattern includes the instructions to make two different towels, one solid-colored towel and one with the word HOME

The number in parentheses after each row represents the number of stitches that each row should have

The HOME towel uses the tapestry crochet method. 

Each square on the graph represents one single crochet stitch. I recommend printing the graph and marking the rows as you go. 

The graph is read from the bottom to the top. The odd rows are read from right to left and the even rows from left to right

Chain 1 and turn after every row

When you are crocheting odd rows, the yarn naturally falls to the backside of the pillow when changing colors.

When you are crocheting even rows, it is important to make sure you pull the yarn to the backside when you are changing colors otherwise your strand will be in front of the pillow and there is no way to fix it without pulling out the row. 

For this towel, I prefer to add a new strand of yarn for each color change.  That way you do not see any floats from the backside.  Just try to keep your strands organized so they do not get tangled.

    Love these towels! They will make such a great gift as well.

    Just curious when you change colors, do you also cut your yarn and tie in the ends per row?

    Thank you
