Handmade hand towels are a favorite of mine. I love to make them, display them and use them in my kitchen. This hand towel is an easy, beginner friendly project that features simple half double crochet stitches. It's perfect for the kitchen, or the bathroom, and looks great in a solid color or stripes - you can even pull out your cotton scraps, and stashbust. I use my hand towel purely for drying my hands and decoration, but if you use yours to clean up messes, keep in mind, they may stain your fabric. I used WeCrochet Dishie Yarn for mine, but you're favorite worsted weight cotton yarn will do. For reference, I had mine ready in just under 4.5 hours.
The Kitchen Hand Towel is a quick and easy beginner-friendly crochet pattern. With a buttoned strap, it can easily be hung on a rod in a kitchen or bathroom. It’s the perfect home décor project to make as a housewarming gift, thank you or appreciation gift, or birthday present. It’s also great to make for selling at craft fairs! You can easily customize the length of the towel or the straps by adding or decreasing rows. You can also customize it by changing yarn colors or using a fancy button to create a unique look!
Ever since designing the Gingerbread Man Kitchen Towel, I’ve had many ask if I could design towels that hang in a similar way for year-round use. The Floral Blooms Hand Towel was the first in a fun, new series of crochet towels followed by the Farmhouse Striped Keyhole Hand Towel. Because crocheters loved the Farmhouse Striped Keyhole Hand Towel, I decided to come up with an even more basic crochet towel design that is suitable for beginner crocheters. This beginner friendly crochet pattern uses basic crochet stitches and techniques.
Ever since designing my very first character Christmas towel in 2019, (the Snowman Kitchen Towel), I’ve wanted to design other character towels to celebrate all of the holidays. The Easter Bunny Crochet Hand Towel & Washcloth Set was designed to add a little fun, crochet decor to your home for the Easter Season. YARN Cotton is the go-to fiber for crochet dish cloths, dish towels, and hand towels as it’s the most absorbent. There are several cotton yarns out there that would be perfect for this project, but I chose to use Lily Sugar n’ Cream 100% worsted weight cotton yarn. Lily Sugar n’ Cream is available in 39 colors so I was able to find all of the colors I needed for this project within the same yarn line.
Ever since designing my first character towel, I’ve received requests for all sorts of characters for the different holidays. The Buffalo Plaid Moose Kitchen Towel is my latest design. You can find all character towels I’ve designed to date on my blog. The Buffalo Plaid Moose Kitchen Towel is the 7th character towel I've designed and I have plans for 3 more before Christmas this year. I’ve also designed several other crochet kitchen towels that are not characters, you can find them all on my blog.
The Buco Towel is a crochet kitchen towel pattern that you can hang on the oven handle. This textured kitchen towel features a simple design that can be threaded through itself to hang neatly (and never fall on the floor)! Our oven handle is very cylindrical and the kitchen towels always slip off. This crochet hand towel stays in place, right where we need it. And if you’re looking for a simple crochet dishcloth pattern then this free pattern works too. You can easily crochet the dishcloth as a solid rectangle, if you prefer.
