A Farmhouse Inspired Crochet Kitchen Towel Pattern

I’m going to start this post off a little differently because I just want to express my love for farmhouse style. Anyone else? I just love the overall look of it and how homey it feels.

And I probably have way too many pins saved on my Pinterest on farmhouse kitchen decor, but I just can’t help myself (if you do too, you might want to pin this crochet farmhouse style pillow). It’s just so pretty!

Ok, so now that I’ve preached my love for farmhouse aesthetics, let’s talk about my latest free dish towel pattern inspired by farmhouse style!

This free crochet kitchen towel pattern is beginner-friendly, simple, and made using only one stitch. All you need is two different worsted weight cotton yarns and a 5.5 mm crochet hook.

So if that sounds good to you, I think you’ll really enjoy making this pattern.

A One-Stitch Repeat Crochet Pattern

One thing that I love about this crochet dish towel is that it’s made using only half double crochet stitches. So if you like making half double crochet stitches as much as I do, you’ll love making this!

I chose this stitch pattern for this dish towel because it honestly reminds me of the granite stitch. Except, it’s way faster!

The granite stitch is made using a combination of chain spaces, chains, and single crochets. This stitch pattern is made by working a half double crochet between the stitches.

So way easier in my opinion and I was shocked how fast this project worked up.

The Yarn You’ll Use for This Crochet Kitchen Towel – Dishie Yarn

For this crochet kitchen towel pattern, you will need 2 different colors of a worsted weight yarn. I used WeCrochet Dishie yarn, which is a really nice soft cotton yarn.

It’s one of my favorites to use for home decor patterns, as the yarn holds up really well when thrown in the wash a couple of times.

So for the pattern, I used the colors, Swan and Silver. Swan was used as the main color of the dish towel and then I used Silver for the accent color. So you will need 2 different colors for this pattern.

WeCrochet Dishie yarn has 30 different color options, so there’s a lot to choose from!

I am working off your pdf of this pattern. Despite having crocheted for decades, I cannot figure out where to put an hdc between two hdcs in the previous row. What I am ending up with does not look like your closeups. I am feeling kinda dumb 😬. Can you clarify, please? Thank you!

@Nicky,

Eureka, I got it! Once I figured out that the space is the one directly underneath where the stitch would normally go, it made total sense and I realized I was making it WAAAAY harder than it needed to be. Thanks for your patience!

Hi there,

Of course, no problem. It's totally ok, sometimes crochet stitches can be hard to make. So normally when you make a half double crochet stitch, you place a half double crochet in a stitch. For this stitch pattern, you want to work that half double crochet beneath that stitch. So you're working that half double crochet stitch in the space between two half double crochet stitches.

I hope that helps, but please let me know if you have any other questions.
