Christmas Theme Inspiration

As I mentioned earlier, this crochet kitchen towel pattern is inspired by Christmas. The holiday season is the perfect time to add some festive decor to your home, and this kitchen towel is a great way to do just that. The Christmas tree pattern in the center of the towel captures the spirit of the holiday and adds a charming touch to your kitchen.

The combination of white and green yarn also perfectly represents the colors of Christmas. The white yarn creates a snowy backdrop, while the green yarn represents the lush branches of a Christmas tree. It’s a subtle yet effective way to add some holiday cheer to your home.

This kitchen towel would also make a great DIY holiday gift. Crochet a few of them and wrap them in a festive ribbon for a thoughtful and useful present that your loved ones will surely appreciate.

hdc- half double crochet

st(es)- stitch(es)

Basic Crochet Stitches

Before we start crocheting the kitchen towel, let’s review the basic stitches you’ll need to know. The main stitches we’ll use are the single crochet (sc) and half double crochet (dc) stitches. But we have one more special stitch.

How to crochet the Berry stitch ā€“ yo, insert your hook in the indicated st, yo, pull through ( 3 loops on the hook ), yo, pull through the first loop on the hook, ( 3 loops on the hook ), yo, insert your hook into the same st, yo, pull through, ( 5 loops on the hook ), yo, pull through all the loops.

Overall pattern notes

The pattern is worked in rows. When we start crocheting the middle part of the towel where is the Christmas tree placed we will have two different types of rows.

The first row is half double crochet row where we crochet only with the white color yarn and carry the yarn we are not working at the back side of the stitches.

The second row, is the row where we work the tree part of the pattern. To work one row of this section, let’s say we work Row 18: ch1, 1 hdc in next 8 sts, switch to green color yarn, * 1 sc in next st, 1 Berry stitch in next st * rep to the last 9 sts, 1 sc in next st, switch to white color yarn, 1 hdc in next 8 sts.

For row 18 we will start with the white color yarn and work 8 sts, then we will switch to green color yarn and work to the last 9 sts, then we will work 1 sc in the next st, but will not finish it, we will go back and take the white color yarn we left after the first 8 sts and will continue working the last 8 sts with it.

The Photo tutorial is from the potholder pattern. That’s why the stitch counts are different but the method is the same!

Your work must look like this in the photo. This is the wrong side of our work.

For the half double crochet rows we work with white color yarn only. But when you crochet this row, you will carry the yarn we left at the back side of our work. You will carry the white color yarn shown in the picture above and will carry the green color yarn starting from the first green stitch to the last green stitch of the previous row; then you will leave the green color and finish the rest of the stitches with the white color yarn.

Row 49-51(RS): ch1, 1 hdc in each st across. Fasten off.

Adding hanging loop

There are many options to add the hanging loop, but this time I preferred to place it at the top of the dish towel. So to make the loop, with the right side facing you, insert your hook into 21st st of the last row, ch 10, sk next 6 sts, sl st in next st, turn your work and sl st in each ch. Fasten off.

Another popular option is to add the hanging loop at one of the corners. If you use this method, do not fasten off after the last st, ch 10, sl st into the same st.

Your dish towel, tea towel or kitchen towel is done. Happy crocheting! Don’t forget that you can make a matching potholder as well and gift it as a dish set to loved ones.
