The Crochet Farmhouse Table Dish Towel Pattern is the perfect practical project! It works up quickly and the combination of stitches makes for a thick and thirsty fabric to soak up wet messes and to dry off dishes in style!
Today I am sharing my first ever crochet dish towel pattern! I have posted quite a few knitted and crocheted dishcloths over the past couple years, so I thought it might be fun to dabble into dish towel making as well.
This pattern features the beautiful shell stitch. As I mentioned above, the combination of stitches in the shell stitch – double crochet and single crochet stitches – make for a great thick fabric which is perfect for a dish towel.
The simple yet trendy design can be worked up in any color combination so this towel could be easily customized to look great hanging in any kitchen – not just a farmhouse style!
This pattern would be great for determined beginners and expert crocheters alike! If you’d like to give this pattern a try, just keep scrolling!
