The Ultimate Collection of Hand / Kitchen Towel Patterns to Crochet
Spread the love

Hand towels and kitchen towel patterns are great items to crochet. They make fantastic gifts, are super practical and look so pretty!

So whether you are looking to make some for yourself or to gift you are sure to find what you are looking for in this roundup.



What yarn should you use?

Before we get the patterns you need to ensure that you are using the correct yarn for the project, especially if you are planning to gift the towel.

When it comes to kitchen and bathroom items I would almost always recommend cotton. It is durable, washes well, stays looking great for so much longer and will not melt or burn as easily if used near a hot hob or to take a dish out of the oven. It is also absorbent so if you are using it to dry hands or dishes it is perfect. In high use areas like the kitchen and bathroom you need all of these qualities in your yarn choice.

When it comes to brands, my recommendations vary depending on whether you need a #3 weight or #4 weight cotton.

If looking for a #3 weight I would recommend:

  • Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK
  • Stylecraft Naturals Bamboo and cotton mix – the drape on this is just gorgeous!
  • Lionbrand 24/7 Cotton

For #4 weight yarns I like to use:

  • I Love this Cotton by Hobby Lobby
  • Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran
  • Dishie Cotton
