Who Knocked the Towel to the Floor?

Have you tried to keep kitchen towels on the oven handle only to have them knocked to the ground? My sister-in-law told me she uses a safety pin to keep hers in place. So I designed this towel as her Christmas gift to eliminate the need for safety pins. Just button the strap around the towel and it won’t go anywhere.

The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern

Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

No Fall Crochet Tea Towel Pattern

-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH1, turning chain, as a stitch. This means you will work your first stitch of the row into the last stitch of the previous row. You will not work a stitch into the top of the turning chain.

CH 96 with Pink yarn.

Row 1: Work a HDC into the second CH from the hook, HDC in next 94 CH. (95)

Row 2: CH1, turn, Work a HDC in the front middle bar of the next 95 STs.

Change to White (Ecru) yarn.

Rows 342: CH1, turn, Work a HDC in the front middle bar of the next 95 STs.

For rows 3-42, you will change colors every two rows. You will end with two rows of pink.

You have two options for dealing with yarn ends in the pattern. You can carry the yarn up the side of your work or you can clip the yarn at every color change and weave in your ends. I have left two photos below showing you what each method looks like.

After row 42, fasten off and weave in your ends.

Crochet Tea Towel Strap (Optional)

CH 33 with either pink or white.

Row 1: DC in 3rd CH from hook. DC in each CH across.

Fasten off. Use your yarn end to sew a 3/4-inch button to one side of the strap. You may notice that the strap has no buttonholes. The 3/4-inch button can simply be pushed between two stitches. This makes the strap very adjustable.

Fold the strap in half to find the center. Place the strap 7 inches from the bottom of the tea towel use a small piece of yarn to sew a few stitches to attach the strap to the center of the towel, 7 inches from the bottom of the towel.

Now your crochet tea towel is complete. You can hang it on your oven handle and button the strap to keep it from getting knocked off.
