Crochet Trim for Kitchen Towels



This week I’m working on decorating my home for the autumn holidays. I already took out the indoor decorations and put them on display in our dining and family rooms. I still need to decorate the front door area and carve jack-o-lanterns. I know my boys will be glued to the window when the jack-o-lanterns are glowing in the dark in our front yard. That’s so much fun to them!

And what is fun for me this time of year is cooking and baking in my cozy kitchen, which needs a bit of decorating and cheering up too.  



I bought a set of two cute, autumn themed kitchen towels, which should bright up my kitchen. But for extra charm I’m adding crochet lace trims. It is an easy and fun project to do. 

I already finished one towel and I’m working on the second one.



Steel hook size 10, size 10 crochet cotton thread.

Shell: (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) all in one space.

Row 1: sc across working directly into fabric.

Row 2: ch 1, sc in next sc, *ch 1, skip 2 sc, shell in next sc, ch 1, skip 2 sc, sc in next sc* across. Turn.

Row 3: ch 3, dc in same beginning space, ch 1, *shell in next shell, ch 2* across; shell in last shell, ch 1, 2 dc in last sc. Turn.

Row 4: ch 3, dc in same beginning space, ch 1, *shell in next shell, ch 1, sc in next ch-2 space, ch 1* across; shell in last shell, ch 1, 2 dc in last dc. Turn.

Row 5: ch 3, dc in same beginning space, ch 1, *shell in next shell, ch 2* across; shell in last shell, ch 1, 2 dc in last dc. Turn.

Row 6 same as Row 4.

Row 7: ch 3, dc in same beginning space, *ch 1, (2 dc, ch 1, picot, ch 2, 2 dc) all in next shell* across; ch 1, 2 dc in last dc. Fasten off.
