My First Crochet Pattern I Designed!

This is the first crochet pattern that I totally designed myself. I made these for Christmas gifts for my family. I did a smaller version in a square for dishcloths. Enjoy!

Criss-Cross Kitchen Towel

This is my first pattern that I designed myself so if you have any problems, please let me know.

I used the Bernat Handicrafter Cotton. Looks like 1 skein might make 2 towels. I used a size H hook.

Chain 60 (Chain 40 for dishcloth)

Row 1: DC in 4th ch from hook. DC in each stitch to the last stitch. Ch 3. Turn.

Row 2: DC in next stitch and all the way to the last stitch. Ch 3. Turn.

Row 3: Skip first stitch and DC in next stitch. DC in stitch just skipped. Repeat until 2 stitches remain. DC in last stitch. Ch 3. Turn. Should have a total of 28 “criss-crosses.”

Row 4-5: DC in every stitch across. Ch 3. Turn.

Repeat rows 3-5 until towel reaches desired length. Mine measured about 27”.
(For dishcloth continue until cloth is a square.)
