Earlier this week I posted a brand new stitch to our stitch library, the single crochet chevron stitch. Now that you have had some time to practice it, how about we put these new skills to use?
I’ve prepared for you a quick and easy crochet kitchen towel using the single crochet chevron stitch. Here in the States, July fourth is just around the corner so I have made mine using red, white and blue cotton. You could customize your color combinations to match your kitchen or any holiday!

This version of the single crochet chevron stitch uses 5 stitches in between the “peaks”. This particular version uses a multiple of 13 + 2, so if you wish to make your towel larger (or make a different project using this stitch) chain a multiple of 13 and add 2 chains at the end. If you are creating a different project with this stitch, check out my tutorial on how to calculate the foundation chain length.

Row 1: Ch 67. Sc twice in the 2nd ch from hook. *Sc into each of the next 5 chains. Skip 2 chains, sc once into each of the next 5 chains. Sc 3 times in the next chain. Repeat from * across and make 2 sc in the last chain.
Rows 2-60: Ch 1 and turn your work. Sc twice into the first stitch. *Sc into each of the next 5 sts. Skip 2 sts, sc once into each of the next 5 sts. Sc 3 times in the next stitch. Repeat from * across and make 2 sc in the last stitch.
To duplicate my color pattern, bind off and change colors every 5 rows. I started with 5 rows of navy, then 5 rows of white and finally 5 rows of scarlet. As I mentioned before, you can get very creative with your color choices. I’d love to see what you come up with! Be sure and share your pictures with me on my Facebook page!
