I’ve been getting my Etsy shop organized and have decided to add a few new things along with my Gossiping Paisley Chickens and Ukrainian eggs. Handmade gifts are such a nice option when giving and I love to share my ideas with those of you that would like to create your own.
This week, I created an easy crochet pattern for ZigZag stitch hand towels using cotton yarn. The stitch looks complicated, but you will be surprised how easy it is to create. This is a great project for a beginner in crochet who has mastered the double crochet.
So, want to know how to make the towels?
Easy ZigZag Hand Towel Crochet Pattern
Size H Crochet Hook
4 ply cotton yarn in various colors
Row 1: sc in second chain from hook, sc across. Turn.
Row 2: ch 2, dc in back loop of first st, dc in the same stitch (V-stitch made). Skip 1, V-stitch in next. Continue across. Join new color. Turn.
Row 3-18: Chain 2. V-stitch in space of V-stitch below. Continue across. Join new color. Turn
Row 19: sc across. Finish off.
Use a tapestry needle to weave in the ends.
Cotton yarn can be found at your local craft store or yarn shop. I highly recommend cotton over acrylic or wool for this project as it is easily washed and absorbs well. Perfect for a face cloth or hand towel!
Want even more gift ideas? Well how about a gift basket? You could pair the hand towels up with hand made soap (you can find some of my soap tutorials here and here) and maybe some wonderful smelling moisturizer.
Crochet up some beautiful ZigZag hand cloths and create your own unique gift baskets. I’m betting someone special will be very happy to receive it.
