You can crochet this beach inspired kitchen towel in only a few hours! Using two strands of Yarn Bee Sugarwheel Cotton in Harborwish this easy crochet kitchen towel will be done quickly. Using double strands allows for extra absorbency making it equally functional and stylish.
This easy crochet kitchen towel uses the puff stitch wave providing summertime beach feels. My ETSY listing includes a convenient stitch diagram to make easy to understand for those visual learners!
This kitchen towel makes an excellent housewarming or hostess gift to anyone looking to bring coastal style into their kitchen.
My favorite feature of this kitchen towel is the wooden ring. Allows you to seamlessly attach anywhere in your kitchen. As a mom of a toddler, my towels then they would end up who knows where amongst my son’s toys without attaching them. Not to mention the chic farmhouse vibe the natural wood ring brings. If you like the ring concept, check out my other FREE pattern here!
An update about the wood ring, I’ve machine washed and dried mine several times before but recently I had the wooden ring break in the dryer. I believe I had the heat setting too high and the wood was still saturated from the wash causing it to crack. For this reason, I recommend letting your towel air dry after washing to ensure longevity!
So grab your hook and let’s get started bringing beachy summer vibes to your kitchen.

Attaching to the ring:
You are going to use a single crochet to attach to the wooden ring. You will make two single crochets per stitch on the towel to ensure an extra sturdy attachment.
Insert hook into 1st st, grab yarn & pull through st (2 loops on hook).
Then pull yarn through the center and over the ring then through both loops on hook.
