Blue Wave Dish Towel Crochet Pattern – Ripple

Looking for a free kitchen dish Towel pattern to try? This free blue wave dish towel crochet pattern is a great project to try.

This dish towel crochet pattern uses the ripple crochet stitch which is a combination of half double crochet and half double crochet decrease stitch.

Dish towel patterns are great for learning a new stitch. You don’t need much yarn, 2 skeins of cotton yarn to make to matching dish towels.

You can use as a kitchen cleaning cloth, dish towel, or wash cloth. They work great and are durable.

This stitch makes a wavy pattern. It is the popular classic ripple stitch used in crochet afghan patterns.

I think these colors of denim blue and white would make an adorable boy baby blanket.
