I made several styles of kitchen boas for Christmas gifts, and this is one that can brighten up your kitchen throughout the winter. If you’re well versed in Tunisian stitch, this will be a simple project for you. If you’ve never done it before, this is the perfect easy project to learn Tunisian or afghan stitch. There’s also a YouTube tutorial to help you through it. https://youtu.be/_4QHPqtdys4
I Love This Cotton worsted weight yarn
3.5 oz blue
1 oz. white
Crochet hook size G (4.0 mm)
8” x 20” (20 cm x 51 cm) Kitchen Towel
Needle and Thread
Row 1: With blue yarn, ch 20, Tunisian st in 2nd ch and each rem ch (19 sc). This should measure approximately 4” across.
Row 2: Work in Tunisian st until piece measures 37”. Bind off blue yarn. When sewn to both sides of the kitchen towel, the boa will measure approximately 68”. If shorter or longer boa is needed, adjust the length of the crocheted piece.
Work snowflake pattern in white yarn using cross-stitch (or duplicate st if you prefer). Skip 2 rows and work another snowflake above it. Repeat 2 snowflakes on opposite end.
Cut towel in half and serge or zigzag raw edges. Fold edges to middle and sew edge.
Fold edges again to middle and sew in place. This will give you a width of approximately 4”.
Hand sew or machine sew this edge of towel to back side of crocheted piece.
Block boa and weave in all ends.
