Do crochet dish towels work well?
They sure do! If you use a nice absorbent yarn that is made out of cotton, they work just as well as commercially bought kitchen towels. And to top it off you get to make your own stuff for your house!

What is the best crochet stitch for a dish towel?
The best stitch to use to make a crochet dish towel is entirely up to you 🙂
Some people like very simple stitches or stitch combos, while others like more intricate stitch designs. But if you are looking for something that is quick and easy then a double crochet stitch would be a great option for a crochet stitch to make a dish towel with.
Best Yarn for Dish Towels
Using a cotton yarn or a cotton blend yarn is best for crochet dishtowel patterns.
I prefer to use a cotton blend because it is softer and tends to absorb more and dry faster than the dense 100% cotton.
