Free Crochet Pattern: Chevron Rag or Pot Holder

(Shown in from left: Bernat Handicrafter Pale Yellow & White
Lily Sugar n Cream Hot Pink, Ombre LoveWhite 
Lily Sugar n Cream Hot Pink, Yellow & White)

This simple pattern yields a larger size rag, if you would like a slightly smaller rag you can try going down a hook size. The pattern is written for the Yellow & White Chevron design in the above photo, feel free to change up the color changes how you wish though.

If you would like to add a some texture to your rag, work in the BLO for rows 2-20.
Below is an example rag worked in the Back Loop Only (and the border was also left off).
