(6) Name: 'Knitting : Heather's Hand Towel

Heather's Hand Towel

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, twisted stitches

Pattern Description:

Because I don't like dishcloths but I do like mindless knitting from time-to-time, I started building this little ditty. The texture of the fabric makes it quite absorbent (just wash your cotton well before using to remove any sizing).

I blocked mine wet... well... just because that's what I do when I wash knitted things. It didn't really need it.

The stitch pattern is easy when you know what you're doing, but if you've never knit twisted stitches, I recommend watching the brief tutorial video that is linked to from the pattern. It's a private link so you won't be able to search for itjust use the direct link on page 2.

Any questions, please message me!
