Honu Hand Towels
Honu Hand Towels

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit & purl, YO.

Pattern Description:

This pattern includes two versions of this hand towel, one without a handle and a smaller one with a handle.

Honu is the Hawaiian word for sea turtle. Sea turtles play an important role in Hawaiian culture and are seen as protectors, but, sadly, it is now the sea turtles that need protecting. Today, the sea turtles are encountering numerous threats and facing extinction.

This is the first pattern in my "Dreams of Maui" collection, which, as the name suggests, features patterns inspired by my recent trip to Maui.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Without handle: 19.5 inches long by 14 inches wide, With handle: 13" to the base of the handle x 12" wide.


  • 4 mm (US 6) knitting needles, 3.75 mm (US 5) knitting needles, and 4 balls of Worsted Weight Cotton yarn in color of choice, but the pattern shows up best in a solid colored yarn.
