    About

    My youngest son is a FedEx driver. He asked me to make hanging kitchen towels for use in the truck.
    Posted pictures to Knitting Paradise and after many requests, wrote up and posted a "recipe" for them to follow. I AM NOT a pattern writer.
    I only used 1 & 1/2 balls (2.5 oz) each. The red, soft ecru and potpourri were leftover cones from other projects.
    The red one goes to my grandson who has just moved into his first apartment and is decorating with black, gray and red.

    Pattern

    Knitted hanging kitchen towels

    This pattern is from:
    Wrote it myself

    Needles & Hooks

    • Circular 4.50mm (US 7) 60cm
    • Crochet Hook 3.50mm (US 4)
    • Single Point 4.50mm (US 7) 60cm

    Accessories

    Other : Smaller crochet hook for working in ends. For the buttons, I chose a matching one for the "public side" and a smaller plain one for strength/stability added on the back.

      Dixie, I see 2 years ago you said this is a freebie pattern but when I select the pattern button nothing happens. Is it possible for you to send it e-mail to me?😊 Thx

      Hi Dixie, I probably should have checked to make sure that the pattern was here before posting my previous comment! Lol I clicked on “Pattern” but nothing appeared. Was your pattern removed? I really would love to have it! Thanks!

      Thank you, Dixie, for posting the pattern and pics of those beautiful towels! I’ve been knitting dishcloths for years (mostly for others, while mine are falling apart! Lol) but have never seen a pattern for towels. I’ll definitely be knitting some now!

      I submitted the pattern/recipe for the towels, crossed my fingers, and SURPRISE, it has been accepted. It's a freebie. Hope ya'll enjoy making them as much as I did.
