Free Crochet Hanging Dishtowel Pattern

Kitchen Trio
This may just be one of my favorite patterns yet.  These are handy helpers and very decorative in a kitchen.
A Dishtowel can easily be crocheted in one evening using 100% cotton yarn and a little imagination.
Choose colors to match your kitchen and be sure to make the part that goes around the stove handle large enough to fit.  Each stove is different so it's better to make it a little larger. What I like about crocheting an entire dish towel is that I don't have to cut a normal dishtowel in half and sew it up before crocheting the top. Plus when I need a quick gift I always have yarn on hand but not always an extra dish towel.

This pattern can be shared by linking to the pattern - Do not post elsewhere or try to sell as this pattern is copyright of Craftdrawer

Approximately 6 oz. of worsted weight cotton (about 3 balls)  and a size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook.
