Published July 16, 2018

This towel is so full and fluffy that it’s actually luscious. It’s adapted from the Ubiquitous Dishcloth and will make for a slightly more interesting challenge.

To get the rectangle effect, you start increasing just as with the Ubiquitous Dishcloth. Then, you alternate an increase row with a decrease row until the towel is as long as you want. Then it’s decrease rows all the way home to make the edges come to a point.

Add an optional crocheted edging and loop to hang the towel from.
