This beginner hand-towel pattern is so full and fluffy that it’s actually luscious. To get the rectangle effect, use alternating increase and decrease rows until the towel is as long as you want. Add an optional crocheted edging and loop to hang the towel from.
Almost every book and class teaches this dishcloth to its new knitters, and for good reason. It’s quick, cheap, and teaches you what you need to know so that you can move on to harder and more interesting projects.
Based on the Aubergine Dreams Neck Warmer by Laura Dianiska, this pattern is suitable for practicing many important beginner skills. The pattern of elongated stitches rising vertically up the work is caused slipped stitches. A good beginner pattern for those just learning how to slip stitches.
