Simple Lines Dishtowel Knitting Pattern

I love making towels with dish cotton. They are so absorbent and durable, but I was tired of towels falling off the oven handle onto the floor. I needed a set with loops to hang on my cabinet … so ta-da the Simple Lines Towel.


The pattern uses basic stitches in a simple pattern repeat. It’s great for beginners and makes great TV knitting. The added purl line to an otherwise simple stockinette project provides additional interest.
