I hate dish rags, but I LOVE hand towels.

Especially hand towels that really REALLY absorb water.

So I made one.

Heather's Handtowel

Heather’s Handtowel

When What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit? was coming out I needed some mindless knitting to keep me cognitively anchored (ahem) but not overwhelm me.

Enter my very own hand towel.

I blocked mine wet… well… just because that’s what I do when I wash knitted things. It didn’t really need it.

The stitch pattern is easy when you know what you’re doing, but if you’ve never knit twisted stitches, I recommend watching the brief tutorial video that is linked to from the pattern. It’s a private link so you won’t be able to search for it—just use the direct link on page 2.
