Allium Dish Towel (Free Pattern)

With this pattern, I created a functional towel with treble crochet bands at either side and along the middle to be used as loops for easier storage. I tend to store my dish cloths on magnetic hooks on my fridge between uses, so I took that into account while making the towel.

For a project like this, yarn content is particularly important. Most synthetic fibers don’t retain water particularly well. Cotton, however works really well for this purpose. I used Lily Sugar n’ Cream yarn, a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn for this project. I have found that this yarn isn’t a flexible as other worsted weight yarns I’ve worked with and since it isn’t a mercerized cotton yarn, it does have some tendency to split on the hook.
