Crochet Pattern: Medina Dishtowel

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 2 Comments
If you are somebody that works a lot in the kitchen, by now you know that good absorbent dishtowels are hard to come by. You can search and search and still be unsatisfied. So why not make your own? Choosing a good cotton yarn is the first step. There are many cotton yarns on the market, some which are mixed with other fibers. Cotton is essential for kitchen towels and cloths because of their durability and resistance to fraying. Make as many of these as you might need and never buy another factory-made towel again!

    Very nice to have a pattern for a dish towel as opposed to just dish cloths. Very cute! Thanks for making this a free pattern!
