Ruth's Kitchen Towel

A Free Knitting Pattern


It's been a while since I have shared a free knitting pattern. I recently made a crochet version of this towel. You can find it on Ravelry here. When I was finished with it I knew I wanted to make a knit version and so here it is. 

This is the hanging kitchen towel you always wanted. It is soft with the perfect subtle texture to get your hands dry. It is constructed just right so that it will hang in place without going anywhere.  Make a couple of matching dishcloths for the perfect house warming gift.

Winter Thaw Dishcloth

A Free Knitting Pattern


In February I always get those antsy feelings of wanting winter to be over and for spring to get here. It doesn't help that there is always that one day that comes along in February that gets up into the 60's and melts all the snow, leaving this golden muddy hue in its wake. This time we have seen a whole lot of ice after that thaw. The kids are missing school and going crazy, us along with them. I started this pattern to celebrate the messiness of the season. Even in the messiness there can be beauty.

Just like with all of my tutorials here on the blog, when you are done you will have a dishcloth to use or give away. It's always nice to have something functional to use after we have worked hard to learn something.  The main things you will be learning with this dishcloth is how to do a spike stitch and how to make a decrease using 2 slipped stitches. I'm excited for you to learn these so you can join me in making the triangle scarf with this stitch pattern. (you can find that Pattern Here) There is a sneak peek below.
