Dotty Dishtowel & Hanging Towel

The Dotty Dishcloth just got some new friends! Meet the Dotty Dishtowel and Hanging Towel!

These towels are full of so much texture and are made up of a fun combination of stitches! The little ‘bumpy’ stitches are Picot Single Crochet, if you’re unfamiliar with the PSC, check out my blog post HERE to learn it! I have used this stitch for so many patterns (Picot Pillow, Picot Beverage Holder, Picot Ice Cream Holder to name a few). It’s one of my favorites because these mini bobbles add so much dimension!

I used Lion Brand Yarn Re-Up, which is a 100% recycled cotton yarn. This yarn is so affordable and you only need 1 skein for the hanging towel and 2 skeins for the dishtowel! Check out Re-Up HERE and browse all the beautiful color options! I used Grey and Aqua.
