Cheerful gingham bands trim this slightly textured dishtowel at either end. The size of the towel can be adjusted to suit your needs. Lighter weight cotton /linen yarn creates a towel with body, without bulkiness.

Directions are given to make a 12” x 17” towel, with guidelines given to assist you in making the towel larger or smaller.
