The Vieux Carré, or Old Square, is the original French name of the French Quarter in New Orleans. This towel was inspired by intricate old world details and luxury. The outer edging mimics picot stitches and fleur de lis. Set out a few of these in your guest bathroom when entertaining, or use pair it with bath products in a sumptuous gift basket.

This crochet pattern is written for the fingertip towel size, and instructions are included for how to modify for hand or bath towel size. Includes 3 photo tutorials for special stitches. Appropriate for a beginner who is confident in basic stitches and wants to try some new stitch motifs.
