I did break my rule for using the cones of cotton yarn for this towel. You will need 3 balls of each color yarn you choose.
For some reason, the towels take me so much longer than they should. I didn’t have a yarn bowl or holder to keep my yarn in check or help unravel it as I worked.
So I was constantly stopping, unraveling a good length of yarn then starting again. Talk about a slow and painful process.
About halfway through this towel, I broke down and purchased a Yarn Bulter or yarn holder (whichever you like to call it).
I honestly don’t know why it took me so long to get this. It is life changing. If you don’t have one, you really need to get one. I was able to crochet so much faster.
This dish towel ended up measuring 16 inches wide and 25 inches long.
