The last blog post has been about vintage tea towel – not much to do with knitting, but I have used them to find inspiration to knit a towel.
I love to take knitting with me at all time. Something you just leave and pick up again without any doubt on where you have to start.
In other words; small and easy!
This summer I have been knitting dish clothes and small towels in cotton and linen yarn with inspiration from the vintage tea towels. I enjoy the coarse linen for my hands and in as dish cloths and I find great satisfaction in knitting them myself – just like my grandmother just to do.
I havn’t any knitting pattern – I just knit.
Some of them with red stribes and some with a checkerboard pattern.
Knitting Pattern – checkerboard
Knit 10 rows knit in the beginning and end of the towel
5 knit in the beginning and end of every row.
