Amour Hanging Towel - Free Crochet Pattern

Hey Guy's!

Remember when I said I was planning on design a collection of "Rustic" Home Items. Well, Here is the next item on that list; The Amour Hanging Towel.

*** The AD FREE Printable PDF for this pattern can be found HERE.***

If you're anything like me crocheting & knitting dish cloths has to be the quickest way to make a gift for someone. I LOVE working up a stockpile of wash/dish clothes so that I have ready to go gifts on hand. 

This dish towel is made unique because it hangs from your oven handle! I've wanted to design a dish cloth like this for a while, so I am SO HAPPY to finally have done this for you all! 

The yarn I used for this design was Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK. This yarn collection is amazing because of all the different color choices they provide, head on over to LoveCrochet.com and check them out!
