These machine-washable and dryable hand towels are knitted from side to side (the cast-on and bind-off edges form the side “selvedges”) in a simple lace pattern formed by multiple yarnovers. To make coordinating washcloths, simply cast on fewer stitches and work fewer rows.

Finished Size: About 15" (38 cm) wide and 27" (68.5 cm) long.

Yarn: Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille (100% cotton; 98 yd [89 m]/50 g): 4 skeins. Shown in #9008 aqua and #6320 sage.

Needles: Size 4 (3.25 mm). Adjust needle size to obtain the correct gauge

Notions: Markers (m); tapestry needle.

Gauge: 16 sts and 25 rows = 4" (10 cm) in seafoam pattern; 18 sts and 29 rows = 4" (10 cm) after machine-washing and drying..
