I love projects where the texture is really the star of the show. This is just what Im looking for because I use the chefs trick of tucking a small towel into my waistband when I cook. Great for wiping hands, and I can just toss it in the wash when Im finished. I love the button tabs, too. Thats the perfect way to air dry them without worrying that theyll be accidently knocked on the floor.

I knew this waves stitch looked familiar to me. It is the counterpart to the dish cloths that were posted a few weeks ago. It is truly beautiful to look at. What I like best about the way she's designed this towel is that it is double looped (double "handles") at the top, which means when it hangs it will hang straight and flat and will help the towel to dry faster. awesome towel!

You're right. This would make a nice gift set, or even a set to sell at a craft bazaar.
