Retro Christmas Tree Towel
Retro Christmas Tree Towel

When each holiday rolls around it brings with it the desire to crochet something cheerful & festive to display in my home! Although I love to create designs that are functional (and this one is functional), I’m not sure I’ll be able to bring myself to actually use it for more than a decoration in my kitchen. I can hear my husband already, “You are hanging up another Christmas towel and we’re not allowed to use it?” lol I’ve been doing this for years with little store bought hand towels so he’s used to the routine.

This is gorgeous. Both my mom and grandma had these in their kitchen. But it was, as you say, only for show. Just like the living room or parlor if you prefer. I have a few that were handed down to me. I will display them. I know my mom is watching down at me.

Im in complete agreement with princess6860504. I well remember my Scots grandmother having several special Christmas touches in her kitchen during the season, and Ill never forget using one of her tea towels to actually dry a dish. I thought I would never hear the end of it. No, while this piece could be utilitarian, I would recommend it strictly as a decoration.

We all know this towel would be strictly for the eyes only! Ha! But I do wonder if this towel can indeed serve its function without coming apart or something. I am always leery of cotton yarn dish towels and similar projects where the pattern requires many color changes. I worry that it may fall apart in the wash! This is why I normally do not choose a project like this- but, it is too beautiful to pass up! Definitley would use for decoration only in my house.

This is such a classic / retro pattern that I bet almost everyones Mom or Grandma used to have these hanging in her kitchen. Thanks so much for including a stitch diagram with the tutorial. I can follow along to the diagrams much better than to print instructions and usually they are more accurate. These bring back such fond memories.
