Spruce up your summer kitchen with an entire set of fresh flower hand towel. I think these would be an adorable Mother’s Day gift for that very special Mom in your life. The pattern written by Rebecca Mercier, has 3 unique centers which makes each towel different from the next. When deciding to make a hand towel you have to take the fiber content into account. We decided to knit ours with Mission Falls 1824 cotton because you can machine wash and dry this yarn without worrying about any consequences.
Cotton is also a better fiber to use when making something that is going to be used with water, it wicks away moisture and captures liquid in the fiber to make clean up easier. Cotton has been spun, woven, and dyed since prehistoric times, so Leslie and I were thinking it must be good! You can make your set all the same color or mix it up with different colored petals, which was Leslie’s original thought that I vetoed. I hope you guys enjoy this as we crack up about our writing skills. -B
