Diagonal Cotton Dish Towel with Ring

Posted on September 24, 2012

I present my diagonal cotton dish towel that I crocheted that features a ring as a hanger. I love using the round recycled rings as I can hang up my towel over any hook or knob in the kitchen. I crocheted one kitchen towel using regular weight cotton and another using sport weight cotton below.

Sport weight cotton hanging towel.
