Simple hanging kitchen towel, a knitting pattern

 

Materials: Cotton yarn (such as Sugar’n Cream), appropriate gauge needles (I used size 6), stitch marker, button (optional)

I have knobs on my kitchen cabinets, so I made the button hole with the intention of slipping it over the knobs. You could also make the top portion longer (double rows 6 – 11) and attach an actual button for closure if your kitchen cabinets have handles instead.

Top Portion

Cast on 7

Rows 1-3: K across

Row 4: K2, BO 3 for button hole, K2

Row 5: K2, CO 3 to close button hole, K2

Rows 6 – 11: K across

Row 12 (front side): K3, place marker, inc, K1, inc, K3

Row 13 (back side): K3, P3, K3

Row 14: K3, slip marker, K1, inc, K1, inc, K1, K3

Row 15: K3, P5, K3

Row 16: K3, K to marker, slip marker, inc, K1, inc, K to edging, K3

Row 17: K3, P to edging, K3

Repeat rows 16 and 17 until there are 27 stitches total on the needles ending on even row (front side)

Bottom Moss Stitch

Row 1 (back side): K across

Row 2: K across

Row 3: K across

Row 4: KFB across (54 stitches)

Row 5: P1, K1 across

Row 6: K1, P1 across

Repeat rows 5 and 6 until moss stitch portion measures around 10″ in length, or until your run out of yarn :)

Bind off
