Everyone loves a cheerful kitchen full of delicious aromas, family hubbub, and plenty of conversation. Cleaning up the kitchen? Not so much.
But when these pretty Kitchen Casuals Hanging Towels from I Like Crochet hang by your sink, you’ll approach dish washing with a whole new attitude! Worked in the plush Tunisian crochet stitch with absorbent cotton yarn, this dishcloth pattern is both pretty and practical.

You can also whip them up for friends, and a set of these towels makes a terrific housewarming gift. Don’t know the kitchen color scheme? No problem! Just use neutrals that go with everything.
A word about Tunisian crochet: This dense style of crochet, also called Afghan crochet, creates a textured pattern that has a cushy feel. You work the stitch on special hook with a combination of crochet and knitting techniques. If that sounds tricky, don’t worry—you’ll love this stitch and will want to use it again and again.
This pattern is another winner from crochet pattern designer Kristi Simpson. Everyone loves her designs—they’re all so fresh and pretty! We are so lucky to have her among the designers who create patterns for I Like Crochet and you.
