Better living through fibre

Per contra Hand Towel!!

Well, I promised a pattern & now am delivering!  It was made for DH on his (surreal age) birthday, August 14th.  Please do bear with me – this is my first written pattern.  The E & OE at the end may be familiar to some… it stands for Errors & Omissions Excepted.  You will always find it on a lawyer’s bill.  I’m happy to clarify/ make revisions – just let me know if you have any issues or challenges.

The FO looks like this:

What’s in the name?  Well, per contra means “on the other hand.”  The towel wants to be your substitute for select-a-size paper towels in the home.  It’s a quick knit from the bottom up with all-over cabling that gives the towel massive ‘sponge pockets.’  No more tearing sheets for simple things like drying-off fruits!

Hope you find this a fun knit.  Good luck changing habits! Talk to me about knitting these on commission for you – good for stocking stuffers!
