Landon Hand Towel
"This easy hand towel is worked in the moss stitch aka the linen stitch, which is comprised of simple single crochets and chains. It creates such a beautiful, woven texture, and looks really neat when worked in stripes. This hand towel is perfect for the kitchen, or the bathroom. I use my hand towel purely for drying my hands and decoration, but if you use yours to clean up messes, keep in mind, they may stain your fabric. You'll need some worsted weight cotton yarn - I used WeCrochet Dishie for mine in the Mushroom colorway. A similar yarn to this is Lily Sugar n Cream. You'll also need an H8/5mm crochet hook as well as a G6/4.25mm hook (one for the body and one for the border). For reference, I worked my hand towel up in just over 6 hours. There is a video tutorial included too!"
