STARS & STRIPES POTHOLDER SET
Since designing the Gingerbread Man Kitchen Towel, I've had many ask me to design other crochet keyhole towels for all other holidays and for year-round use. Add a little Fourth of July, red, white and blue, crochet decor to your space with the Stars and Stripes Hand Towel, my latest crochet keyhole towel design. YARN Cotton is the go-to fiber for crochet dish cloths, dish towels, and hand towels as it's the most absorbent. There are several cotton yarns out there that would be perfect for this project, but I chose to use Lily Sugar n' Cream 100% worsted weight cotton yarn. Lily Sugar n' Cream is available in 39 colors so I was able to find the perfect colors I needed for this project within the same yarn line.
