Part 1 o f Towel 2:
In this post you will do exactly what you did in the beginning of the first towel. Here is a recap of what we did. (You may go ahead and prepare your next towel if you’d like)
Starting with the other half of your towel (from cutting your original towel)
Turn under raw edge and whip stitch across using your matching thread.
You can use the zig zag stitch on the sewing machine
With the pointed end of your crochet hook poke holes ¼ inch apart, just below your hem and inside the side hem on your towel. If your hook doesn’t work use closed pointed scissors being careful not to make the hole bigger than your hook. It is best to only make one or two holes as they close up fast.
Row 1: 2 sc in first hole, ch 1, * sc in next hole, ch 1 * repeat from * to * across to last hole and work 2 sc in last hole, (30 sc, 27 ch 1 sps) Join us on Thursday Nov. 5, 2015 for the next part.
I hope you’ll join the fun!
Thanks for crocheting~along with me!
