Bryan Car Project: Slip Stitch Dish Towel (2) by Willow Yarns Design Team
Yarn: recycled cotton yarn from a cotton sweater I purchased from goodwill. This is going to be part of multiple towels for my sister for a wedding present. She is all about creative reuse so I think this will be right up her alley. This is my second one for her set.
