Revisiting the Madison Dishtowel

Since creating this pattern last year, I’ve since revisited and revised the pattern to be more in tune with my other crochet dishtowel patterns that have since been released.

What’s Changed:

  • Medium Worsted Weight Yarn: previously this pattern used DK, but the availability of cotton #4 medium weight yarn is much better than a dk weight yarn. This also helps cut down on the yardage needed to make this kitchen towel.
  • Number of Rows: with a larger weight yarn comes an easier way to build up the pattern, so you don’t have to stitch as much to get to the end 🙂
