Finished Hand towel
Finished this just a few moments ago, though I'll probably wait to do the other 3 as my hands cramp up something awful working this pattern. Probably just knitting too tight, oh well, have other projects that need doing before I can get back to these.

Wonderful looking towel! I love the color combination, too. Are the other 3 in the same or different colors?

the other 3 will be in different colors, one a dark blue, light blue, and a medium green, the stripe on each will still be white. I had purchased them as a kit from Knitpicks.

It looks great, gotta love Knitpicks. I know about the hand cramping, it seems to always happen when I knit with cotton.

Great hand towel! Love the colors and the pattern. Is this a slip stitch pattern?

No, Claire, the pattern was a little more difficult than a slip stitch, it was k2, yo, k2 pass yo the 2 k stitches, and repeat. the texture is worth it. Although the working of it made my hands cramp up, I suspect that was just from knitting too tight.
