Twelve Weeks of Gifting: Dish Towel Set

Well folks, we made it! Welcome to our very last installment in our free pattern series: Twelve Weeks of Gifting. The grand finale and proverbial icing on the cake is our very favorite, ever popular Dish Towel Set pattern! So simple and wonderfully giftable, this is a great pattern for any knitter. I love seeing these projects knit up, tied with a pretty ribbon and gifted with a piece of handmade soap for a perfect mother's gift, birthday or baby shower gift.

Make sure to pop over and pick up your copy of the Dish Towel Set through Tuesday and get crafting in the last few days before Christmas.
