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.
