I recently discovered that crocheted tea towels actually do work really well at absorbing water! I have used crocheted dishcloths many times but I’ve never thought to try a crocheted dishtowel before. I always thought they wouldn’t work very well for some reason. But I was very wrong! They are great at absorbing and drying dishes and drying hands!
This week I have created a roundup of 10 free crochet tea towel patterns for you to make. I recommend you crochet tea towels in either cotton, or linen yarn.
Let me know how your’s turns out and what you think of your crocheted tea towels! What fiber do you prefer crocheting your tea towels with?
