(finished size is about 13x16.5)
I used 100% cotton Lily Sugar and Cream yarn for this project - works great for kitchens - very absorbent - and the tunisian crochet-knit stitch is very dense - can also be used for potholder.
You will need size K tunisian hook and at least 1 skein of each color you choose - I used cones, so if you use the small cotton skeins, get 2 of each color, just in case.
NOTE - Tunisian tends to curl - by beginning with a few SC rows will help your towel to NOT curl - PLUS, if you still see you are curling too much - go back and use a larger hook, like L
ALSO - stop every few rows and pull and shape your piece - will also help with curling
With size K (or L) tunisian hook, CH31
ROW 1 - SC in next CH, SC across (30 CH)
next 4 ROWS - TC
next 2 ROWS - TC
repeat till you have 8 rows of RED and 7 rows of white - will END with a RED row
(WHITE) next ROW - SC across; CH1, turn
When you are starting your SC rows, go down to the bottom of the last TC stitch - you will avoid having holes - if you have questions - feel free to email me and I will try to help.
*SC around towel, with corners being (2SC, CH1, 2SC) - if this is too loose; join; CH1*, turn
REPEAT SC around towel again - if you want more rounds, repeat till don; join and fasten off
