My mother didn’t get any birthday presents from me this year, but when she mentioned she could use some new dish cloths, an idea was born.

I’ve wanted to try some of the patterns in the new Mason-Dixon book for a while, and especially this cute mitered handtowel:

Pattern: Mitered hanging towel from Mason-Dixon Knitting: Knitting outside the lines

Yarn: Idena Lingarn (50 % cotton, 50 % linen), 3 balls (for the towel and two matching dish cloths).

Needles: 4.5 mm

Modifications: Only to the top. My mother has no suitable rod to hang the towel from, so I changed the top to a simple buttonhole.
