Not quite art pieces, but they do the job: use up the stash AND new kitchen towels.
Pattern: Free from RadianLace
Stitch pattern: hand manipulated tuck every three needles alternating every three rows: two rows of tuck, one row plain knitting.
Yarn: Peaches and Creme 1 ball per towel. Except of the white and green one, for some reason I ran out of yarn way before I finished the body of the towel. I used white coned P&C.
Others: I had to spray the yarn with upholstery silicone because the yarn was too dry to run smoothly through the machine.
Time per towel: aprox 30 minutes.
I knit four rows by hand, then hung on the machine, the 'button' was also knit by hand, easier and faster than dealing with a dangling towel from 6 stitches on the machine.
Here again my dislike for variegated yarn, it never fails, see those awful white spots?
