How about a bit of linen luxury in the bathroom?
This is an adaptation of the Tonal Blanket pattern which can be found on the Purl Soho website.
The textured slip stitch is amazing and you can choose blocks of colour to create an ombre effect or a more contrasted look.
The towel below turned out to be 85 x 50cm approx. using 3.5mm needles. It took around 3 x 100g skeins of eco-stitch natural sport weight linen (which runs the whole length of the towel) and 4 different colours, 50g of each in hand-dyed sport weight.
The yarn is machine-washable!
One of my knitting friends was brave enough to make a larger, bath towel size. Hers came out at 85 x 130cm on 3.5mm needles and she cast on 161 stitches. She also added an i-cord border.
She very kindly offered to share her photos below. Quantities used were 3 x 100g skeins in eco-stitch natural sport weight and 4 different colours 100g each of eco-stitch hand-dyed sportweight.
