Thank you SO MUCH for sharing the pattern! My fiance will likely be getting this for his birthday!!!

I've always wondered about these towels, though... Are you supposed to do anything to the back to cover up your stitches, or do you just leave it be and nobody is supposed to look at the back? (I frame all of my cross-stitch work or sew it into something like a pillow, so I've never had to figure it out before.)
As soon as I find a fabric I like, I'm going to sew a strip to the back, just behind the stitched area. I'm going to fold under the edges and sew it on, applique-style. Cheesy

You could always use fusable interfacing too. I have a couple baby hats that I embroidered names on and I just found some soft fusable interfacing to iron on to the back, quick and easy.

My friends I am addicted to "crackster".  I think they might be right.
I am interested in personal swaps, just send me a pm!

I love my life, my hubby, my sons, and my 2 crazy dogs!  Isn't life grand?
