A quick solution to those wandering hand towels that tend to clutter the counters.
The main color is Red Heart Spring Green.
To start with, you'll need a hook small enough to pierce through the towel, but big enough to work with the thickness of the yarn. In this case, I used a 1.75 mm steel hook.
I cut a towel in half and worked a row of SC around each corner and across the rough edge.
Once the first row is done, I switched to a 3.75 mm hook.
2nd row is backloop HDC
3rd row is DC and then I join this row with a SL st
The strap is 6 DC stitches wide: 2 DC, and the ridge is made with 2 BPDC or 2FPDC, then 2DC. Here is the back slit showing the slip stitch join and ridged strap:
To make the "button" hole, CH2, DC, TRC, CH3, SL st in the back ridge of the 2nd chain from hook, CH, TRC in next st of strap, DC, HDC.
You can use a one inch button or a flower for the front. The flower I used is here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=381407.msg4512699#msg4512699
