Re: Kitchen Cotton (Worsted Weight cotton) - Towel Patterns?

I prefer simple garter-stitch utility cloths. They absorb well. They don't dry very quickly though because the rows are dense.

I wouldn't waste my time with a bath towel considering that after use it will sag and remain damp for quite a while. Face cloths made of regular kitchen cotton are okay, but not as soft as terry.

The corner-to-corner garter-stitch pattern is popular and makes a practical cloth. You can find lots of versions with a simple search.
