Bamboo is by far my favorite yarn. This is a 70% bamboo 30% cotton blend. Being the very last of this particular yarn in my cupboard, this dish towel ended up quite small, but cute.
A friend of mine visiting from Cape Town saw a similar one in my kitchen and asked me to make her one, so voila. It is a fine thread so I crocheted with a double strand using a 4.5mm hook. It is simply a 41 ch foundation. 2dc (2sc if you are American) in 3rd chain from hook and then in every 2nd chain across. 1ch turn and 2dc in every 2nd st across, repeated for as many rows as you like.
It’s fun to be able to make up a little gift like this in such a short time.
