Cozy Kitchen Towels Free Pattern

Set of 2 cozy kitchen towels in a textured stitch. One is blue and white and has 3 snowflakes. The other is Ecru and has 3 leaves in  yellow, orange and green colors

Do you like to change your kitchen decor for the seasons? Spice up your autumn and winter with these cozy kitchen towels. Because they are made with cotton and textured, they are soft, yet durable.

Both of these towels are included in this one pattern. They both feature the same textured stitch. Falling leaves adorn the Autumn Solstice towel while snowflakes adorn the Winter Solstice towel. Make them both to beautify your kitchen through the holidays. Make them as gifts to give your loved ones. You can make some without adornment for everyday use. Quick and easy to make. They can hang from a stove handle, refrigerator door, or cabinet.
