For a long time I have wanted to design some Home Decor pieces and cannot believe it took me so long to do so. I think Lion Brand gave me the push I needed to get to it.

The Catalina Dish Towel is designed to match The Catalina Placemat. I hope you will love working on this Home Decor set. I will be making a few Dish Towels to add to my Website so they will be available to you and I will make some to give as gifts. It has been so long since we have seen most of our friends face to face and during this time, as a family, we have been enjoying working on crafts and sending them in the mail to them. With this we hope that they feel some of the love we put into working on each project while thinking of them.




Well, back to the Catalina Dish Towel... As you might know, I am one of the Freelancer Designers of Lion Brand and when I got the opportunity to design a matching Dishtowel for a placemat, I really wanted to make something that I would enjoy for my own home. Sketching this design was so fun and it works up pretty quick. It was really hard to put it down since with every row you could see how the design starts to appear. This design includes two colors from the 24/7 Cotton Collection from Lion Brand: Magenta and Ecru. It is a bold and elegant contrast and the next ones I will make will be with just one tone.

The Catalina Dishtowel is an easy level knitting pattern and the techniques featured are the knit stitch, purl stitch and the use of three double pointed needles to make the I-cord loop. To get the Knitting Pattern in my Website, please click here.

I will be showing the Dish towels I will work on next to you in my Instagram account: @yessysdesigns and also I will let you know, first, in my Newsletter, when the ones that are Ready to Ship are listed in my Website (To Subscribe to my Newsletter please go to the bottom of my Home Page in my Website here).

Now, did you notice that the pattern just needs Knit and Purl stitches? Just that!! Do not let the I-cord technique intimidate you... there are clear instructions as to how to make one. It is a very pretty and timeless small piece to work on... a Beginner friendly pattern. I have found that when working on more intricate patterns, having an easier pattern to work on is always so welcomed. Let's work on more pretty and cozy Home Decor Pieces that also help the environment.

 Please share your projects that you make with my patterns on Instagram with the hashtag #yessysdesigns and for this specific one, please use also #thecatalinadishtowel so your post will get featured on my Stories and I can also see it. I am so looking forward to that.
