Misty flower hanging towel*

Misty flower hanging towel

Materials: H hook, stitch markers, a button and small amounts of 5 different colors of cotton yarn, I used Lion Brand.
You will need to make 2 flowers from the misty rag pattern. Mark the top stitch of every fourth petal with a stitch marker, pin, etc.

Attach green colored yarn to any marked stitch with a slst, ch6, 3dc in joining st, *ch1, skip the next petal, 3dc in top st, ch1, (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in next marked st, repeat around, ending with 2dc in the first st to complete pattern, slst to third ch. Do not turn your work.

Round2: ch1, (slst, ch6, 3dc) in ch3 space, [*ch1, 3dc in next ch1 space, repeat from * 2x. ch1, (3dc, ch3, 3dc) in ch3 sp] repeat inside brackets around, ending with 2dc in first st to complete pattern. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Round3: attach chocolate colored yarn to any stitch and sc around each square. With back sides together, sc through both squares down one edge. Do not fasten off. Continue to sc around the entire rectangle shape. Fasten off and weave in ends.

I added a sc row of orange on top.

Not the easiest way, using a magic ring.
For the large granny rectangle, I needed Crochet Cabana’s help. Click here for different ways to crochet a granny rectangle. I used method 4. Sc along top edge with orange and sew to the bottom of the flower rectangle.

Still looks like a square to me.

Whew! OK, It's a rectangle.

At this point, I knew I wanted to keep it.

Rows1-2: sc 5x. Ch1, turn. (5sc)

Rows28-29: dc across. Ch1, turn. Fasten off and weave in ends. Sew to the top the flower rectangle with orange.

The stitch marker indicates where I started.
Trim: with chocolate, attach yarn to first sc on the left bottom corner of the flower rectangle with a sl st. Single crochet down along the edge of the granny rectangle. 3sc in the ch3 space. Single crochet along bottom edge. 3sc in the ch3 space. Single crochet up along side of granny rectangle. Continue to sc in BLO up along the side of the flower rectangle, marking the first stitch made on that rectangle. Single crochet in both loops around the strap. Single crochet BLO down the side of the flower rectangle. Continue to single crochet in BLO to the marked stitch on the opposite side of the granny rectangle. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
