One of the best gifts I got as a kid was a personalized beach towel. I still use it today, some 20 years later: it’s a great size to pack if you’re traveling and I always know that it’s mine. For a long time, I’ve wanted to crochet a towel. I finally did. Using 100% cotton yarn, I made this white, yellow, and orange towel. The best thing about it: even though it’s meant to be a beach towel, it can also double as a child’s blanket.
