Sumptuous and substantial, cozy and beautiful, our Cotton + Linen Bath Wrap is very good at making you feel great. Stepping out of the bath, lounging poolside, or hitting the beach, this is the perfect towel for a little R and R!

A simple play of stockinette and reverse stockinette divides the Cotton + Linen Bath Wrap into three triangles. This subtle shift in stitch pattern applied to a bold geometric layout makes for an easy knit and an interesting design.

And that’s just the bones… The real fun begins when you cast on with our new Lantern cotton-linen blend! This fiber works like a charm for drying off, but it also has a decadent heft and soft and nubbly texture that just feels wonderful, as worthy of coveting as any hotel towel, but better because it’s made by you!

You may find it helpful to place a removable stitch marker or piece of scrap yarn on the right side of the work so you can easily stay oriented.
