Yarn: 3/15, or 2 strands of 2/24 Tension 6 or appropriate for the yarn 1 inch button
Take a full kitchen towel fold in half and steam, mark with washable ink the center fold line. Put the towel on 44 needles by poking the needles through the towel on the line having the back side of the towel facing you. I use the gold bar from the Garter Bar to lock the needles in place to make this process easier. One half of the towel will be laying on the needle bed, so if there is oil on the bed you may want to cover it. Double "e" wrap cast on with your yarn. To double "e" wrap, wrap the first needle, then wrap the next needle and the first needle in the hook, pulling the first needle back through the towel, I find I had to close the latch before pulling through. Continue across all the needles wrapping two needles together and pulling one back.
Fold the towel half that is lying on the bed down to expose the stitches on the machine. Program in pattern # 30 from Stitch World, or #45 from Stitch World III. This is also the same design as used for the Dishcloth above. Use the double length variation setting and KC-1. RC000. Knit 1 row to select needles. Studio and Silver Reed owners will find the same pattern as the dishcloth above and follow your manuals for tuck knitting. Set the Carriage for Tuck Knitting and knit in Tuck to row 32. Decrease 1 stitch both sides on every other row to 20 stitches in work. Remember to return the end needle to D position after each decrease. Set Carriage to knit plain stockinet and knit to Row 86. Put all stitches left of 0 in hold position and knit to R 95 on the right side. (this is the making of the buttonhole). Break Yarn. Put right side stitches into hold and move carriage to left. Put left stitches into upper work position, knit to row 103. Take hold off and knit 2 rows over all stitches. Decrease 2 stitches with 2--prong transfer tool on both sides every row to 4 stiches in work. Bind off with latch tool. Sew button under the button hole and work in yarn ends. Your towel is ready to hang up or use for a quick gift.
