Soakin It Up Hair Towel

Soakin It Up Hair Towel crochet pattern

Fed up with wet hair that soaks your shirts after a shower or towels wrapped around your head in an effort to absorb some of the water only to have them fall off every time you move your head? The Soakin It Up Hair Towel is convenient, stylish and pretty darn absorbent (depending on what yarn fiber you use). Work one up for yourself or for a gift today.
