There are a few (very few) patterns for towels here at Pattern Central.

For this one, for example the designer gives you an idea of the size and a source for a good yarn that you can throw into the laundry without problems. You could scale up the size and the yarn amount to at least get an estimate of the yardage you'll need for a simialrly patterned towel.
