Double Layer Towel Toppers

Red Towel Topper

I have been working on a project of crocheted towel toppers. I wanted to be able to create the topper without cutting and eventually not having to machine sew the top of the towel. Another goal of the project was to have a double layer 2-ply towel. Here is my first finished double towel topper below.

Here is a picture tutorial and free crochet pattern below for making a double towel topper.

Fold the towel in half with right sides facing out. Machine stitch along the top edge using a basting stitch.

Then using some cotton blend sport weight yarn and a steel #7 crochet hook, single crochet along the top edge through both layers of the towel.


Here is another method I used where I did not machine stitch along the top edge. The steps are fold, press, pin, and then single crochet along the top edge of the towel through both layers.

Again I used a steel crochet hook #7 to poke the holes for the first row. Then I switched to a “G” crochet hook after the first row to finish the towel topper.


Finished no sew double towel topper which I call the fold and pin method.
