More Crocheted Towel Toppers

Posted on December 14, 2011

I have been on a crocheted towel topper kick lately. I have crocheted several different ones including ones with rings and those with button closures. I love doing the no-cutting and no-sewing toppers with double layered towels as they are so nice and thick.

Here is the free crochet pattern and picture tutorial for making double layered towel toppers. The method I use is to just fold the towel in half and using a small steel crochet hook, single crochet the base row through both layers along the top of the towel edge. Once this base row is complete, you switch over to a larger hook and the towel topper works up quickly using only about an ounce of yarn.

I added a jingle bell for the button closure on this towel. Just chain 2-3 stitches for a larger button opening than the original pattern calls for when you crochet the buttonhole.

So if you need a last minute gift idea, grab a towel and some yarn and crochet one of these pretty towel toppers. They really are a wonderful handcrafted gift.

    How many stitches do you need for the first row?

    @Jeannette – Just try and keep it an even number. I just poke holes across the top edge not counting the number of stitches. I just place the stitches evenly along the top edge and do as many as I need to cover the top edge. An even number works best but that doesn’t matter either as you can always adjust the pattern as you work up to make sure it comes out right for the handle. Hope this helps. Email me back if you have any problems.
