Kitchen Towel Toppers

Posted on January 24, 2018

I crocheted several kitchen towel toppers last month for gifts. Now that Christmas is over, I can share them here on my blog. It seems that everyone enjoys receiving these handmade towels so every year I crochet a few of them for friends, co-workers, and family. I do try and not give them every year to the same people as I don’t want them to get tired of receiving them.

My towels are double layered as I fold the towels in half and then crochet through both layers to add the tops. The nice thing is that there is no cutting or sewing needed to begin crocheting the towel topper onto the towel.

These crocheted towel toppers were all crocheted using my free pointed handle towel topper pattern. It is a very easy crochet pattern that requires less than 2 ounces of cotton yarn. I made the buttonholes a bit bigger for the larger jingle bells by chaining 3 stitches rather than 2. It doesn’t change the overall pattern but allows for a larger button to be used for the closure.

Here is one other that I crocheted using an inexpensive kitchen towel. It is amazing how just a simple towel can be transformed into a beautiful handmade gift. Just add a pretty button, jingle bell, or other fun item for a closure. Look for those marked-down novelty towels after the holidays and mix and match your yarns to create your own beautiful towel toppers.
