Bar Towel Toppers

October 6, 2019 No comments yet

Here are several Dollar Store bar towels that I have added towel toppers to. I love the thick and absorbent towels but they are a odd width to do a normal double-layer crocheted towel topper. I tried this first one where I didn’t fold over the towel and just crocheted the towel topper along the top edge. It makes for a longer kitchen towel and not sure if I like it or not. This towel topper was crocheted using the waffle towel topper pattern.

Next I folded the towel in half lengthwise. I then added a crocheted towel topper through both layers with the fold on the left hand side. This created a nice thick double layered towel but again I’m not sure about the foldline being on the side.

Here is a closeup of the crocheted towel topper which was created using the pointed handle towel topper pattern.

So what do you think about these Dollar Store bar towel projects? I’d love to hear people’s thoughts and

Crocheted Towel Toppers

I bought several holiday towels after Christmas last year. They were marked down 50% and more on some of these. I decided to start early and add towel toppers to them. I will use them for Christmas gifts and charity auction items for the upcoming holiday season.

All of these towels are what I call double-layered as I don’t cut the towels in half or sew the top edges. I simply fold the towel in half and crochet the towel toppers directly into both layers of the towel. This creates an extra heavy towel which I think is better than the single layer towel with towel toppers.

These two towel toppers were crocheted using my pointed handle towel topper pattern. I should also add that all of my crocheted towel topper patterns are free.

The next towel has the waffle towel topper added to it. I used a red jingle bell for the button closure.

The final towel features my original

Double Layer Towel Toppers

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.
