I found this pretty Easter flowered towel at Shopko and turned it into a crocheted Easter gift. I folded it in half and crocheted a pink towel topper onto the kitchen towel.
I used the free crochet pattern called double layered waffle towel topper pattern. The only change I made was for the extra large pink button I added for the closure. Because it was so large, I chained 3 stitches for the buttonhole. I then crocheted a few extra stitches into the buttonhole on the next row to secure the large opening for the button. It worked out great and the button fits through the hole nicely.
I love this double layered, no cutting or sewing towel topper. They make such nice gifts and work up super fast. So if you need a quick gift idea, check out this crochet project.[…]
I crocheted another double layered towel topper which is similar to my pointed handle towel topper. The main difference in this towel topper is that it’s a heavier, more basic pattern for the topper. It has a waffle looking texture to the pattern and so I named it the Waffle Towel Topper pattern.
This towel topper is crocheted using sugar n’cream weight cotton yarn with a G crochet hook. I used a kitchen towel folded in half that requires no cutting or sewing. For more details on how to fold and start a double layered towel topper, see this tutorial link with pictures on how to begin the towel topper.
