Easter Towel Topper

April 15, 2017 3 comments

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.

More Crocheted Towel Toppers

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.
