Crocheted Pointed Towel Toppers

December 14, 2013 No comments yet

I have been on a towel topper crocheting frenzy lately. Here are several of my recent finish offs to share. These were done without sewing and just crocheting into the top layer of the towel. The first one is crocheted in blue cotton with the towel topper added along the top edge. The towel is folded in half with the topper then added which creates a double layered towel.

Next is a towel also folded in half and green cotton used to add the towel topper.

Fold the towel exactly in half and using the steel crochet hook to poke holes, Sc evenly along the top edge of towel. (You will be Sc’g through both layers of the towel along the top edge.) I had 60 Sc along the top of the edge but it will vary depending on your stitch placement and yarn weight used. Just try and have an even number of stitches along the top. Otherwise it doesn’t matter how many stitches you have along the top of the towel.

Row 2
Using the G crochet hook, Ch 2, turn. Dc in each st. […]
