Crocheted Towel Toppers

May 10, 2018 1 comment

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[…]

Kitchen Towel Toppers

January 24, 2018 No comments yet

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.[…]

Holiday Crocheted Towel Topper

December 17, 2017 3 comments

I am busy finishing up a few last minute Christmas gifts. I love crocheting towel toppers and using holiday towels make wonderful gifts. Here are a few I crocheted using the double-layer method. You fold over the towel and crochet through both layers to create a useful kitchen towel and an attractive gift.

These were crocheted using the free pointed handle towel topper pattern. I added a jingle bell for the closure in place of a button.

These are fun and quick projects. You can crochet the complete towel topper in just a matter of a few hours. So if you are in need of a last minute gift, consider hand making a gift which will be long remembered after a store bought item.[…]

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.[…]

Crocheted Edging on Dishcloth

December 4, 2016 No comments yet

Need a quick and easy gift idea? How about crocheting around the edges of a store-bought dishcloth. Here are a few inexpensive dishcloths I bought and by adding a quick handmade edging you have a pretty little gift.

Here is a closeup showing the simple single crochet edging.

To crochet the edging around the dishcloth, I used a small C (2.75 mm) crochet hook. It easily goes through the thin dishcloth and just attach at any corner.[…]

Christmas Towel Toppers

Crocheting towel toppers for Christmas gifts has been at the top of my project list this year. Here are a few towels I made using the double layered method that requires no cutting or sewing. Just click on the link for a picture tutorial that will show how easy these double layer towels can be crocheted. I love these towels as they are double thick and hold up longer than the thin kitchen towels.

All of these towel toppers were crocheted using the waffle towel topper pattern. The red Christmas tree towel is a smaller novelty towel that I bought for 80 cents each. Just fold the towel in half […]

Double Layered Waffle Towel Topper Pattern

June 14, 2015 6 comments

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.

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.

These towel toppers were made using my free crocheted pointed handle towel topper pattern. They require no cutting and no sewing of the towels. Several people have asked me about the number of stitches to do along the top. The answer is […]
