Double Layered Waffle Towel Topper Pattern

Posted on June 14, 2015

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 Waffle Kitchen Towel Topper Pattern

Materials needed:
1- Kitchen towel (17 inches wide x 26 inches long used but any size will work)
1-1/2 oz. white Sugar and Cream cotton yarn
1- one inch button

#7 Steel hook
G (4 mm) hook

All directions are in USA terms.

Row 1
Fold the towel in half and use the steel crochet hook to poke holes and then Sc evenly along the top edge of towel making the stitches with the G hook. (You will be Sc’g through both layers of the towel along the top edge.) I had 70 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 just the G crochet hook now, Ch 2, turn. Dc in each st.

Row 3
Ch 2, turn. Dc in every other stitch space between the Dc of prior row.

Row 4
Ch 2, turn. Dc in every st space between Dc of prior row. (Again you want to crochet in the space between the Dc on the row below not in the st.)

Row 5-8
Repeat rows 3-4 twice until you have approx. 10 sts left to begin handle.

Handle Rows 9 – 20
Ch 2, turn and Dc in ea st space. (10 sts counting Ch-2 turning chain as a st). Make sure you continue to work the Dc in the space between the st of prior row.

Tip: Adjust your st count as needed so you are working even on 10 sts. Skip a st or work a decrease as needed to get count to 10.

Row 21
Ch 1, turn. Sc in each of the next 2 sts, Dc in next 2 sts, Ch 1, Dc in next 2 sts, and then Sc in the last 3 sts.

Row 22
Ch 1, Sc in next 4 sts, 3 Dc in the Ch-1 space, and Sc in the last 4 sts.

Row 23
Ch 1, Sc in each st of arrow point along the edge evenly to finish. (12 Sc)

Fold handle over and sew button in place.

    How to crochet a wider towel topper

    Just SC across the top of your towel to start. It really doesn’t matter how wide it is. Try and get an even number of stitches if you can. But even if you don’t, just work until you have 10 sts for your handle. Follow the pattern at that point. Let me know if you have any further questions. Best wishes!

    Hi, I am a beginner and Iā€™m trying to figure out which way you fold the tea towel – length or width ways? Do I crochet along the folded edge or the sides?

    Georgia – I fold the towel in half with the short side along the top to stitch across. I have done it the other way too but like doing the short side best. I stitch along the folded edge through both layers. Check out this towel topper pattern which has more pictures which may help you.

    Let me know if you have any more questions, I will be happy to help.

    Have you done this with different kinds of towels? I was thinking about doing this as Christmas gifts, and I found some cute towels but they are those thinner “waffle towel” type, and I’m not sure if they would hold up as well.

    @Cris – I have used many different towels for this project. I have used the cheap dollar store towels, bar towels, Walmart towels and heavier nicer towels too. They all can be used. Yes the thinner, dollar store type towels won’t last as long but they still look nice for a towel topper. They all can be used but just like anything, the better quality towels last longer and hold up longer.
