Sure, here’s a simple crochet towel topper pattern:

Materials Needed:

  1. Yarn: You can use any worsted weight cotton yarn in your preferred color.
  2. Crochet Hook: Choose a hook size that corresponds to your yarn. A 5.5mm (US I-9) hook is a good starting point.
  3. Button: One small button to fasten the towel topper.
  4. Towel: A plain kitchen towel or hand towel.

Abbreviations:

  • Ch: Chain
  • Sc: Single Crochet
  • Dc: Double Crochet
  • Sl st: Slip Stitch
  • St(s): Stitch(es)

Instructions:

Towel Topper Base:

  1. Start by making a slip knot and chaining 12.
  2. Row 1: Sc in the second chain from the hook and in each chain across. (11 sc)
  3. Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), turn. Sc in each stitch across. (11 sc)
  4. Repeat Row 2 until your piece is long enough to fit the width of your towel, typically around 15-16 inches. This can vary depending on your towel’s size.
  5. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

Button Loop:

  1. Attach your yarn near one corner of the towel topper base.
  2. Ch 10 (or as many as needed to fit your button).
  3. Sl st into the same corner where you attached the yarn. This creates a loop for the button.
  4. Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.

Finishing:

  1. Fold the towel topper in half lengthwise, with the right side facing inwards. You should now have a loop at the top for hanging and a button loop at one corner.
  2. Using the long tail from the towel topper base, sew the two short sides of the towel topper together, making sure to leave the top open for your towel to slide through.
  3. Turn the towel topper right side out.
  4. Attach the button to the opposite corner from the button loop, making sure it lines up correctly to fasten the loop.
  5. Insert your towel through the open top, button the loop over the towel, and your crochet towel topper is ready to use!

This easy crochet towel topper pattern is perfect for adding a decorative and functional touch to your kitchen. You can experiment with different yarn colors to match your kitchen decor or make seasonal variations for holidays. Enjoy your crocheting!
