If this is your first try at crocheting a towel topper look for inexpensive dishtowels at the dollar store or at a department store. The materials you will need will be a dishtowel, cotton thread and a size C and G crochet hook to begin your project. Towels can be crocheted with a button or alternate patterns can be used without a button for your towel.
To begin choose a 15 inch wide dish towel (hand towel) to match your yarn or theme of your kitchen.
Next – cut your towel in half, across the width of the towel. (Note: you will be able to crochet two towels using this method.)
Next Step – fold the towel in thirds and lay the towel design side down on a flat surface and fold each side to the middle.
Round 1 – Using a size C crochet hook - 45 single crochet stitches on the cut top of towel; chain stitch three; then turn.
