Plastic Canvas Projects Creating Plastic Canvas Towel Toppers and Holders

Plastic Canvas Towel Toppers
Most of the time I crochet my towel toppers by either crocheting around the top of the towel or making a separate towel topper. What I love about the plastic canvas towel topper projects is how easy they are to match with any kitchen or towel that you choose. Plus you can make these in order to hang different towels on any one topper so easy to mix and match.  The basic pattern is cutting out the shape, choosing your pattern and yarn and adding some lace and buttons.
So easy and fun to make for all of the seasons throughout the year!
These cute towel toppers are really handy in the kitchen! All are made using 7-count plastic canvas. Instructions are included for attaching a purchased towel. Tab is made to button for easy hanging. Each topper measures approximately 7 1/8" across x 5 3/4".

Eleven Colors Blend in the Free Hue Shift Crochet Afghan Pattern

Hue Shift Crochet Afghan - a Free Crochet Pattern
Hue Shift Crochet Afghan - a Free Crochet Pattern
What I like about this free crochet afghan pattern is how well the colors blend together to give an even ship from one color to the next. The pattern is a spin off of a knitted Hue Shift Afghan .  The afghan is crocheted in four pieces and then seamed together to make one. The directions make this afghan easy enough to follow for the experienced crocheter.
 Each of the four pieces begins at one corner, and mitered squares are crocheted directly onto the existing work.

Made with simple single crochet mitered squares and finished off with a darker border, the Hue Shift Afghan is a deceptively simple pattern that explores color in a new and creative way!
