Crochet Towel Topper Pattern

It’s time for another quick project: the crochet towel topper-free pattern! I love that this is a perfect one-skein project that can be done in a few minutes.

I wanted to add my special touch, so I said the curls! My kids think the towel topper should be named “Octopus Towel Hanger.”

Pin this post for later!
