Crochet Towel Topper

Free Towel Holder Pattern

A crochet towel holder is a fun way to secure your dish towel and a good way to use up scrap yarns. This easy pattern works up pretty well and is a beautiful way to add to the beauty of your kitchen.

Easy crochet kitchen towel holder pattern

Most times, we have lots of ends around the house, this free towel holder pattern would be of use for those ends. I love that you can customize this to fit your toppers and hang them beautifully in your kitchen.

Recently, I am revamping my kitchen and these toppers with rings came in handy adding beauty to my kitchen. I have added an elastic hair band for flexibility.

This free towel hanger pattern also works faster, in no time, you can make yourself many and even gift this to your friends.

Have you ever crocheted around hair ties before? Seems like my favorite thing to do these days. I made a cute low ponytail headband using this technique and have also added a video to help you work through this pattern.

These kitchen towel toppers can be used to secure and hang your store-bought dish towels or you can easily work up some beautiful crochet kitchen towels
