Here’s a nice pattern for a classic towel topper for the kitchen. This hangs nicely off the handle on a stove.
Made with 2 strands of yarn held together for extra strength and durability, this works up very quickly. The towel is first folded in half and then stitched across the top using the blanket stitch. This stitch allows you to easily add crochet stitches for the next row.
Use holiday towels for a festive look, or neutral towels to match any kitchen. They are often best sellers at craft events!
I’m participating in the International Crochet Month Designer Showcase with Underground Crafter. Come join the fun! Every day in March, 2019, we’ll highlight a different crochet designer who is also a member of the Crochet Guild of America. Each designer will share a free crochet pattern or a 25% discount on a premium pattern. We’ve partnered with some of our favorite companies to get some great prizes for you — including yarn, crochet hooks, notions, pattern books, and more! Find out more information about participating designers, the schedule, and how to enter to win the prizes on Underground Crafter.

Time needed: 1 hour.
- About 60 yards of worsted weight yarn.
You’ll need some worsted weight yarn. And we’ll be holding 2 strands together at the same time throughout the pattern. I prefer Red Heart Super Saver, which is a 100% acrylic yarn. It is durable and easy to wash.
- Crochet hook.
I’m using a size H crochet hook, which is a 5 mm hook size.
- Yarn needle.
Most kitchen towels aren’t the thick fluffy type. They are usually made of a thinner woven material. This is good news for those of us who want to add crochet to them. A metal yarn needle should be able to easily pierce the fabric to create the blanket stitch along the top edge.
I’m using a 1.5 inch button. I like colorful ones to match the towels, but a nice neutral wooden one also looks very sharp.
- Kitchen towel.
I usually get my kitchen towels at my local discount stores. They are 15″ wide by 25″ in length. The material is just right. It’s not too thick, but not too thin.
