FO Friday - Kitchen Towel Toppers

A while back my Aunt Janice asked if I could top some kitchen towels for her.  I, of course, said yes.  She brought me the towels and yarn and I got to work.

I finished for her not one...

Not two...

Not three...

but FOUR towels.

Here's a close up of the top.

And, here is one of them on my stove.

I improvised this design.  I actually tried a couple of different things as I went.  I started with two towels that I cut in half.  I did a blanket stitch across the top and then crocheted away!

The yarn is Red Heart Super Saver in Hunter Green.  This does not come out of my stash numbers because it wasn't in my stash and my aunt bought it.

Don't forget to check out Tami's Amis, Natural Suburbia, and Wisdom Begins In Wonder.

PS. My sister is getting married tomorrow!!!!!!!!!


  1. WOW! Those are great!
    Good luck to your sister and enjoy the wedding:)

  2. How do you put your initial holes in the towels to start your crocheting? I always assumed people just used kitchen towels (vs cutting them), and added the topper?

  3. Congratulations on your sister getting married!

    I absolutely love your towel toppers! I have never done any of those, but they look really cool and useful.

  4. Such a clever idea.

    Congrats to your sister :D

  5. Those kitchen towels are the best! My sister, aunt and grandma make them. Grandma was so funny when she was alive, she was a towel snob. Seriously! She always added ruffle to her edging and would get made if someone didn't. She taught us all how to make them and she expected them to be made her way. I miss that woman...and what an odd memory to think about.

  6. I'd love to see a short tutorial on how you did these towels! I would love to make some, as I remember having these at my grandma's house.
    And good luck and Congrats to your sister! Hope you have a fun day!

  7. *C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S*!* on your sister's marriage! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  8. They look wonderful. I think our household could stand a few of those towels too. Ours always slide off of the places we put them.
