Crocheted Tea Towel Topper

Hi everyone, I'm Darlene and I am so happy you decided to join me.

Today I am sharing my latest crochet project - crocheted tea towel holders.

They have been on my list for quite some time and I finally got around to doing it. I had an idea of what I wanted but it sorta came together once I had the yarn and crochet hook in my hands.

I knew I wanted a ring to hold the towel. My first thought was shower curtain rings but I didn't have any extras just laying around the house and I didn't want to purchase them.

Crocheted Tea Towel TopperI was absolutely delighted to find a set of bracelets at the dollar store. They were perfect and so pretty.



I made this first tea towel holder with the jade bracelet for my daughter who loves green.

I started with single crochet then changed to the star pattern for the front.

I decided to make my own button because I could make it the right size and with the same yarn as the rest of the holder making it easy to coordinate.

I ended up making four crocheted tea towel holders. The green one, then a brown, then burgundy then white. They are going to be Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers.

When you're starting a project do you usually have it all planned out? Or just go with the flow?

  1. Darlene these are so pretty. I know I'm always having problems with my towels and not having a place to hang them. This would be the perfect solution and it is also a great Christmas gift.
