For years, my mom has crochets tops on kitchen towels and added a button so they can be easily hung on your stove door handle. I LOVE these towels. I don’t know why. They’re so country and unmodern, but yet <3. The problem has always been that she won’t give me enough of them. Knitted dishcloths? Sure, I have a million of those.
I have three of these crocheted-top kitchen towels.
I asked her more than a year ago how to make them, and I wanted to make them last year. I really couldn’t wrap my mind around how she was telling me to make the base stitches. At Christmas this year, she demonstrated.
And a close-up:
The great result of making these towels myself is that I can make them in solid colors. My mom favors using the towels with designs (not my favorite) and/or using multiple colors of yarn. Now, tan towels with green tops. This was an easy afternoon project, so I’m sure I’ll make more of them while I’m taking it easy on the couch during the pregnancy.
If anyone out there’s interested in a tutorial or pattern, let me know and I can post one with photos! Honest, adding the base level of stitches was by far the hardest and most time-consuming part of this project.
