The following pattern is my original design.
Please only copy or print this pattern for personal use.
Steel Hooks: Size 00 for crocheting and Size 10 for making the holes across the top of the dishtowel
Yarn: 4 ply worsted weight yarn ( I used Red Heart)
Dish Towel (one that has the same picture on each half)
Button, thread and needle.
Stitches used: ch, sl st, sc, dc, dc dec, tr.
BEGIN: Cut the dish towel in half. Use the #10 steel hook to evenly space 44 holes across the top of the dish towel approximately 1 inch from the cut edge.
ROW 1: Fold the cut edge down twice (just above the holes you made) to form a hem. You can pin the entire hem down or fold as you go. Attach the yarn using the #00 hook in the 1st hole made on the right side of the dish towel. Ch 1. Sc in each hole across the top of the towel. This will secure the hem as well as give you a base for beginning the topper. Ch 1, turn.
