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.

Difficulty: MEDIUM


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.

ROW 2: Sl st in 1st sc, ch 3, dc in each rem sc across (44 dc). Ch 3, turn.

ROW 3: Dc in next 20 dc, dec over next 2 dc. [ * yo, insert hk in next st, yo, draw through 2 lps. Rep from * once more. (3 lps on hk) yo, draw through all 3 lps ] Dc in last 21 dc. Ch 3, turn.

ROW 4: * Sk next dc, dc in next dc. Repeat from * across. (22 dc). Ch 3, turn.

ROW 5: Dc in each dc. Ch 3, turn.

ROW 6: Dc in next 9 dc, dec over next 2 dc (refer to row 3), dc in last 10 dc. (21 dc) Ch 3, turn.

ROW 7: Rep Row 4. (11 dc)

ROWS 8-9: Rep Row 5.

ROW 10: Rep Row 4. (6 dc)

ROWS 11-21: Rep Row 5.

ROW 22: Rep Row 5, but Ch 1 instead of 3 at the end.

ROW 23: Working in between the 3rd and 4th dcs on Row 22, work 8 tr in that sp. Sl st in last st, turn.

ROW 24: * Ch 3, sc in next st. Rep from * across the tr sts. Sl st in the last st.


FINISHING: Sew a button on the topper in the center of row 8. The button hole is the center of the 8 tr stitches on row 23.
