Free Crochet Towel Topper Patterns

Updated on June 16, 2017

I've been crocheting since I was a little girl. Since then I've designed for magazines and offer free patterns at my site.

Crocheted towel toppers are fun to crochet, because they are so quick and easy to crochet. Even a beginner can tackle them. Here you will find about 25 free crochet towel topper patterns. You only need about an ounce of yarn, so you can use up small balls of scrap yarn from other projects if you have them.

For all projects you will need 1/2 of a dish towel. A few use the entire dish towel. For some of the projects you will need to hem the towel. Other patterns show a technique where you don't have to do this.

These make nice gifts, because they are so handy to wipe your hands on in the kitchen. The patterns can be crocheted quickly for when you need a last minute gift. Make several for yourself too. They are great bazaar sellers.

Think beyond dish towels and crochet them for hand towels for the bathroom. After you've crocheted a few of these designs, you'll see that they are so simple that you can design your own. Use free patterns for different flowers and sew them on for a beautiful design.

The towel topper is created worsted weight cotton yarn and a size G crochet hook. You'll also need a 1" and a 2" cabone ring. This would make a nice towel topper for Christmas or all year round.

To crochet this pattern, you'll need a size 1 steel crochet hook and a size G hook. It is crocheted with 4-ply cotton yarn. You'll also need a button to complete the project.

This is another extra pretty towel topper. The towel hangs on a concealed crochet chain, so you can wash the towel without washing the topper every time. I think this is a great idea. You don't have to cut the towel this way either. She designed the topper with worsted weight yarn and a size G hook. You'll also need a button to complete the project.
