After our last crochet-themed post, we had a few requests for the pattern to make this little crocheted towel holder. So here you go! I'll also put one up for sale in my Etsy shop if you just don't see yourself making one. Enjoy!Towel Ring Pattern
*Size H (5.00mm) crochet hook
*Two strands of cotton yarn held together (we like Lily's Sugar 'n Cream)
*Button (approx. 3/4" to 1")
Stitches used: hdc, crossed hdc (explained in this post), magic ring technique
Using the magic ring technique, create ring and ch 2. Do 30 hdc around ring, sl st to first hdc. Turn. Pull yarn tail if needed to make ring tight, but not so tight that the stitches get bunched up.
Ch 2 (counts as first hdc), crossed hdc across. End with hdc in last st. Ch 2, turn. Repeat for 10 rows. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Fold tab over to top of ring. Position and center button under tab on first row of crossed hdc. Make sure it can squeeze between stitches (that's your makeshift buttonhole). Sew on button. Enjoy your towel ring!
P.S. We've had quite a few comments asking what the stitch abbreviations mean and other basic crochet questions. We recommend you ask a friend to show you the basics, and find a book or CD-ROM that explains the terms and stitches in detail before beginning our crochet projects. Although they're all quite simple patterns, we've found you'll only get frustrated if you haven't practiced the basics first!
