Kitchen Towel Holder Pattern
I did make one change to the pattern, but this one is almost completely the same...
What I needed:
1 metal clothes hanger
Cotton yarn ... I used Sugar and Cream Cotton Yarn by Lily but this pattern would work with acrylic or wool in either sport or worsted weight
Crochet Hook size I
Row 1: Starting anywhere on the circle, attach the yarn. SC as many stitches around the metal circle as it takes to hide the metal circle. Join with a slip stitch to first sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in same stitch and in each sc around the circle. Join last sc with a sl st to first sc of round. Ch 1, turn,
Row 3: sc in same stitch, sc in next 11sc, ch 1, turn.
Row 4 thru 14: , sc in same stitch, sc in next 11 sc, ch1, turn,
Row 15: sc in same stitch, sc in next 4 sc, ch 2, skip next 2 sc, sc in next 5 sc, ch 1, turn, (The skip 2 sc and the 2 ch stitches make your buttonhole.)
Row 15: sc in same st, sc in next 11 st, ch 1, turn,
Row 16: sc in same st, sc in next 11 st. ch 1, but do not turn.
Now sc in each stitch completely around the piece. Fasten off.
I used a button about 1" across. Fold the top of the piece down until it just touches the circle. Find the button hole and use that as a guide to place your button. Sew the button on using either the same yarn as what was used in the piece or any sewing thread that you like.
Now sit back and enjoy your Kitchen Towel Holder.. ;o)
This is a really quick project. This was crocheted in about an hour last night while watching tv. I hope you enjoy it. It would make great quick gifts for Christmas... throw in a couple of kitchen towels, a few hand knitted dish cloths and there ya' go.. ;o)
The summer sun is still hanging in there giving up 100+ temps every day. Even the birds get all their running around done in the morning or evening..
Have much to do today... Hope your day is good and that you are staying cool.. ;o)
