I wanted to crochet while sitting outside… away from my computer. So I grabbed a half of a hand towel, my sharpened 4 MM crochet hook and a few shades of blue Peaches and Creme cotton yarn.
While sitting there brain storming and wondering if I should freehand this one or just go ahead and write the pattern, I decided to do both. I wanted to freehand something so simple… with easy step by step instructions that anyone could follow it.. no matter what yarn or hook they used… or how long they have been hooking.
Note- To Sharpen an aluminum crochet hook, you just need to use a knife sharpener.
CH – Chain
SC – Single Crochet
SC DEC – Single Crochet Decrease
Supplies (The supplies I used are listed in the top paragraph of this post)
1 inch button
1/2 a hand towel
Step 1 – SC across the cut side of the towel with an even number of stitches. This time, I folded the cut end back while crocheting… it did make it slightly cleaner than not folding.
Step 2. CH 1. Turn. SC DEC across.
Step 3. CH 1. Turn. SC DEC once at the start of the row and once at the end of the row. While SC in each stitch between.
Repeat Step 3 until you only have 5 stitches.
Step 4: CH 1, Turn. SC into each stitch across.
Repeat step 4 twelve times.
Step 5. CH 1. Turn. SC into first stitch. CH 3. SC into last stitch.
Step 6. CH 1. Turn. SC into first stitch. 4 SC into CH 3 space. SC into last stitch. Finish off and attach a button where Step 4 started.
I so enjoy all your crochet patterns. Your towel toppers are so nice. I crochet hats for cancer and newborns as well as prayer shawls. Thank you for giving us patterns.
Love your patterns! Will you suggest a good source for the sharpened crochet hooks?
Thank you much:)
Yes! You can purchase one here –> http://sharpcrochethook.com/
Or you can use a knife sharpener and sharpen a hook yourself. I sharpened a 5 mm aluminum hook.
