Crochet Towel Topper Pattern

When I was a kid, there was always a towel or two hanging from the oven. I never really realized until I got older that the towels had a topper crocheted onto them to make them easier to hang. It's one of those things that you see and it just brings back childhood memories of the house you grew up in. Recently my mom brought me some towels and asked if I knew how to add the topper, I didn't exactly know but I knew that I could figure it out.

I was so excited, not only to come up with a pattern that I hadn't done yet but to make something that reminded me of my childhood home. I can't wait to run out and buy myself some new towels so I can add toppers to them, because let's be honest, mine always end up on the floor. Between the dogs, bunnies and a toddler, nothing stays in place long.

Materials Needed:
  • Tea Towel
  • Scissors
  • Yarn (weight 4, 100% acrylic or cotton)
  • E/3.50 MM Hook
  • I/5.50 MM Hook
  • 1 Inch Button
  • Yarn Needle
Step 1: Cut your towel in half.

Step 2: (Optional) Pre-cut the holes in your towel with a small hole punch, scissors, or your crochet hook -or- you can just poke the holes as you go with your hook (this is what i did), they don't have to be perfectly straight, you won't be able to tell.

Step 3(Row 1): Using your E/3.50 hook, insert your hook into the towel to attach the yarn and chain 1,and SC 40 across the top of your towel ( I like to start by putting one hole on the side of the towel by the corner so the corner kind of folds back and doesn't stick out)

Rows 2-3: Switch to I/5.50 hook, chain 2, turn, HDC in every stitch (40)

Rows 4-5: Chain 2, turn, HDC in first stitch, *skip next stitch, HDC in next stitch*, repeat from * to * until last stitch, HDC in last stitch

Row 6: Chain 2, turn HDC in first stitch, *skip next stitch, HDC in next stitch*, repeat from * to * until end of row, you should be left with 6 HDC

Row 7-17: Chain 2, turn, HDC in every stitch across

Row 18: Chain 2, turn, HDC in 2 stitches, chain 2, skip 2 stitches, HDC in the next 2 stitches

Row 19: Chain 2, turn, HDC in 2 stitches, 2 HDC in the chain 2 space, HDC in the remaining 2 stitches

Row 20: Chain 2, turn, HDC in every stitch across, finish off and weave ends

Optional Boarder: Attach your yarn to one side where the towel and the topper meet, chain 1, SC into the spaces/holes around the outside of the topper, ending on the other side where the towel and topper meet, finish off and weave the end.

Sew on the button and you're done!

Easy Ranch Meatloaf Recipe

Welp, I’m not going to write some long spiel before you get to the actual recipe because that can be annoying so here’s an easy meatloaf recipe for a small family or double it for your larger one. Ingredients:  1 pound ground beef 1 egg 1 ranch dressing mix packet 1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs 3/4 cup ketchup 6 tbsp dark brown sugar  1 tsp yellow mustard  1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce   Preheat oven to 350*F Mix ground beef, egg, ranch mix and bread crumbs together in a bowl. Avoid handling too much.  Place in a prepared loaf pan and slightly press it in. Bake about 35 minutes.  While meatloaf is in the oven start making the topping. Add the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Once the 35 minutes is up pull out meatloaf spread topping on and place back in oven for 5-10 minutes. Check meatloaf to make sure it reaches 165*F. Let it rest for an additional 5 minutes and you’re ready to eat! Side note: there will be a lot of topping, you

Crochet Chunky Christmas Tree Skirt

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us, which is also my most favorite time of the year. I love the lights, the decorations and the whole spirit of the Christmas season. As i'm sure most of you do, in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving I was planning on how I wanted to decorate my tree. I knew I wanted to make my own tree skirt this year and I had an idea in my head of how I wanted it to look. But no matter how many times I searched I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, so I decided to try to come up with my own. I am definitely not an expert when it comes to creating/writing a crochet pattern but I was pretty impressed with how this tree skirt came out, so I decided to write it out the best I could so I could share it with all of you!
