Row 1. Start with a ch 10, hdc  in the 3rd ch from the hook, turn -8 hdc

Rows 2-15. *Ch 1, hdc in each stitch across, Turn -8 hdc *Repeat this Row 14 times

Row 16. Ch 1, hdc2tog decrease, hdc in the next 4 stitches across, hdc2tog decrease, Turn -6 hdc

Sew the Button on the center of the bottom of Row 1. Then you can fold it and fasten the button unto the other side.


Sl st with your yarn around the ring, sc around the ring 50 times, sl st. Fasten off. Depending on your size of ring, you may only need to single crochet around less or more. Medium to large ring is best.

Take the button top and wrap it around the ring, and button it together. Then you can place your towel inside the ring. And secure the button top around your something in your  home, like a stove handle or towel handle in your bathroom.

    I have made your towel holder. I searched for a tutorial on it, but could not find one. I have apparently done something wrong. I am confused as to how you can attach and remove the towel holder from the oven door handle, as the pattern does not seem to allow for a button hole. Please advise ASAP as this is a gift to be given soon. Thanks.

    I love this but I have 2 questions: What is the size of the ring (available at a hobby store?) and where can i find a tutorial or directions for the half-double to decrease stitch?

    My Towel Holder Changes

    I made mine all one piece, used (3″ metal ring)

    Sc. around the ring first, sl. st. to first sc., ch1 & sc. in same st., sc. & in next 7sc., ch1 Turn (8sc.)

    This is the start of your Row 1.

    Did Rows 2-6 same as yours.

    In Row 17= I made Button Hole (didn’t decrease)

    I sc. in first sc., ch 4 (skip next 4sc.), sc. in last sc. Turn (2sc. & 4ch.)

    “Border” Row 18= Ch1 sc. in first sc., 4sc. in ch, sc. in last sc. (6 sc.) This made a button hole. “DO NOT TURN”

    Sc down the side & in each sc. of ring & up other side, sl. st. to first sc. of row 18. Fasten Off.

    Try this it gives it a whole new look.

    NOTE: 1- You can change all sc.’s to hdc. st.

    2- Change the color at row 18 to make border around whole piece.
