#Crochet-Crochet!! Towel Holder


I found this cute crochet pattern for a towel holder on Pinterest.  Originally posted by:
Simply Crochet.  I loved it.  Made with a ponytail holder to make the towel ring--ANY towel will work with this holder!  And you can use up scraps of thread from other projects, since it hardly takes any thread!  It was so simple to make, I decided to make them along with a matching dish cloth for the women in my family for Mother's Day.   Now I just need to go and purchase some towels and I have a quick, easy gift!

PATTERN
Join with sl st around ponytail holder, ch 1, sc as many times needed around the ponytail holder, join with sl st in first sc. 


Row 1: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc here and throughout), hdc in next 9 sts, turn.
Continue this pattern, working 10 sts across for 12 rows or desired length. 

 
Button Hole Row 1: ch 2, hdc in next 3 sts, ch 2, sk next 2 sts, hdc in next 4 sts, turn. 


Button Hole Row 2: ch 1, sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in ch 2 sp, sc in next 4 sts, turn. 


Finishing Row: ch 1, sc across.


Border: ch 1, sc around the border, sl st into beginning ch 1, fasten off. Sew on your button and you're done! 









I'll post the dish cloth pattern later in the week.

    2. I used a G. But you could go up or down a size to adjust your gauge to your liking.

    1. It's not permanently attached to the holder. You pull the towel through the open whole at the bottom. :)

    1. Wrap it around your oven or dishwasher handle. Or you can hang it on the handle of a drawer.

    1. If I understand your question correctly, you repeat 10 HDC (2 ch and 9 HDC) across the row until you reach the desired length. Hope this helps.

  12. Great idea!!! What do you mean by "thread" ~ did you use cotton yarn or acrylic yarn? Thanks

    1. Cotton yarn, yes. One of the brands I used was "Loops and Threads" and that is probably why I called it thread. But it is cotton yarn--medium weight, number "4".

  14. I don't understand in row 1, you say to do 9 HDC, but into what stitches? I only chained 2? Please help :)

    1. the ch 2 counts as your first HDC. Then you are going to do "9" more HDC in the single crochets from the foundation row. This is row one of the long flap that works straight up from the circle.
