    The first step is to get a dish towel and cut it in half right down the middle. You need to use a towel with the same pattern on either side. This will make it possible for you to crochet two identical towels which will have toppers from a single dish towel. You can now set aside one-half of the towel which can be used for making a second topper.

    Now for hiding the fraying edge, it is recommended that you fold the cut edge of the towel twice. The folds should be around 1/2 inches in width. For holding the folds in place, you should use safety pins.

    In this step, the crochet stitches need to be secured and for this it is recommended that you use the steel crochet hook, making a row of single crochet stitches. It is recommended that you use a cotton yarn as this is easily washable like a towel. You now have to pull back the yarn, moving the crochet hook through the towel layers. Remember you should pull on the hook through the loops to make the single crochet stitches. Continue this until you have enough crochet stitches.

    The topper should be made with double crochet stitches but do remember to switch to a USG hook first.

    Now it is time to decrease the stitches and for that you should double crochet two stitches together at the beginning and ending stitches. You should do this on either side to decrease the stitches. Ultimately you should have only four stitches left in your rows which will form the handle of the towel.

    Now double crochet across every single row to get the desired size of the topper's handle. After completing the last row it is time for you to finish it off. The yarn should now be attached to the bottom of the towel topper.
