No crocheter’s kitchen would be complete without one of these! I think the key to making this kitchen staple look current is keeping the towel pattern simple and coordinating the cotton yarn with the towel. I got to admit I love the chunky button but I found out after whipping up a couple, that you really don’t need a button hole. Most buttons will fit through your double crochet. Look for a tutorial from me soon!
