"Make it easy to hang your kitchen towels with these simple Knit Towel Toppers. The pattern includes two style options. You can either make a longer tab with a buttonhole that’s intended to hang over a bar or handle – OR – there’s a shorter top version that works better if you want to use the buttonhole to just stick over a drawer knob. It's a great way to use up your yarn scraps too!"

I have been making these for ever. I started out making them for myself, then for family and friends. Now I get called upon to make them to sell at fund raisers for charities. Since they are so easy to make, I never mind doing just that. They are always a crowd pleaser!

Great stash buster. Every time we have some of these at estate sales, they get snatched up right away. Make your own. These are so easy. With today's great selection of dishtowels and yarn colors, you can match any kitchen decor. There is even a tutorial if you get stumped. Works up quick.

This is a great pattern to use up all those scraps and to brighten up your kitchen or a gift for another persons kitchen. Using dollar store towels makes is super inexpensive. I like her suggestion on not cutting the towel which saves time. Very nice project.

My mom and grandma used to have these all of the time, but I never thought about all of my yarn scraps. This is a perfect little project to whip it!

I've been looking for a pattern just like this!! THANK YOU!!
