Playing with Yarn

I wanted a change.  So a bit of crocheting seemed to be in order.  

One of the members of our mini quilt group was working on a towel topper last Tuesday.  I thought this would be a great idea to keep the tea towels off my kitchen floor.  She was knitting hers.  After asking her a ton of questions I decided to crochet mine.  So this morning I looked through my linen closet and picked out a little towel to practice on.  I did not use a pattern, but just did my own thing, based on the answers I had received at our quilt group.  I think it turned out very well.


I will probably do a few more of these, with a bit of tweaking to make them the way I want them.  I think a bigger hook would make it softer and more flowing, because it is difficult to see the image on the towel when it is hanging up.  Here is a shot of the little bear on my towel.  This is only half of the towel, so I can make another one just like it.

Holy wow. This is so cute and lovely. What a great job you did of adapting it to fit you.

Lovely topper, I am too lazy to crochet them, just use a square of cotton fabric folded on the diagonal. Yours are much nicer.

I did some of those several years ago and they have all worn out awhile back. I should do some more of them. Yours is very cute!
