Crochet Towel Holder Ring Tutorial



Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands. 

This crochet towel holder takes about 20 minutes or less to make depending on your speed. 

What I love about this crochet pattern is that it creates a very useful item using cotton yarn. We use these holder in our kitchen and reminds everyone where to keep the kitchen towel so it doesn't get lost.

Hope you crochet a towel holder, too! 

Why you should crochet a towel holder?


The ring for the towel is really stretchy and it just looks so nice hanging on the oven handle or on the fridge handle. Either way, I know everyone will enjoy getting their hands washed without running away with the towel, ha!

Use cotton yarn to make towel holders for your kitchen. Cotton is easy to crochet and very durable.
