When I created this blog, I should have added another C. Campfires, Casting & Crochet. Crochet is my "thing". It's what I do to express my creativity, to unwind and relax, and to make pretty, useful things. A few days ago, I created a towel holder for our camper kitchen. No more fallen towels when we're driving down the road!


Super Saver Worsted Weight Yarn. 3.5mm Hook. Button. Needle.
* Use Scrap Yarn and Any Hook. 

Begin: SL ST into a covered hair elastic. CH 1. SC around to cover elastic. SL ST into top of first SC. CH 1.

Top Tab: SC in next 10 sts. CH 1. Turn.*Repeat until desired length or 8-12 rows.

Button Hole: SC into next 4 sts. CH 2. Skip 2 st. SC into next 4 sts. CH 1. Turn.
Finish Row: SC into 10 sts. Fasten off and weave in ends or continue with border.
Border: (optional) CH 1. SC around, including elastic. SL ST into top of first SC. Weave in ends.
Button: Position button near elastic section. Sew to attach. Weave in ends. 
To Use: Fold tab over kitchen bar. Push button through button hole. Place towel through elastic circle.

I'm probably going to make a couple more of these towel holders since they're super quick and simple to whip up. We've already "road tested" this holder, and not once did the towel slip through and fall to the floor during travels.

Until next time...


  1. So cute. And functional too. It's a win-win.

    1. Thanks, Sarah! And very quick to create! The towel has NEVER fallen onto the floor in all our miles so far.
