Craft: Venetian Leaf Towel Topper
I like the towel toppers that have a concealed crochet chain so you can hang a towel over the chain without having to cut the towel in half and deal with the cut edge. I also like that type of topper because when the towel gets dirty but the topper isn''t, you can change the towel, and the topper lasts longer because it is washed less often.

I made my leaves with Red Heart ''Frosty Green Fleck'', but the topper can be made all in one color or in fall colors like red and green for Christmas or orange and brown for Thanksgiving.

Materials

  • Size G crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn - green
  • Worsted weight yarn - white
  • Button, approximately 3/4 inches diameter
  • Sewing thread and needle
  • Scissors
