This plaid crochet towel topper pattern was actually a reader request from a while ago (I am sorry I’m slow!) I love being able to design requests because it means I am creating patterns that you guys are wanting, hopefully . I wanted to create a crochet towel topper that was a bit more modern and I think the shape of this one does just that.
I went with a more woodland/rustic look, but I think you can do more modern colors and a neutral towel to make it work for your kitchen! I might have to try that myself as I only decorate with plaid during the winter.
