I made my own version of this using a strong ponytail elastic instead of a plastic ring. It seems to "grip" the towel better and still looks great on the stove handle!

I am so happy to find this pattern again. I know my Senior ladies have been asking about it, but I thought they were talking about the Towel Holder that has a half towel already attached. This version would be much more useful in my own kitchen as I use the old chefs trick of tucking a cloth into my waistband. This gives me a place to store my clean ones.

No where can I find the 3" plastic rings! I ended up with 2 1/2" shower curtain rings.. Wish there was a video on this.. Had trouble crocheting the ring and I have no clue how to do the hdc2tog stitch.. I did my own way and it looks just ok.. So that one I will keep.. My email is pneub1@embarqmail.com if anyone sees this and can help in anyway, would appreciate it very much.. Put crocheting help in the subject line please.. Thank you, Patty

I did this - it was easy! I cut the towel in half, gathered it and stitched it to the top. My husband kept knocking the towel on the floor. This would make a good small gift for someone.

It was easy to make. And I like the idea. But the towel doesn't stay put. It's always falling off the hanger. I have it on the oven door. Yes, it's handy, but I don't like it on the floor. I'm seriously thinking of stitching one end of the towel to the top of the hanger to keep it there

thank you barbara
