The towel tops are crocheted with white, ecru or soft ecru 100% cotton yarn coordinated with the towel background. I like the simplicity of the white or ecru yarn. A buttonhole is worked at the end of the towel top.
The button color is pulled from the colors in the towel design. Since some of these towels are quite colorful, I will sometimes use a white or ecru colored button to not distract from the overall towel. The buttons range in size from one to two inches in diameter.
The towels can be machine washed and dried. I have found that the 100% cotton yarn does not shrink when dried.
The possibilities are endless. Use your imagination as to where you could hang and utilize these towels.
