This towel hanger is easy to crochet, using double crochet and v-stitches.
Ribbon can be woven through the v-stitches, if desired (optional). The next photo page shows the path for weaving the ribbon, shown on the open towel topper.
To attach the first row of crochet to the kitchen towel, I used the method of making embroidery chain stitches across the center of the towel. If you're not familiar with this method, you can see my how-to photos for it at How to use the Embroidery Chain Stitch as a method for joining crochet to a kitchen towel. I like this method because it means no sewing or hemming is needed to prepare the kitchen towel. It's done across the center of a whole towel, instead of cutting the towel in half.
