Tea towels, those handy kitchen companions, often find their home hanging on oven handlebars. A seemingly simple act that involves a tea towel holder or topper is more than just a practical solution; it’s a charming piece of kitchen history. The idea of using handmade towel holders dates back generations, adding a touch of rustic elegance to the heart of the home.
I vividly remember stumbling upon a video on a popular social media platform featuring someone hanging tea towels using a crocheted towel holder with wooden rings. The simple yet ingenious solution amazed me. If you’re like me, those constantly falling tea towels from the handlebar can be pretty frustrating. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and try making these towel holders.
A quick Google search revealed a myriad of similar crochet towel holders, but I was drawn to knitted cable braids for their elegant and sophisticated appearance. I decided to dive in headfirst and experiment with crafting my towel holder. To my delight, the result was both functional and visually appealing.
