You’ll need:

2 balls of Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream in colors Soft Ecru, Sunshine, and Hot Blue (1 ball for each color, 2 colors for every towl);

Crochet hooks 5 and 5,5 mm;

Yarn needle.

Size: 19 inches long and 13 1/2 inches wide after it is buttoned up.

Stitches control: 16 sts in wave pattern = 5 ¼ inches.


Notes

Beginning ch 1 and ch 2 counts as a st. So starting from Row 3, your last st will be worked into the turning ch that will hardly be visible.

The color is changed every two rows. To join the new color, while you are working the very last st of the row, pull the new color through when you have two loops on your hook. You will then make the turning ch in the new color.

During color changes, the yarn is not fastened off but dropped to pick up later.

Instructions

Row 1: With the bright color yarn, ch 45, 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next 3 chs, *(1 dc in next 4 chs, 1 sc in next 4 chs), repeat from * to end, turn. ———44 sts

Row 2: Ch 1, 1 sc in next 3 sts, *( 1 dc in next 4 sts, 1 sc in next 4 sts), repeat from * to end, join the next color while you work your very last sc, turn. ——–44 sts

Row 3: Ch 2 ( I prefer ch 2 instead of ch 3 for dc turning chain), 1 dc in next 3 sts, *(1 sc in next 4 sts, 1 dc in next 4 sts), repeat from * to end, turn.——–44 sts

Row 4: Repeat Row 3 and change colors at end of row.

Now repeat Row 2 two times followed by Row 3 two times.Taking care to change colors every two rows, keep repeating this sequence until you have 17 stripes and your work measures close to 14 inches. I began and ended in a bright colored stripe. Do not fasten off.

Bottom Border

Row 1: Continue with your bright colored yarn and work a row of sc across the row ends. Work 2sc sts across the bright color and 3 sc sts across the cream, turn. ——-42 sc

Row 2: Ch 1, 1 sc in each st across, turn.Repeat Row 2 one more time and fasten off.

Assembly

Row 1: Sl st the bright color yarn to the top corner of your towel and work along the edges of the stripes, work 2sc sts across the bright color and 3 sc sts across the cream, turn.———-42 sc

Row 2: Ch 1( not counted as a st), sc2tog in the same st as ch 1 and next st, sc2tog across to end, turn. ———21 sc

Row 3: Ch 1 ( not counted as a st), 1 sc in same st, sc2tog, *(1sc in next, sc2tog), repeat from * to end, turn.——–14 sc

Rows 4-13 (total 10 rows): Ch 1 ( counted as a st), 1 sc in next st and each st across, turn. ——–14 sc

Row 14: Ch 1(counted as a st), sc2tog in next 2 sts, 1 sc in each st until 3 sts left, sc2tog in next 2 sts, 1 sc in turning ch, turn.———-12 sc

Repeat Row 14 two more times until you have 8 sts left.

Row 17: Ch 1 ( is counted as a st), 1 sc in next st and each st across, turn.——–8 sts

Repeat Row 17 until the gathered part measures 7 1/4 inches and work the buttonhole row below.

Buttonhole

Row: Ch 1 ( is counted as a st), 1 sc in next 2 sts, ch 2, skip 2, 1 sc in last 3 sts.——8 sts

Next Row: Ch 1 ( is counted as a st), 1 sc in next st and each st and ch across, turn.——–8 stsLast

Row: Ch 1 ( is counted as a st), 1 sc in next st and each st across, turn.——–8 sts

Repeat Last Row until your work measures 2 1/2 inches from buttonhole. Fasten off.

Cupcake

Row 1: With 5mm hook and brown color yarn, ch 11. 1 dc in 5th ch from hook and each ch across. Beginning ch-3 is also a st, turn.——-8 dc

Row 2: Ch 2 (not counted as a st), 1 fpdc in same st as ch 2, 1 dc in same st again ( you will find it behind the fpdc), *(bpdc in next, fpdc in next), repeat from * and end with a bpdc in turning ch-3, 1 dc on top of turning ch-3, turn. ——–10 sts

Row 3: Ch 2 ( counts as a st here), 1 dc in same st, *(1 fpdc in next st, bpdc in next), repeat from * a total of 4 times, 1 fpdc in last st, 1 dc into the same st. Join cream color when you work your last dc, turn.

Top of the Cupcake

Row 1: Ch 1 with cream color ( not a st), working into the front loops only, 1 sc in same st as ch 1, 1 sc in each st across. ——12 sc

Row 2: Ch 1 ( not a st), sc2tog in the same st as ch 1 and next st, 1 sc in next 8 sts, sc2tog in last 2 sts.——10 sts

Row 3: Repeat Row 2 to get 8 sts.

Row 4: Ch 1 ( not a st), sc2tog in the same st as ch 1 and next st, 1 sc, sc2tog, 1 sc, sc2tog.—-5 sts.

Last Row: Ch 1 ( not a st), sc2tog in the same st as ch 1 and next st, 1 sc, sc2tog, fasten off. —— 3sts

Frosting

The frosting is worked into the free loops left at the bottom of the cream part. There were 11 visible free loops.

Sl st st to the bottom corner of the cream part, 2 hdc in first free loop, *(sl st in next, 2 hdc in next), repeat until 1 loop left, 2 hdc in the last loop, sl st into the same loop, sl st to bottom corner of cream part. Fasten off. Weave in the tails on the back side of the cupcake and not under the frosting as it could unravel easily.

Cherry (Button)

With red yarn, ch 4, sl st to first ch to form a chain ring. Working over the yarn tail, 8 sc into the chain ring. Pull the tail to close the hole in the middle, sl st to first sc. Fasten off and weave in the tail for a bit and leave the rest of the tail for sewing the button on.

Finishing

Weave in all the ends on the towel.

Sew the cherry 3 1/2 inches away from the buttonhole.3. Sew the cupcake right under the buttonhole with a slight overlap. The cherry should sit on its top once buttoned up.
