Sunshine-y Hanging Towel Crochet Pattern
Sunshine-y Hanging Towel, A Crochet Pattern
Introducing our latest design, the Sunshine-y Hanging Towel crochet pattern. I told Helen I would like to have more home decor patterns available, especially for summer. Most people don’t really want to be crocheting big cozy blankets or scarves during the summer temperatures. I started brainstorming some ideas and came up with this towel.
The use of the N stitch creates a diagonal, textured line across two stitches, which, in my eyes, made a neat little “ray of sunshine”. Helen’s towel, in the picture above, was done in a very pretty blue. I originally designed mine using yellow, which also contributed to the pattern’s name. Whatever you want to call it, it is a beautiful towel that would be perfect in any home.
Add a flashy button for flare or a cutesy button for giggles. You can keep it simple with a nice wooden button. Use multiple colors or just one. Completely up to you and your decor style.
This pattern is worked up super fast! I do recommend 100% cotton yarn such as Lily Sugar N Cream or Paintbox Cotton Aran. Both are worsted weight, #4 (Medium) yarns. Any 100% cotton medium weight yarn will do. Acrylic yarn in the kitchen is not a great idea, as it can melt over time with too much heat involved. I know a lot of people that use towels as pot holders or hot pads in a pinch!
Cotton yarn also does not pill like acrylic, unless it is specifically a low-pill acrylic yarn.
The pattern is worked from the bottom up, where you will eventually decrease to make the hanging tab. The only sewing required for this pattern is attaching the button!

- 100 yards of #4 worsted weight cotton. I used Lily Sugar N Cream
- 6.5mm hook
- Stitch markers to mark first and last stitches (optional)
- Tapestry needle
- 1.5″ button
Finished size – approx. 11” wide x 11.5” before decreasing. With hanging tab piece measures approx. 23” long. Of course, you can easily amend this to suit your needs by making it shorter or longer. Simply crochet either fewer rows of N stitch or more rows of N stitch.

You can get this pattern from all of our usual stores! Be sure to “like” or “favorite” the pattern on whichever store you get it from, this helps our patterns be found by others. One last request: if you get the pattern from Etsy, please leave a review of the pattern itself on our store, as Etsy sees this as a good thing, thus putting our shop higher up in the searches!
Don’t forget–we have a YouTube channel that we are just about to start revamping. Our goal is to add a lot more tutorials, quick patterns, yarn reviews, and use the YouTube platform to host giveaways! Since Sunflower is both USA and UK, you will receive yarns from BOTH countries! Some of which one country can buy but the other cannot– you definitely don’t wanna miss that!
