Crochet Kitchen Towels

My favorite kitchen towels are the ones with a topper that keeps my towel handy on my oven handle!  We have a crochet kitchen towel topper that has a wonderful vintage look to it.

Other Items to Crochet for the kitchen

This page is full of unique items that you can crochet for your kitchen to make it a special and welcoming place.

One unique item is the Dish Soap Bottle Dress. You can crochet this for the kitchen to disguise the not-so-attractive bottle of dish soap sitting on your kitchen sink or counter. It really is so cute!

One of my favorite gifts that I received for my kitchen was the Mug Cozy! It makes my hot tea just so warm and inviting on a winter day.  The crochet mug cozy we have here is from Yarnspirations.
