Knitting Machine Towel Topper
Updated: May 26, 2021
"No Matter How long the Winter, Spring is sure to follow."
I hold onto that thought all winter long while I make all the wintery things. As my kids destroy the house, we hunker down with cookies and screen time. Then Spring quickly arrives, and in all the craft groups, there are dozens of questions about "Quick Spring Makes." My Pinterest account has FILLED itself with all things Spring.
Those of us that use Addi Knitting Machines are reluctant to put them in storage, but beanie season is over.
That doesn't have to be the case! There are so many things you can create! Mug cosies, Mug coasters, gnomes, and these cute removable towel toppers. When paired with an adorable towel, this modern removable towel topper is a hit.
This pattern assumes you know the basics of The Addi Knitting machine and that you can do some light finishing (i.e. Weave in ends, sew seams, a tube closure, and single crochet)
- Needle - I use Clover Jumbo Tapestry Needles with Rounded point
- Size 6mm Crochet hook
- 2-2.8 inch Large Wood rings I found mine on Amazon
- Medium weight 4 yarn
I have used a variety of yarns I love this Cotton yarn by hobby lobby or Yarn Bee 100% lyocell by yarn bee, Lionbrands Truboo
The yarn can be adjusted to your preference and uses less than a skein - Waste yarn of choice
- Addi 22 Needle Express Knitting Machine
Instructions: - Set Machine to Tube Setting
- Cast On 5-10 rows of waste yarn
- Switch to the Main colour, 42 rows
- Cast off 5-10 rows
Tube Measures roughly 9.5 inches when stretched
Stretch tube gently, and crochet close with the method of choice (I use single crochet)
Remove waste yarn
Take the Wood Ring and feed a small section of the rectangle through
Adjust until it is flush with the wood ring
Sew along the edge
Note: For a more polished look sew only the top layer-this is the layer that is closest To the wood ring
Repeat on the other side
Thread Seam along the inner channel to tie off
Weave in Ends! My preference is to poke the yarn through the main portion of the work, cut, and then stretch work slightly until the yarn disappears
And we're done!
