Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green with Terri's Yarns and Crafts in Sevierville, Tennessee. I'm going to show you how to crochet a simple border on a cotton towel. For this project you are going to need worsted white cotton yarn, of course a towel, scissors, a ruler, some sort of pen. This happens to be an erasable fabric marking pen. You can also use a pencil if you want, a small steel crochet hook or if you don't have one of those you can use an awe or something to poke the holes through the towel and a G crochet hook. The first thing that you want to do is trim any border or hem off of the end of the towel and then lay your towel out and mark along the edge with your pencil or your fabric pen and use your ruler to evenly space markings where you want to place your holes. Take the small hook and poke it through where your hole is, pull a loop of the yarn again, poke the hook through your marking, pull up a loop and complete the single crochet and get your last crochet just as close to the edge as you can get and there's your first row. The first row is just single crochet along the border. The second row is a simple double crochet skip one, chain one that makes a mesh like on the second row. Then the third row you work shells and the second and third row are done with the larger hook. So this shell pattern is six double crochets in the same space and single crochet in the next space then it makes a simple pretty border that will decorate any towel. You can find directions for this pattern on Terri's Yarns and Crafts.
