Crocheted a Hanger For a Hand Towel

I have a hand towel in my kitchen that has been crocheted so that it attaches to my drawer. Now, I've gotten a nice new cotton kitchen towel that I would like to crochet into and make a similar item out of. I can't figure out how to get the crochet hook into the towel to make the hanger? I thought of something like a hole punch but they are too big. All advice is welcome!

My grandmother used to make those dishtowels. She threaded a big needle with the crochet thread or yarn and made blanket stitches across the end you want to crochet. That gives you something to put the hook into. (01/06/2005)

Cut the dish towel in half. Use the #10 steel hook to evenly space holes across the top of the dish towel approximately 1 inch from the edge that was cut.

Hope this helps they look wonderful and last for years! (01/06/2005)

Just take a fork and poke it into the towel. I do it all the time and it works just fine.

Enjoy those towels! (01/06/2005)

You could us an awl or anything sharp and pointed. A carving fork would be good and you wouldn't even have to measure equal distances between holes, use the distance between the tines. (01/06/2005)

I do this all the time without poking holes. Depending on the quality of the towel, you can just shove the crochet hook right through it without too much force. (03/12/2005)
