For the first time in my life, I have long hair. I’ve been growing it out for about five years now, and it finally hangs to the small of my back. That’s a lot of hair, and piling it on top of my head after showering using a regular towel just doesn’t cut it, I need a hair towel.
So I raided my cotton yarn stash and created a free crochet pattern using just a couple of dollars worth of yarn. Sa-weet!!!
The most absorbent yarn is cotton, so you’ll definitely want to make sure you have some. For optimal absorbency, choose a yarn with little to no dye at all. But I like red. 😉
Materials for Hair Towel:
Instead of including the (long) pattern all on this webpage, I’m putting it into this PDF document. Head over and open it, save it, print it and make it. Next…
Lay the two pieces together and line them up. You’ll sew the seams around (as designated in the photo below) and then go around the opening with a sc border. Attach a small piece of elastic (as designated in the photo below) so that you can tuck the end of the towel through to secure it after twisting your hair inside.
Voila! Now you can bend over to put on your socks or pick up something off the floor without losing that towel precariously set atop your head!
These work up pretty quickly, within a couple of hours, and would be a great gift for a teenager or one going off to college or as a Christmas for that niece you’re never quite sure what to give.
