Question Pattern for Towel Toppers

I would like a pattern for knitting or simple crocheting for making the tops that are attached to kitchen hand towels. Then you can hang them up with the button tab. Popular here "downunder" but I can't locate a simple pattern. Thanks

hanging towel idea

I bought a nice hanger from a neighbor of mine in her yard sale.
She crochets the topper part, adds a large ring (wide mouth jar ring) or you could use a macrame ring. She crochets over the ring with yarn. It has the button arrangement at top to hang over a oven door or cabinet handle.
I like it best as you can hang any towel. Most of the crocheted hanger towels are just too thin and get wet too fast.
