Crochet potholders

September 15, 2010 | Category: Crochet


To liven up the studio/atelier I want to make a whole bunch of crochet potholders in bright colors. I googled for patterns, and found one for a vintage rose potholder. As you can see in the upper right picture it’s a quite nice pattern. But I couldn’t manage to get it look like the picture….. as you can see in the upper left picture. It looks like if I created too much stitches, so it became a wavy version instead of a flat one… too bad.

I find it easier to read diagrams then written patterns in english, so I tried one from one of my two favorite crochet pattern books: Pretty color crochet and knit goods, it’s one of the potholders from page 8. With this one I had no problem to get it look like the picture :-)

I want to make many more potholders, do you have any good patterns to share?

    I love your site! I’m an American living in Madrid (which is lacking in the crafty sector), and visiting Amsterdam for a couple days in Oct. I have a whole day to myself while my husband is in meetings. Can you point me in the direction of craft/fabric stores or other creatively wonderful stores. I have 4 small kids and this is the first time I’m leaving them in a long time. I want to make the most of my “me” time. Thanks for your help.
