Potholders are one of my favorite things to crochet. They are fast, colorful, and as simple or complicated as you want. I finished both of these potholders in a day and had so much fun playing with colors.
This first pattern uses attic 24's hexagon how to, but I used HelloYarn's modifications to make the potholder shape. The yarn is sugar n cream solids with hook size US G. The hexagon pattern is super simple but the assembling together became a little complicated as more of them were joined. I am sure it was just me making these harder than need be as usual.
The second potholder is also a free pattern that you can find here. This one was such a joy to crochet! I loved doing the petal outlines in white, it was great fun watching the circle become a flower. It is also made out of sugar n cream cotton with a size F hook.
I have plans to make one more potholder with these colors to have a complete set. I am thinking a simple granny mandala with a shell border will fit the bill perfectly!
they are so beautiful!!!ReplyDelete

I love the shape of the second one. And the colours- gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Impressive! Colours stand out and not sure if I would use them I don't think I would like them to get grubby. Could certainly use them for decoration in my kitchen.ReplyDelete
IRL, I just came across a vintage one like your first one. and wonder how to make them, guess I'd better take look.ReplyDelete
It warms my heart, that homecrafts are cool, again.

These might just be the prettiest potholders I've ever seen! Hope you won't mind me linking up at Tangled Happy this week. Thanks for sharing! I'm feeling inspired. :)ReplyDelete
WOW! What a pretty color! I think I won't use as a pot holder. I will use it as a decoration!ReplyDelete
