This is a fun and festive pattern…maybe I should take up crocheting!
It is indeed time to start thinking about the holidays. The colors in this potholder certainly lift my spirits. Gotta love Christmas! Great pattern!
Definitely, Nancy! It’s a great way to pass the time on a plane.
Oh, I’m so happy your doing WW , I love to crochet!. How cool that it has a bit of cross stitch worked in. This is a small enough project and has practical use that I could justify taking time do whip one up thanks!
I stopped doing needlework because it caused Carpal Tunnel, but that looks like a small enough project that I could complete a few by Christmas. The bulk of the time would be spent looking for the old afghan hook. The cross stitch is a nice touch. Have to go back to the instructions to find out how it was done.
I love the festive colors! I have several crocheted potholders I use and while they aren’t as pretty as this one, they sure do hold up well!
What a fun looking project and a great gift idea. Thanks for posting it this early so we can all get started cranking them out for holiday gifts.
What a great Christmas gift idea! I love gifts that are made by hand – they seem so much more personal. Now to see if this is not too complicated for me!
Bright, beautiful and festive!! And…ha!…I even know right where my afghan hook is!!
My grandmother taught me to crochet. I only have one of her crocheted pot holders. I wish I knew what became of the others. It is truly a skill that has most often passed down through generations of women.
Thanks for all the lovely comments, everyone. I am so glad you like the potholders.
Susan, it was my grandmother’s sister who taught me. I don’t have any of her work – I so wish I did! But I am really grateful to at least have the knowledge she passed down to me.
It’s too pretty to get mashed potatoes, gravy, and spaghetti stains on it!
