Holidays, cooking and baking seem to go hand-in-hand, don't they? So I think it's a great idea to turn our attention to some of the pretty holiday-themed kitchen accents we can crochet.
You could take any design on the potholder pattern list and crochet it in Christmas colors, but some of the designs on the list are already "Christmas-y" as is. For example, this striped potholder resembles a candy cane if you crochet it in red and white yarn. (If not, it's just an ordinary striped potholder, as you can see here.)
This red, white and green striped potholder is also festive and Christmas-y.
I haven't got around to crocheting this Christmas tree design in cotton yarn to use as a potholder yet, but it's on my to-do list to try. Please feel free to use that idea if you'd like. If you do, keep in mind that the design as originally written was meant to be used as an afghan square, and was crocheted in acrylic. You don't want to use acrylic or other synthetics for making potholders, as I explain in my article about which yarn to use for crocheting potholders.
Happy stitching, and happy holidays!
