These potholders were crocheted using two different ombre Peaches & Creme yarns. Both are worsted weight cotton yarns. The colors used are as follows:
- Earth tone (variegated)
- Shaded brown (variegated)
As you can see, you get quite a bit of color out of just those two yarns.
These are thick, double-layered potholders that are both functional and attractive. The potholders are crocheted in afghan stitch (also known as Tunisian simple stitch) and then completed using a simple edging of single crochet stitch.
The color changes in the dishcloth are reasonably simple; you alternate back and forth between the two yarn colors. The result looks complex, but it isn't difficult work.
