A beautiful crocheted snowflake applique adorns the front of this two-tone potholder. Both free crochet patterns are available through this web site; you can use them together as shown, or you can use either pattern separately if you prefer.
The design is created using a super-simple charted pattern. If you've never crocheted with mid-row color changes before, this is a great starter pattern for learning that technique; check out our tapestry crochet tutorial for detailed instructions.
Then, once the body of the potholder has been crocheted, you add slip stitch details in surface crochet, and you stitch the snowflake onto the potholder in the center.
