(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Snappy!

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • chain; slip stitch; single crochet; a simple embroidery stitch of your choice, such as chain stitch, back stitch, or cross stitch

Pattern Description:

Snappy! is a jaunty pair of crocheted potholders, worked square and on the bias. The set offers lots of possibilities for customization; each stripe uses only a few yards of yarn. The coordinating pair makes a great hostess present!

Snappy! makes a great beginner project because the embroidery can be as plain or fancy as you want, and the end result looks much more complicated than it really is.

Any worsted weight cotton will work, although the size of the finished potholder may vary. Exact gauge is not important as long as you create a dense fabric -- no burned fingers!

The potholders are double layered for extra insulation.

Pattern includes instructions for working embroidered chain stitch with a crochet hook.
