Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Single Crochet
  • Double Crochet
  • Half double crochet
  • Tunisian Simple Stitch

Pattern Description:

I fell in love with Tunisian Crochet earlier this year. When I needed to update the kitchen in my new home, I decided to crochet all of the accessories.

This pattern includes a tutorial on how to do the Tunisian Simple Stitch. I included links to online tutorials I have written in case you find it confusing. instructions for casting on and casting/binding off are included. If you really get lost, email me and I will gladly help you out.

Green and white go well almost year 'round. You can use this during St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, Spring and Summer. Change up the yarn color for Valentine's Day and other holidays.

The potholder doubles as a hot pad. Kitchen Cotton is very tough and can handle the heat with ease. I have never burned or scorched one yet.

Cotton makes this pot holder washable and easy to care for. It is a large pot holder, approximately 8" by 9". It will protect your hands well.

If you cannot find this particular yarn, any worsted weight, 100 percent cotton yarn will do. A skein of yarn will make 2 pot holders. A 16 ounce cone will make about 5.

I love dressing up my kitchen. This pot holder stitches up quickly. I purchase Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton by the cone when it is on sale.
