I have always preferred the look of knitted items to crochet, but lately I have been loving a couple of crochet projects. I am still working on my Granny Square blanket for baby #2, but I have also been making some of these.
I found this darling potholder pattern at Flax and Twine blog. It is FREE and can be found HERE. I watched a couple online videos to figure out how to do a single crochet, and then I went to town. It is a rather brainless pattern and makes for perfect unwinding at the end of the day.
I tested it in the kitchen with some homemade bread, granola, and another rhubarb crunch. It works wonderfully! It is a little larger due to my larger size hook, size 9/I, so on the second one I made, I only chained 28 stitches.
Yarn used is Jeannee.
