crocheted potholders

I love doing some real simple crochet,
which I can do while watching my favorite tv shows.
Crocheted potholders are easy and quick to make,

and I like the 'cosy cottage look' they create in my kitchen.

Here is how I made these easy potholders :

I used the following stitches:
Chain (ch)
Single crochet(click here)
Picot stitch(click here)

Start with a Chain of 52
Row 1: SC in 3rd ch fr hook, and in every ch afterwards. ( sc) Rows 2 - 40: Ch 2, turn. Work entire row in sc. (50 sc)

Add a Picot stitch to make an edging .

chain 20 in one of the corners to make a loop,
so that you can hang the potholder if you would like to do so.

Simplicity can sometimes be the hardest thing to achieve. I love the fact that your pot holders are functional, but also beautiful.

These would look great in our kitchen in France. I will be off to the shops next week to buy some yarn. Als ik nog technische vraagjes heb, dan hoor je dat. Keep at it, sis! Groet uit Penrhyndeudraeth
PS: ik zal zondag weer 'Hope Springs' kijken, dan kan nou zonder D! Leuke serie op BBC1.

Those are pretty and really well made! I'm a knitter and I find crochet a little baffling, so all those straight, crocheted lines are really impressive to me. :P

Love the potholders, they're so feminine and yet so practical!
Your little Jack Russell doggies is adorable!

Ik vind deze pannenlappen heel mooi.
Ik wil ze ook maken, maar bij je tutorial mis ik de afmetingen van de pannenlappen, de dikte van het katoen en de haaknaald.
