7 posts in this topic

Hi all - this is my original kitchen potholder design - made these for my kitchen - very simple - really love it - hope you do too!






SO FAR, THIS HAS TURNED OUT TO BE MY FAVORITE POTHOLDER DESIGN FOR MY KITCHEN - simple, and pretty. I actually designed this several months ago - finally got around to posting it.



I am using red and white cotton for my kitchen - bought 2 14-oz cones - will buy more as i need them.


my own design - very simple cable




with size H hook, CH33


ROW1 - DC in 3rd CH from hook (counts as DC here and throughout); DC across, CH2, TURN


ROW2 - FP in 2nd DC; BP in next; FP in next; continue to end; DC in last; CH2, TURN


REPEAT till desired size


TRIM - with WHITE, SC 2 rows; in corners, do 2SC, CH, 2SC; THEN, with RED, DC one row; with 2DC, CH1, 2DC in corners; at end, don’t cut, instead, fasten off, then CH20, SL into beginning of CH20 - makes the hanging loop.

It should be made of 100% cotton or 100% wool, to provide heat protection and not succumb to the heat itself. Acrylic can melt under high-temp conditions.
