With all this rain of late I took advantage of the inside time to make new potholders for my kitchen. It was past time to pitch the old ones. I made regular size ones for pot holders and a couple of the larger ones that I use to put hot pots on.
I have used the same pattern for years which is basically just single crochet for the pot holder itself a shell border of double crochet. Made of heavy cotton yarn they last for many years and are machine washable.
Yo can find the original pattern at http://www.myrecycledbags.com/2008/11/22/my-basic-potholder-pattern/
