Pot Holders

I have several pot holders but my absolute favorite are the ones that my daughter made me when she was little. They are made with a little weaving loom and cotton loops. It was an easy craft and kept her busy for hours. They seem to never wear out despite how bad they look. My mom still has a few that I made when I was a little girl. Thats 50 years ago!

I made some pot holders the other day but they are not nearly as cute as the weaved ones my daughter made. 
Using the thermal stitch, I crocheted two.

This stitch works up fast and creates a double layer thickness as you go. Instead of the regular single crochet stitch, you work through the back loop and the back loop of the previous row. Below, I highlighted the stitches you work through. I love how thick they are and fit nice in my hands for a good grip.

This was a great project to use up some of my scrap pieces of yarn. 

The pattern to these can be found at Sewrella.com.

  1. Now there's a coincidence! My sister in the Uk asked me yesterday during our video chat to make her a couple of pot holders as the ones I made her ages (as in about 20 years) ago are getting tatty. I am not even going to bother looking for my old pattern or a new one because you have provided me with one and I am going straight to that. Thanks for sharing! Keep well Amanda x

  2. I love the thought of having a daughters handiwork in your kitchen. We love the connection between you and "that girl." Sherry never got that daughter, but was thrilled when the GRAND DAUGHTER came along and became her girl.
    We always enjoy seeing your handiwork, SWEET.
    Stay warm and dry! Sherry jumped yesterday with our BIG clap of thunder. LOL

  3. I have a couple of those old pot holders made on the loom too in my collection. So pretty.
    Love the ones you've made too.

  4. My sisters and I loved making those potholders years ago and I taught my girls to make them as well- so fun you still have them ♥

  5. Those first ones reminded me of doing those when young. Great memories! All are so pretty y'all do such wonderful work!

  6. I remember those potholders from yesteryear. the ones you made are very cool.

  7. I remember we used to make potholders in art class when I was little! It was so much fun and easy! I even made a few outside of art class when I was in elementary school. I've crocheted a few potholders over the years as well. Love your potholders!
