I have scoured many a home store and kitchen store to find just a normal square potholder. They are not easy to find. Nowadays, they have rectangular ones with rubber underneath and hand mitts. Plus, the ones at the stores are expensive. I decided with my new-found talent in crochet to make some for the house. I once again browsed youtube until I found out the basics on how to make one. Here is my own version.
Here’s the basics:
Chain 30, sc in the 2nd hole from the hook and continue to do a sc in each stitch. When you get to the end, do not turn your work, just sc in a circle around the bottom. Continue to sc until the pot holder forms a sort of pocket. Once the potholder is the right size, fold it over and sew the seam with a long tail from your work.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures along the way. I will update the next time I make some and post more helpful instructions.
