Potholders

[advertisement: unpaid links]

I do not like crocheted potholders. Most of them look extremely old-fashioned to me and I surely did not plan to crochet any. Then a dear friend of mine asked me for handmade potholders.

As I did not want to decline his request, I started to look for inspiration on Ravelry. I found some projects that actually used a tiny version of the Wool Eater Blanket as potholders. With quite a lot of leftovers of Tahki’s Cotton Classic in my stash, I decided to give it a try. And here they are, still some sort of retro potholders, but not overly ugly. I could even think of using a black based version in my own kitchen.

The pattern is easy and comes with a lot of photos. I appreciate this a lot as I do not crochet very often. It is written in UK terms, so think of it when you have to work the dtr’s (of course, I did not). The yarn is wonderful to work with, slightly glossy, yet still cottony. Well done, Tahki! So maybe, these were not my last crocheted potholders. There still remain some Cotton Classic leftovers.
