The little potholder that I purchased at the flea market (see Mother’s Day – Our official “kick-off”) was so sweet that I had to crochet one just like it. After many failed attempts to copy this little gem (it looked easy!), I gave up and started my search. Although the pattern I found was not exactly the same, it qualified as “close enough”.
Ravelry patterns led me to the Crazy Cloth Dishcloth. I used #10 crochet cotton, made two identical potholders and then crocheted them together for extra thickness. It measures approximately 5″ x 5″.
Note: These potholders work surprisingly well! However… since I’ve yet to test them on a steaming tray of lasagne or a 25-lb. turkey, I’m not quite ready to ditch the Ove Glove.
