I currently have in my possession 38 balls of Lily Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn. You know how it goes…(or maybe you don’t)….you buy a few colors here and there, you do nothing with them….you buy a few more….again, do nothing…buy buy more more…and before you know it, you’ve got enough cotton yarn to crochet a circus tent.
I purchased a book by Annie’s Attic called “Big Book of Dischloths, Pot Holders & Scrubbies“. It’s a great book with lots of patterns to choose from, and this one is called “Circle Pot Holder”.
I liked it so well, that I just kept going,
and now I have a collection:
This potholder is made in two parts, front and back, and then they’re crocheted together. Here’s the back:
The pattern says the diameter is 6 1/2″, but mine worked out to be 6″. I love that they are thick enough to protect your hands, but they fold easily around a hot handle. Since you can make one in under two hours, it’s a great “watch-a-movie, eat-popcorn, use-up-stash” project.
Note to self: Do NOT* buy another ball of this yarn.
*I mean it.
