I am looking for a potholder pattern that uses a washcloth or kitchen design cloth that has the crotchet edging. The washcloth is not the typical fold. I have only seen one, but it was easy to wash and was decorative.

i like the patterns but the one i cannot locate is the one which looks like a shell stitch which is shown up above. i looked through all the patterns for hot pads. anyone know where this one is ?

It's the (Not Your) Mum's Hotpad If you click at the picture the pattern will be open.
