omg i must be stupid..i cant do this i tried for 2 hours..i can get the first 2 rows but at the end of the 2nd i have to chain 1 and turn..from there it looks like hot mess..what is wrong with this pattern?

I made several of these. The last one I made, a dark green yarn, for some reason came out wrong and wasn't square. Trying to figure out what to do with it, I rolled it up and all of a sudden it hit me! I rolled it up into a tight tube, stitched the seam and both ends together and made it into a dog toy! My son had a lab/ german shorthair mix and it has become her favorite toy- she loves her pickle! The weave is tight enough that she has not torn it up at all even after several months of play.

I love this pattern. Have many many with other fav pattern, folded potholder done in the round and folds onto itself for a diagonal finish, but this will probably be my go-to favorite. A potholder can be pretty but should be functional if actually used. Works up beautifully in cotton yarn and weave is thick enough that it will or should not burn hands. Kudos to the designer!

I just finished doing this potholder with one addition. I wanted some color so I use a bit of of Red Heart Mexicana color and carried over and under the sc sts as I crocheted and end up with dashes of color in an otherwise plain potholder.

I love this pattern. I am almost finished with my first one and am planning to make several for gifts. I love to make practical things for gifts and often crocheted potholders aren't practical because fingers can poke through and get burned. That cannot happen with these and they are so quick and easy. I found this pattern on Ravelry.com too so I could add it to my projects. Thanks for sharing!

This is positively the BEST crocheted potholder! I've given many for gifts and kept some for me too! Everyone loves these. They really do keep your fingers "safe". Make mine a bit smaller by just chaining 21 and then add the chains for the "hanger". Like the smaller size.

I am looking for a potholder that looks like 5cicles joined together with the edges fold back , kinda like a cathredal windoe in quilting. was sure it was on this site??was white w/multi coloredd edging thanks sewtrish

I LOVE this pattern! Nice and thick and after you do just one the pattern is very easy to follow. I've made a few and in the process of making more for gifts.

Love this pattern! I've made a ton of them: the pattern is so easy to remember. And they do a great job of just being a potholder because they are double-thick.

I tried this last night and although my edges were not as perfect as yours I was pleased with the end results Thanks for the instructions

This potholder is indeed "The Best"! :-D I was skeptical at first about the density and whether or not it would be good enough to actually use under hot pots. My skepticism was unfounded because this potholder is quite dense, especially if you use Worsted weight yarn. It was also very easy to make and came out perfectly! It'll make perfect gifts for my chef friends. :-D Thanks so much for sharing this pattern...for FREE!!! Best, DeeAnna
