I am so disappointed the site doesn't come up, it says site not found, can you please help me. I really wanted to make these

The link isn't working for Nana's potholders (

Link not working for Your Nana's potholders

This is definitely an easy pattern. It's that one thing that's missing, cr 1 and turn after the crucial foundation row. Thank goodness I know better. THANK YOU for these wonderful patterns XOXO

how can you use worsted weight yarn making potholders...doesnt it melt or the heat go right through.. The patterns are nice though

My husband's mother used acrylic or polyester worsted weight yarn for the pot holders she made. I still have a few and they work fine. If I ever make any I am going to use worsted weight cotton yarn. I think it would be a better choice.

I would love to have these patterns, but they will not show the patterns . Please get them to come up. Thank you. Carole

I've already run into two problems. One each with the first two patterns. I can open the PDF fine. In pattern 2 she neglects to tell you that in round 6 you will be working in the back loops of round 4. Figured that out the hard way. In the first pattern, round 11 does not equal 62 stitches. It WOULD be ok except matching it up with the back side will be difficult if the number of stitches is wrong. Please FIX this!

I tested the links and was able to get to the pdf just fine. If it doesn't load the first time, try closing it and loading again. That's what worked for me. Also, make sure you have the most up-to-date version of Adobe. Hope this helps!

says the file is damaged. could not open

The PDF file for Nana's potholders is damaged. This is the second time this pattern has been sent with a damaged file. Could you please repair this file and post again. I would love to make these potholders. Thank you.


I just checked the PDF and I had access to the file. If you had trouble accessing previously, you might want to retry.

The PDF file is damaged, hence was unable to get the Nana's potholder directions. Would love to have the pattern. Thank you in anticipation.

unable to get the potholder directions. Site was broken and unable to be fixed. I would like these directions if there is anyway for you to get them to me. These are the Nana's Potholders and I am always looking for new ones as they wear out so fast for me.
