"This Squirrel Potholder is a beautiful and practical potholder designed in tapestry crochet. The advantage of tapestry crochet is that it creates a solid and compact fabric without any holes. So, besides being decorative, this potholder is also very functional in the kitchen. The free pattern only includes written instructions, while the PDF pattern also includes a chart and a step-by-step tutorial on how to change color in tapestry crochet. This potholder is part of my Farmhouse Collection of tapestry crochet potholders. "
