This is a wonderfully quick project, but be aware that you will need to work up two identically sized squares to complete the potholder. Theyre double thick because they are literally two pieces sewn together. You will still want to use cotton on both sides so the potholder/trivet can be reversible. You could also work one color on one side, and a different one on the other.

I wanted to skip this but yeah, we need the potholder in the kitchen all the time. We want to protect our hands from the heat so yeah, why not get the pattern and start making these 30 Minute Potholder for your own use, and as gifts for family and friends and yes, for business.

At the end of all of my projects that call for a cotton yarn I always have some left over. Here is the perfect solution to that dilemma. The leftovers should allow for me to make at least a few of these. By making two and sewing them together I can have some rather creative designs in the end. Thanks for your free project.

This is not your ordinary crochet basket. The raised box stitch the designer used to create this does add a lot of texture. The directions state that she also doubled her bulky yarn. I am sure this will be a sturdy basket for what ever you elect to use it for

I really like this 30 Minute Potholder pattern that are made with cotton yarn and comes out nice and thick. I think the overcast stitch is the same as the whip stitch. Here is a video on how to do this https//www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9kGyZDWZcA It comes out really nice. I like the double thickness of this potholder. I see in the comments on the pattern page that someone said to make a single thickness square to use as a dish cloth. This is my plan, make a few potholders and a dish cloth and give as a gift. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

The designer's explanation on how to do the overcast stitch has me slightly confused. I am really a smart lady. But I don't get it. It would be helpful if she provided a link to a YouTube tutorial on how to do this. The potholders look nice, as good as they can look with the picture provided. I see many people are happy with them! If I used a white or very light color with a darker, saturated color, would these colors bleed when washed?

Here is a quick and easy pattern. I like items like this pot holder to work on in the evenings. I love to crochet, but some nights, I just need something super simple to work on. Everyone needs pot holders or trivets. So these make a very easy gift.

Whats even better than a one hour project? A project you can finish in half the time or can make two of in a one hour span. Make sure to use cotton yarn on all of your potholder projects though or you will wind up burning your fingers. Acrylic yarns are a big no no for anything in the kitchen. I speak from experience.

This is a good quick pattern. I have made a few as gifts and my children love them.

This pot holder pattern looks good and quick to make as the name suggests. One is supposed to make two and then join them together using overcasting stitch to make it thick. I do not know how the overcasting stitch is done. I wish the pattern included instructions for this stitch as well.
