4th of July Potholders

Crochet a fabulous pair of 4th of July potholders to celebrate the holiday. This free crochet pattern comes with four variations of the potholder. Make one or make them all.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Size: One Size
Set of 4, each about 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 in. (21.5 x 21.5 cm)

Materials:

  • 830-148 Cotton-Ease: Turquoise (A) (one ball)
  • 830-113 Cotton-Ease: Cherry (B) (one ball)
  • 830-099 Cotton-Ease: Almond (C) (one ball)
  • Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size G-hook
    Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)

GAUGE:

18 sc + 17 rows = 4 in. (10 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

NOTES:

1. Yarn quantities listed are sufficient to make all four potholders.
2. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Do not fasten off old color. Leave old color on WS of work until next needed.
3. Use a separate ball of yarn for each section of color.
4. Wind A into 2 separate balls, and wind B and C each into 3 separate balls before beginning.
5. Potholders can be made by following the written instructions or reading the Charts.
6. When working from chart, read RS rows from right to left, and WS rows from left to right.

They may be classified as potholders, but I think they would make an excellent 'patchwork quilt' afghan! Not to mention they are little and you can haul them with you to work on. How cute!!
