Here's another free potholder pattern to add to the list! Crochet Flower Potholder Pattern.... http// == otholder-pattern/

The link to the crochet Stained Glass Flower Potdholder doesn't work. Any suggestions? Can't access it through the search function either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Can't find pattern for stained glass flower potholder , doesn't go to correct page when I click on it.would really like to see it. Love the coffee cup hotpad

Does anyone know of an Owl potholder pattern? Been looking all over the interweb and can't find one I like. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just finished the Starburst Hotpad, I had a really hard time putting all 5 petals together or at least the final piece of yarn sewn in just a certain way to make the petals. I never mastered this step but like I do alot I put my own spin on it and accomplished the same look. I think the original instructions would have made it something I would make more or, but since I had to take more time working it together I will move on to another pattern and try to conquer it. I'm self taught and still teaching myself, but there are so many videos or how to do things it makes the process of learning easier. Thank you.

This starburst hotpad is really pretty and it's easy to do. Well worth the time and easy to carry with you to have handy when you have a few minutes to wait for an appointment.

@msdonnaerlarson 2292663: I have just tested the links and they seem to be working properly. You may notice that the links at the top of the page link to categories of patterns further down on the page. You will need to click on the links for specific patterns further down on the page in order to open the pattern pages. Hope this helps! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochet

How do you get the pattern??? I have clicked the links nothing is happening. I would love to make these pop holders. Thanks for your time in this matter. D
