Dutch Skies Potholders


"These potholders are easily styled for each kitchen decor! As they are large and supple (about 19 cm or 7,5in diameter) there's surely enough surface to keep your hand from burning while baking your delicious food. I would recommend cotton for the potholders, as it is easily to wash and and heat-resistant. In this pattern I used Phildar Phil Coton 3, but any other cotton will do! I used 5 different colours (4 for the body and 1 for the edging) but again, this is completely up to your imagination! Enjoy, and make some potholders! And when youre done, make some more! Because you can never ever have to many potholders, right? ps. They make an amazing house-warming gift!"

These are very pretty potholders, but the biggest surprise is that the designer uses several different colors of yarn instead of a cake with continuous colors. She explains that the name comes from the skies over the Netherlands. Ill have to take her word for it. My grandfather was born in a small town in the province of Noord Brabant and Ive only ever seen photos.

I havent been a beginner crocheter in quite a while, but on occasion I still like to do projects that arent so challenging and it gives you an opportunity to revisit some of the basic stitches and to see how they have been updated. These are beautiful potholders / mandalas for the kitchen. The blue colorings blend so well together.

The "Dutch Skies" potholders are simply divine! The colors are so soothing and the design is very precise, if that makes any sense. There's no frou-frou here. It's very professional looking! This would rival anything you could find at a fancy boutique. And that would cost much more money, too.

I love these Dutch Skies Potholders! The pattern is Great with the picture tutorial. I like the idea of two put together for extra protection from the heat. I'll be making a lot of these to give as gifts and to keep my self. Thank you for this easy crochet pattern.

I really like the cluster edging on this coaster pattern. The rest of the pattern seems simple and workable enough, but the edging is going to be really fun! Can't wait to see the finished result when I get done working these up! One thing I really like within the pattern was the casual interjection of helpful notes. I would really have had difficulties with the part where the edging is supposed to be overlapping.
