2 skeins Lily Cotton, Sugar’ n Cream, 2 oz each (56.7 g each)
1 size F crochet hook
Chain 30 plus one and turn work. Double crochet in each of the 30 stitches, chain one and turn work. Continue to create rows of 30 stitches for 30 rows (creates 15 pattern ridges on each side of work). Bind off stitches. Cut yarn and work end into stitching.
Make two squares.
Join the squares by slip stitching them together along three sides. Finish the open end by slip stitching along the edge of each potholder side.
You may create a hanging loop after you bind off the stitches by attaching a chain of 20 stitches, turning the chain and working a double crochet stitch in each of the 19 stitches, join the loop to the potholder with a slip stitch and secure the loop ends.
This crocheted potholder is great for a beginner. It would make a great addition to any kitchen. It is thick enough to use as a hot pad to protect a tabletop or counter.
Lily offers many colors of yarn in the Sugar’ n Cream line.
