|Valentine’s Day themed potholders copyright
Dawn Conklin/My Daily Crochet
I decided to experiment a little bit over the past year to see what may work and not work for various
ideas. I decided to make some new holiday themed (at least in color on this one) items. Here are my Valentine’s Day potholders.
I was tempted to do a heart shaped, but I struggled with deciding on the best way to do it. Hearts are not always as easy to do, tho I may have to try the filet crochet for them like the placements that I am almost done with. These are potholders made out of cotton yarn. Mostly Lily Sugar ‘N Cream, but I think I also used the brand from our local Walmart which is Peaches and Creme. I personally think they are both close to the same when working with them.
I didn’t write down this pattern as it was a simple 25 scs in a row for 26 rows. I made a front and back for each potholder to ensure that it would be thick enough to not burn my hands. I find that cotton is the best for potholders as it can handle the temperature better then acrylic yarn. I just wanted to share them to show ideas for people for Valentine’s Day potholders. If you have any questions I will gladly answer them for you.
Next post I will share the towel that I made but didn’t turn out the way I had hoped, but we learn from mistakes…right?
