Kitchen Pot Holder-Great Beginner Crochet Pattern
If you can complete a chain stitch and a single crochet stitch, you can make this easy beginner kitchen pot holder. This a simple DIY project, but it is so useful. Anyone would just love to have one as a gift. In fact, they would make great Christmas gifts, bridal shower gifts, no home gift, or even a birthday gift for that person, like me, that just loves hand-made items.
Two Strands of Yarn
The pot holder is made quickly by using two strands of yarn held together. I chose colors that I thought would look well together. Then I thought that the pot holder needed to have a bit more finished look and wanted to use a beautiful yarn that would help it pop. This peacock yarn is just so beautiful.

Peacock Yarn Caron (less than a skein)

CH 1, SC in each ST across to the end. Turn.
Rows 3 – 13
Repeat row 2.
Adding the border
Switch to the Peacock yarn and add the border.
Holding two strands of the yarn together, start in a corner and completing three SC in the corner ST. Continue to SC in each ST until the corner ST. Complete three SC in the corner ST and SC in each ST until the next corner ST. in the last corner, three SC in the corner ST and SC in each ST. When you reach end of the row, all four sides of the pot holder should have the Peacock yarn in each ST with 3 stitches in each corner.
Making the Loop
When you reach the end of the last row, CH 5 and SL ST into the first ST that was made with the Peacock yarn for the border of the pot holder.
Using the yarn needle, sew in the ends of the yarn weaving back and forth in stitches. Snip off the excess yarn.

Acrylic yarn is not good for pot holders. it will melt. You need to use 100% cotton.

I have used the Acrylic with no problems; however, I know that some folks have had issues. I do mention that the cotton is another option. Thanks for pointing this out again for our readers. Safety is number one. Take care.
