Turn your yarn scraps into something pretty and useful!

This pattern describes in US terminology, how to crochet a lovely set of mandala style potholders, as shown in pictures, made using sport weight cotton yarn and crochet hook D (3 mm).

Each potholder will be made in 2 separate panels, so they will be thick enough to absorb heat. They will be very sturdy as well. Front and back panels are joined with a single crochet edging all around, finished with a hanging loop.


Schachenmayr / SMC Catania was used to create the pictured potholders. Finished size will be approx. 7.1” (18 cm) in diameter, including the edges.
You can use all of your scraps of yarn for these lovely potholders, for a colorful and cheery look, just make sure though, that the yarn scraps are all of the same weight and material.


Skill level: intermediate crochet.
Approx. Gauge: gauge is not important for this pattern, just make sure to maintain your tension throughout the project.
