Start baking and stop burning your hands with potholders like these.


This PDF crochet pattern describes in US terminology how to crochet a set of Sweet Bakery potholders as shown in pictures, made using sport weight cotton yarn and crochet hook size D (3 mm).
The potholders are double layered, making them sturdy and thick enough to hold all hot dishes.
Schachenmayr/SMC Catania was used to create the pictured potholders.
Finished size will be approx. 6” x 6” (15 x 15 cm) including the edges.

These handy potholders are made in 2 separate panels. The front panel is worked up with 1 granny square at the bottom tip, and mitered stripes towards the top. The back panel is also worked in mitered stripes, but in a solid color. Front and back panel are joined together with a single crochet edging all around, finished with a hanging loop.
