crochet:: winterberry surprise

July 28, 2012

SURPRISE!

The vintage potholder I was coveting waaaay back here has been decoded!

Then, you may recall that a lovely neighbor gave me these apple potholders, and I thought WooHoo, I have a sample to practice with.

Many thanks to Patty for sending this lovely surprise my way.  I have still, *ahem* a whole year later, not taken the time to work on recreating this pattern.  I know, I’m a terrible person and a procrastinator.  But thankfully, Patty is not.

So let’s just get right down to business, instead of me running my mouth.

Here’s the pic she emailed to me of her Winterberry Potholder.

Now check this out, through her generosity I am able to share this free pattern.

    Thank you so much for the pineapple/strawberry potholder pattern. You would think it would be easy to find on the web but you are lead to so many dead ends. Thanks again!

      Of course you can :) Thanks for asking, but anything you create with your own hands ~ you can sell. If anyone asks, please let them know where you got the free pattern. I always love to meet new friends here at YarnChick40. Best to you and happy hooking!

    HI~the potholders are beautiful, and I was wondering if they are also functional when hooked with cotton yarn. They seem to have a lacy look. Thanks for some lovely work.

      Surprisingly, they work pretty well in cotton because they are double thick. I will admit that I use mine more for on the table trivets or lid lifters because I use silicone mitts for stuff straight out of the oven… I am sort of a klutz.
