Great job on this! I really like the colour combo. I'm thinking about trying this pattern too, but I don't use potholders so it would seem like a waste of effort.
Did you see the post of the person who turned this into a purse?? I think I might try this too.
I've never tried this technique before either. Was it difficult?
I have dreams of completing every pattern in the book too. Tee hee.
I saw that purse and thought someone beat me to it! I was thinking about doing that as well. Except mine would be a man purse, I was think of a messenger bag or something.
As for the technique, it's so simple you hold the yarn that you are currently not using crochet over it on the wrong side. I haven't perfected it yet, but I am making a few more of these for friends that I'll have it looking really good in a couple more tries.
