I need to get rid of stuff!! i have soap kits, bath salt kits, lip balm kits, plain canvas tote bags, fabric paints, and other stuff i'm trying to clean out. It'd be cool to swap for yarn, but i'll give it away FREE! PM me if you're interested!!!

Thank you  Cheesy  I had never done fingers before, but just followed the instructions on the pattern.  I got the pattern off of ravelry, so if you're on their too it's the pattern called Sue's Crocheted Mittens/Fingerless Gloves.  It was a good first time for fingers pattern, lol.  Grin

I just did 5 rnds of double crochet increases and then single crocheted 2 together(circles) together for my pot holders. I have found that the rnd ones go alot faster for me then squares.

My pattern was from my mom, who got it from my aunt who got it from Huh??.  I think my aunt made it up but I'm not sure.  Anyway w/a G hook chain 81 and join.  Then single crochet around until it reaches about 4 1/2 to 4 3/4".  Then you sew the bottom together.  Lay the potholder on the table and fold the open end so that the middle pushes out to form points.  Sew together and chain a loop on one end for hanging.  In my very bad picture the first square is the holder before sewing.  The second picture is after you sew the bottom.  Pull out on the fabric where the arrows are.  The bottom is what the finished pot holder will look like.  The lines are where you sewed it closed. 

Basically after you sew the bottom closed when you fold over the top the ends should touch.  If they don't keep crocheting till they do.  I hope this isn't too confusing  Tongue

Edited:  I just did a quick search on ravelry and found this pattern: http://www.baycrochet.com/patorig.htm.  It's almost exactly the same, just a lot fewer stitches so would be smaller.
