Hi Everybody,

Here is a great last minute (or last few hours anyway) useful and handmade gift. I have been using a pair of these potholders in my kitchen since Thanksgiving. They work as well as any purchased potholder I've had. Plus, they are custom over sized and color coordinated with my kitchen.

The instructions are on my blog as well as here. This picture is before felting.




To Crochet:

Chain 28, work a half double crochet in the 2nd chain from hook and each chain across, chain 2 and turn. Continue in half double crochet until potholder is square and end with chain 12 (for loop) and slip stitch in beginning of chain. End off and work in ends.

To Knit:

Cast on 32 stitches. Work in garter stitch until potholder is square, bind off. With last loop remaining, chain 12 (for loop) and slip stitch in beginning of chain. End off and work in ends.

To Felt:

Wash in washing machine with hot water and a towel for more agitation. Dry flat and adjust shape to square.
