Free Crochet Pattern Lisa’s Potholders

These are the potholders I use daily. They are made of nice thick cotton, so that I don’t burn my hands. I used the crunch stitch to crochet the potholders, this is a very easy stitch, which creates a nice texture. You will find the written pattern and crochet chart of these potholders below.

Supplies

  • crochet hook 4,5 mm and 5 mm
  • cotton yarn for crochet hook 5 mm. I used Epic from Yarn and Colors, color number 072.
  • a tapestry needle

Row 2

Chain 2 (count as 1 half double crochet), skip 1 stitch, 1 slip stitch in next stitch. *1 half double crochet in next stitch, 1 slip stitch in next stitch* repeat between * and * until the end of the row. (NB, the last slip stitch is worked in the turning chain of the previous row). Turn.

Row 29

After turning your work, chain 2. 1 half double crochet in the first stitch. 1 half double crochet in each of the next stitches until the end of the row. On the corner, you will work 3 half double crochet into 1 stitch.

Continue to the side. Work 1 half double crochet on the side of each row. Work 3 half double crochet into 1 stitch on the corner.

3rd side: 1 half double crochet in each stitch. When you have reached the next corner: work 2 half double crochet, chain 12, 1 slip stitch into the first chain and 1 half double crochet into the same stitch. This creates the loop of the potholder.

Continue with the last side. Work 1 half double crochet on the side of each row. Finish the row with 2 half double crochet into the corner and a slip stitch in the first stitch. Fasten off.
