Today I’m sharing one of my favorite and most easiest D.Y.I crafts for those with little sewing and or crocheting skills. Decorative Pot Holders
So let’s begin!
What you’ll need…
2 Pot Holders of any theme that you may have in your kitchen (example) Roosters , Sunflowers , Coffee Cups etc:
1 crochet hook size H (5.0)
1 ball of yarn (to match your potholder)
1 crochet needle
(FYI) You can purchase all items at dollar tree
Using a Crochet hook ,
you want to take you pot holder and start to do a starting knot tie to one of the corners of the pot holder preforming a single crochet stitch around the pot holder until it meets the starting point. Repeat 3-4 times until you have created a pretty flap on your potholder when reaching each corner you’ll want to repeat your single crochet in the same whole or do a double crochet stitch , to tie up your work you’ll do a slip stitch knot tighten firmly. Slip tie knot your work at its end of your yarns end.
Using a crochet needle,
You’ll want to do the same steps as using a crochet needle start you stitch on one of the corners of the potholder and sow your way around enough times depending on size of potholder u til you have formed a flap , when reaching your first corner you’ll want to stitch in the same whole twice to make a full corner edge to tie up your finished work you’ll do a slip tie know cut the excess yarn on your end of your work.
Get creative and decorate your entire kitchen decor items such as kitchen towels to match your potholders.
