Want to make them, too?
Here's the recipe!



* Chain 32 in color A

* Chain 3 (this is your first trc), trc in every next chain. Don't cut of yarn at the end of the row.




* Change to color B. Secure yarn to first stitch of the second row and chain 1. Sc in next 3 stitches. Now put your crochet needle in the next st of the first row. Pull up loop of yarn.





Sc in next four stitches and pull up loop. Repeat until end of the row. Cut of the yarn.

*  Chain 3 of color A (this is your first trc), trc in next three stitches, *skip one stitch (this stitch should be above the pulled up stitch), trc in next four stitches*, repeat * * until end of row.



* Change to color B. Sc in next four stitches. Pull up a loop in the 'eye' of the loop you made two rows ago. Repeat until end of row.




* Repeat pattern until you have fifteen rows of both colors.

    1. Liz, my boyfriend keeps telling me I need to crochet some potholders for us! I've been busy making things for everyone else. Maybe I'll have to give your directions a try. :)

  7. I adore your potholders. For whatever reason, I can't seem to maintain my coordination while crocheting... I just make one long chain. I wish I could make the potholders with your instructions, but I'll just admire yours! They are oh so lovely!!

  9. Thank you for this very nice tutorial. I will have to try this stitch sometime soon, as I from time to time like to make lots of dishcloth. They are always being requested by family and friends.

  10. Hi Liz, I had to look your pot holders again and I saw them at clairejustine's party and they are just so nice. I never saw this stitch before. Crocheting is so much fun and so many different stitches! Take care and happy crocheting.

  11. There is something about a homemade pot holder that out performs a store bought. My old one is the only one I use and I would be devastated if I lost it! I should give this a try. Thanks for sharing.
