Main Body of Potholder

Foundation Chain: Ch 43.

Round 1: 3sc in 2nd ch from hook (place sm into first sc worked), sc in next 40 ch, 3sc into last ch. Rotate work so you're working into the underside of the Ch. Sc into next 40 ch. You should have 86 sc in Total.

Rest of Main Body: Working in a spiral, repeat Round 2 until your project height is half the width. (For Example: if project is 24cm, work until pouch is 12cm high).

Shape the Potholder

Step 1: Fold the top edges inwards to create a diagonal seam, place a stitch marker at one end of the new diagonal seam, and sc in the back loops to stitch marker.

Step 2: ch15 to create hanging loop, sc into back loops of next stitch.

Step 3: Place sm at other end of diagonal seam, and sc in the back loops to stitch marker.

Step 4: Begin the seam to close the potholder by picking up a back loop from each side of the seam and closing them with a slip stitch.

Step 5: Follow this slip stitching method all the way along the seam, alternating which side you pick up the back loop from up first.

Step 6: Work 15 sc into hanging loop. Finish with a ss into main part of potholder, break yarn and sew in ends.

      Hi! If you use then it will mirror my right handed video. Unfortunately even though I'm left handed myself, I crochet right handed and can't crochet left handed.

      Thanks 🙂 Laurelin

  • Elaine says:

    At the end of the seam, should all of the sc have been worked into or will there be one that wasn’t? So at the end will I see three sc or just two? I’m confused and wondering if I started it correctly. How it ends would help me to understand.

    • SnufflebeanYarn says:

      I think from memory I had two that weren't worked into, but I used these to create the hanging loop and closed them together with a slip stitch when I finished the loop.

  • Kathy H says:

    Does the beginning and end of every round have three SC in the stitch?

    • SnufflebeanYarn says:

      No just the first round

  • Susan L. Klein says:

    Help! I'm trying to make this potholder and have 9 rows done = 18 rows. I've tried to round the corners and now it looks like a boat. Is there any way of saving it? I've never been able to read a pattern so I'm trying to go by the video.

    • SnufflebeanYarn says:

      Hi Susan, I think I helped you via facebook? Are you sorted now?

      • Shelby says:

        I am having this issue as well - are you able to post the solution?

        • SnufflebeanYarn says:

          I can't see which issue you're referring to? You just need to make sure you follow the pattern exactly as written, there is only one set of increases in the first round and then you work no more increases.
