Potholder


Well, I found a great stitch to use as a potholder.  Its called the rib stitch in crochet.  I just love it!  It has depth to it which makes it perfect for a potholder.  Heres the pattern:

you will need:  worsted weight 100% cotton yarn, size F crochet hook.

Stitches used:  ch,dc, fpdc,bpdc, hdc.

1 skein makes 2 potholders.

Make a slip knot and put it on your hook. Chain in multiples of 2.  I chained 20. DC in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch accross.

Row 2:** * FPDC around 2nd dc, BPDC around next DC * repeat from *to* across, hdc in last dc or ch 2 made, ch 2 turn** repeat from ** to **  for entire piece.

If there is a fpdc put a fpdc and if there is a bpdc put a bpdc. Follow what the pattern does.

  1. Thank you so much for the very informative video. I also was very intimidated by the fpdc and the bpdc. I tried reading the instructions but I do better watching someone do it. Thanks again. Deena

    • You are so welcome Deena. I hope you try making the potholders. They work up pretty quick and are easy to do once you know what you’re doing. Let me know how it works out for you. 🙂
