How To Crochet Tutti Frutti Pot Holders

From the blogger: "Crocheting in the summer is entirely possible! Making cute projects like these Citrus potholders are perfect projects to make. Boring potholders begone! With these bang-on-trend tutti-frutti beauties, you’ll never look at a plain old potholder in the same way again. Using several types of yarn, the pattern works for all three styles and is easily adaptable. With special thanks and in special memory of Marinke, the crocheter who created this pattern for Heart Handmade UK. Marinke passed away four years ago and I love that her crochet projects live on, as does she. "

  • Darning needle for sewing in the ends
  • Felt
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Start with your white yarn. Begin by making a magic circle, and secure with a stitch.

  2. Chain 2, then work 11dc into the ring, for a total of 12 stitches. Cut the yarn, pull through the loop on your hook, and close the magic circle by pulling on the bottom yarn tail. Close the circle by threading your yarn tail, and inserting the needle from front to back through the first dc you made, skipping the chain 2. Insert your needle through the back loop of the last dc you made. Sew in both ends.

  3. Grab your orange yarn, and start with a slip knot on your hook. Start by making a dc into your white circle. This way of starting a round is called a standing stitch. We're going to start all of our new colours like this from now on. Work 2dc into every stitch around. Your stitch total is now 24. Join with a slip stitch in the first dc.

  4. Chain 3, then work 2dc into the next stitch. Work *1dc, inc* around (inc means increase; work 2 stitches into one stitch). Join with a slip stitch to the top chain of your beginning chain 3. Your stitch total is now 36.

  5. Chain 3, then work 1dc into the next stitch, and 2dc into the stitch after that. Work *2dc, inc* around. Join with a slip stitch. Your stitch total is now 48.

  6. Chain 3, then work 2dc into the next two stitches, and 2dc into the stitch after that. Work *3dc, inc* around. Your stitch total is now 60. Cut the yarn, and join the round like you did with the white circle. Sew in the ends.

  7. Join your white yarn like you did with the orange yarn. Work *4dc, inc* around. Join with a slip stitch. Your stitch total is now 72. Cut the yarn, and join the round like you did with the white circle. Sew in the ends.

  8. Join your orange yarn like you did before. Work *5dc, inc* around. Join with a slip stitch. Your stitch total is now 84. Cut the yarn, and join the round like you did with the white circle. Sew in the ends.

  9. We’re now going to crochet the wedges by using surface slip stitches. Grab your white yarn, and pull it to the front from the centre of your piece. Slip stitch your way up to the second white round. Cut the yarn and sew in the ends. Repeat this 5 more times.

Sewing on the Back and Finishing Off Your Crochet Project

  1. We’re going to sew on a piece of felt, to give our pot holder a finished look, and to make it more rugged. Cut out a piece of felt that is the same size as your crochet piece.

  2. Put your crochet piece on top of your felt. Grab some sewing thread and your sewing needle, and attach the felt to the crochet piece using a blanket stitch.

  3. Sew in the ends.
