Crochet Kitchen Potholders

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Hello friends!  Have you been creating any crochet projects lately?

I crocheted these cute potholders recently, and I'd love to share them with you. :)


When summer and hot weather arrives I love crocheting potholders.  For me they are fun to make and I love working with cotton yarn as it's just too hot for me to work with wool.  I also like making quick little projects that can be brought along anywhere to work on.  These are perfect to use as potholders, a coaster, or even a dishcloth.

I made the red potholder for my mom, to match her kitchen colors.  The yellow potholder I made for my sister.  These make great gifts and you can add pretty soap or liquid dish soap to them.



Details to Make Your own Potholder:

The yarn I used is Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton.  
The red yarn is - Hot Pepper 
The yellow yarn is - Citrus
Crochet Hook - US size H

This potholder consists of the single and double crochet stitches throughout each row.

To make your own Potholder, the pattern can be found HERE.

**  You can use whatever yarn colors and cotton yarn to make these crochet potholders!

To see the spring colored dishcloths that I made, you can click HERE, and to see them in fall colors, you can click HERE.

I hope this may have inspired you to crochet a potholder for your kitchen! 


Thanks everyone for stopping by!  I hope you all enjoy the end of the week and weekend. :)

Jess and I will see you all back here on Monday for our Cooking & Crafting with J & J Link Up!

Thanks everyone and enjoy!

  2. I love your little pot holders. I make dish clothes and cup cozys with this same stitch. Its one of my favorites. Im not sure of what its called but I think its called the "Slanted Shell" stitch. I could be wrong.

  3. Those would make very nice gifts indeed. Perfect for summertime weather. I haven't crocheted much lately. I've been trying to knit and I'm a little slow at it. :)

  20. Cute potholders, Julie. They look nice and thick. I too prefer to knit or crochet with cotton or lighter lace type of yarns in the hot weather. I recently finished a dish towel and dishcloth set in cotton yarn.

  21. From someone who only knows how to knit dishcloths (just about!), I can attest to the comfort of cotton in the summer. I have knit a few scarves with wool and acrylic and I wouldn't want to do that in this 90-degree heat! I know you are filling up your Christmas bag full of knitted and crocheted stuff, Julie -- you're amazing!!

  22. Well, what a good idea, I was looking at them and thinking I need to try these soon! It is so nice to have a quick project that can be completed and not a huge blanket, as we would roast LOL
    Hugs, Roxy... I did Pin It !
