Stripey Crochet Potholders

crochet potholders

I've been working on these little potholders for some time now.  I don't usually crochet much in the summer, but I figured I might as well do something while I was watching the Olympics. 

 So, here you have it... some colorful stripey potholders.

If you are wondering about the pattern.... I didn't use one really.  I  just single crocheted rows of 28 until I felt like changing colors.  I made one stripey side and one plain side joined together by single crochet all around.  Maybe one day I'll write an official pattern..... we'll see :)

  1. Very nice. I'm on a crochet kick, also. Last year when I made potholders, I did one sc and one dc and repeated this pattern for a textured look and feel. I seldom use a pattern, I just design as I go. Love the colors you chose, are they you kitchen colors?

  3. These are really cute. I love the colors...reminds me of the ocean. I'd love to see what the plain side looks like, too. I'm impressed you were productive while watching the Olympics!

  4. Great idea. It's a good way to use up yarn too.

  5. Kim's right. This looks like a great way to use up some yarn! I need more potholders, so I think I'll give this a try. Thanks for posting!
