One of the things I like the most with crochet is that it works up to be a nice thick fabric. Unfortunately it can be a little holey if it’s not worked tightly enough, so what would ideally be a nice pot holder is better served as a trivet. And really, what do you need more than 2 pot holders for – trivet though are what you really need a ton of – one for each dish you put out on the table actually. And since they are part of the dinner spread, why not fancy them up a bit? Plus, but using two colors instead of just one, this pattern works nicely for using up those last 10g of kitchen cotton.
