pot holder crochet pattern

I made some new crochet pot holders for my kitchen that match those pretty crochet edged tea towels that I shared with you recently. As you can see I stayed with my red and white color scheme too. I love the simple and classic design of these pot holders. And best of all … did you know you can even use them in between your nonstick pots and pans to protect them from getting scratched up?!

Crochet Pot Holders Patterns

Here’s what you need:

    I could seriously use these around my house- I wanna say I’m still using pot holders and hot pads we got for our wedding! :P I wish I never had to sleep so I could do more crochet projects on top of everything else! :)
