Granny Stitch Potholder

Posted on May 4, 2016

I love the granny stitch and it makes such a pretty pattern. It is also a wonderful pattern for using up different scraps of yarn in a project such as this potholder pattern. The front panel is worked in the granny square type stitch and then the backing is done in single crochet stitching. The result is a pretty granny stitch potholder with a thick protective backing.
