Potholder Towel Pattern

Potholder with Crocheted Towel

Here is a project where you use a store-bought potholder and add a crocheted towel to it. I’ve seen other similar projects that you sew a towel to the potholder to create the combo but not crocheted.


The hard part is crocheting the base row across the middle of the potholder. You want to fold the potholder in half and mark the center with a pencil mark. Then you crochet across the marked line in single crochet (SC) stitches evenly. I used a steel #9 crochet hook to poke the holes and pull the yarn through the holes. This process is hard and takes patience. You need to push and wiggle through the potholder to make the holes and then draw the yarn up to complete the SC stitch.

Once you have the base row complete, crocheting the remainder of kitchen towel is super easy.

Here are more photos of the potholder with both sides showing.

Black Crocheted Hat with Silver Stripe

Here are some hat projects that I have crocheted lately for the local Veteran’s outreach program. Hats and other needed items are receive by the local Veteran’s staff and are given to Veterans at different events or outreach offices.

First is a basic black cap with two rows of silver yarn for a stripe. This project uses the free pattern found here.

Next is a striped hat that features a ribbed band. This hat uses the free crocheted ribbed hat pattern.

Below is a thick crocheted hat that uses front post double crochet (FP DC) stitching. The free crochet pattern is found here.
