Vertical Stripes Potholder & Cloth

Vertical Stripes Crocheted Set

A friend on Crochetville shared this great looking crochet pattern featuring vertical stripes. The pattern was designed for a dishcloth. The free crochet pattern can be found here.

I crocheted the dishcloth and decided to add a potholder to complete the kitchen set using the same pattern with an H hook. For the back of the potholder, I just crocheted straight single crochet (SC) stitches without the stripes. I put the two pieces together to create a nice double-thick potholder. I used a recycled plastic bottle ring for the hanging loop.

Here is a closeup of the finished potholder which is about an 7 inch square.
