Hello everyone and welcome to Sunday Crochet! It’s hard to believe that August is already upon us and Christmas is about 4 ½ months away. That tells me that I better get busy and start crocheting those gifts before it’s too late.
My trouble is crocheting a scarf or blanket in the middle of summer when it’s 85 degrees outside. However, we (Helen, Sheila, and I) came up with a great gift idea that is quick, easy, and very useful… a Potholder.
You can’t have to many of these hanging around the kitchen. We found a great pattern from Yarnspirations website that is simple
enough for those of you just starting to crochet. Lily Sugar n’ Cream is the suggested yarn to use, which comes in a large variety of solid and variegated colors.
Crocheting one square variegated and the other solid, Helen made this terrific green potholder, with a half double around for the edging. With all the different colors Lily Sugar n Cream has to offer, the color combinations are endless. I love this idea… WTG Helen!
Yarnspirations called Everyday Set as a guide, because Sheila is one of those special crocheters… she looks a design and crochets the item to her specifications. Talented!
A talent I look forward to accomplishing someday. Sure… I may change a stitch in a pattern but I have never tried to wing it. If I did my crochet project would look like a big ball of single crochet stitches.. lol
