patchwork star potholder
Who knew you could do patchwork with crochet!?
After finding the loveliest Leisure Arts Leaflet at the thrift store called NOSTALGIC POT HOLDERS TO CROCHET by Terry Kimbrough (copyright 1991) I noticed a pieced potholder that seemed to be put together very much like fabric patchwork.
Three words? I. love. this.!
The way each patch flows out magically like a piece of fabric...
...and yarning over to make a granny hexie for the back.
And I just SMILED when joining the front to the back and seeing the windows of color peeking out.
The icing on this cake was poking out the popcorn stitch in the center of this potholder just like a cute belly button peeking out.
I used up all of my leftover cotton yarn to make this potholder, but now I can see this in so many cute color combinations.
Of course, I'll need to run to the store for more yarn...
