Fall Color Block Hot Pad / Pot Holder Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 

Fall Color Block Hot Pad / Pot Holder
 Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


The Fall Color Block Hot Pad / Pot Holder is a
 simple pattern to stitch up. And a very fun way to use
 up yarn from your stash and make something 
useful and pretty.

I designed mine using Fall Color Yarns I had 
on hand, but you can stitch yours up in any colors
 of Your choosing. I was going for a "retro" look.
I did each side a little different.
I really love how the colors and pattern turned out.


Make it to match your kitchen colors. 
Make a few and give them as gifts. We can never
 have too many pot holders.


There are pictures to shoe you how to change yarn colors
 for crisp look, and is also shown on the video.
