PAT­TERN NOTES

One ball of each color yarn is suf­fi­cient for 2 pot hold­ers. Pot hold­ers con­sist of 2 Squares

(Front and Back) worked in the round separately and then stitched to­gether. Front Square is worked in ta­pes­try dou­ble cro­chet us­ing con­trast­ing col­ors; Back Square is worked in reg­u­lar dou­ble cro­chet us­ing a sin­gle color. Weave in loose ends as work pro­gresses. Pot holder is worked in ta­pes­try cro­chet that adds col­or­work to projects. One strand of yarn is car­ried and wrapped in stitches of work­ing color. Then, col­ors are switched by fol­low­ing a pat­tern to make a spe­cific de­sign. There are no floats on the wrong side of work and a stronger fab­ric is pro­duced. When chang­ing color, carry and work over color not in use. Do not cut or fas­ten off un­less oth­er­wise stated. The Chart is read from right to left. It shows the color to work each stitch in for that row. You will re­peat each row of Chart 4 times per round. Chain-3 at begin­ning of rows or rounds counts as first dou­ble cro­chet un­less oth­er­wise stated. Join with slip stitch un­less oth­er­wise stated. One pot holder shown uses of­fwhite for first color and grey blue for 2nd color. Sec­ond pot holder shown uses grey blue for first color and off-white for 2nd color.
