Crochet - Ornamental Pot Holders

Crochet - Ornamental Pot Holders

We've just returned from our lovely week in Cornwall I'm in the process of sifting through all the photos - over 1000 of them! I didn't spend as much time as I thought I would crocheting, our days were busy and by the time we returned home in the evening we were all pretty shattered...

...So here's the crochet score for the week:

Granny squares = 4 (dismal)

New WIPs started and not finished (obv) = 2 (Why?)

Just Because I Wanted Too Ornamental Pot Holders = 2 (hurrah)

I've been wanting to crochet some pot holders for a while now and I found this gorgeous pattern from Crochet with Raymond which features the African flower motif, I'm sure lots of you have tried this one but as I've only been crocheting for a year these gorgeous patterns are still new discoveries to me. I love how they turned out, I want to do more but I absolutely must finish some of my WIPs; they are starting to haunt me!



And here they are hanging about the kitchen!




Pretty, pretty, pretty.

Bye for now. Em xx

    Yes Em, pretty, pretty, pretty :) I love the blue one! It kind remind me of pottery that we have in Portugal! Beautiful! :)

      Thank you - I know that the darker colour was a Patons mercerised DK cotton (I think maybe nectarine) the lighter colour was from a cheap cotton multi-pack I bought I Aldi a while ago now. Sorry that't not much help is it! Em xx
