If you listened to the podcast, you know that I made some potholders for David while I was in Texas.
Here's the pattern!
ch - chain stitch
dc - double crochet
fpdc - front-post double crochet
sl st - slip stitch
Note: stitches defined at Crochet Pattern Central
Yarn: 1 ball Sugar & Creme 4-ply cotton
Hook: US H/8
Here we go!
Row 1: Ch 32, dc into 2nd ch from hook, dc across, turn.
Row 2: Ch 2, fpdc into 2nd dc, *dc, fpdc, repeat from * across, dc into last ch from previous row, turn.
Row 3: Ch 2, *dc, fpdc, repeat from * across, dc into last chain from previous row, turn.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the potholder is just about square.
Finishing Row and Loop: Ch 2, dc across, dc into last chain from previous row, ch 20, sl st into last dc, pull end of yarn through loop.
Weave in ends.
For those of you who like charts, this is a slightly expanded (because it looks better this way) look at the stitch pattern.
