I have a Potholder

Albeit a very large potholder, a potholder just the same.

I finished the last hexagon attachment on Sunday afternoon. I feel pretty good about my result. It is definitely larger than I anticipated, but not useless. It will be better for setting things on, rather then taking them out of the oven.

I did attempt to do some shrinking which got me down to 11 inches in diameter from 12 inches. Also, the washing revealed virtually every mistake I made, haha.

I have started another one, but this time I'm gonna leave out the third ring of the hexagon and see how much smaller that makes my potholder. I'd also like to try one with DK weight yarn. So the crochet adventures continue, but.....

... I am EXTREMELY excited about this beauty. I'm gonna go check my gauge for Manu, what project is getting you excited these days?


  1. I think it looks really cute, Emmy! It will be perfect for a hot pad. The bright colors are so cheerful.

  2. I like it! Great to set hot items on. How many weeks until Christmas?
