(C)2013 Crochet Today!
My crochet pattern, Pie Potholders, were available in the Feb/Mar 2014 issue of Crochet Today! I suggest you search ebay or Etsy for back issues.
These are made in size 10 thread with a size 7 (1.65mm) steel hook. You’ll need to get Aunt Lydia’s size 10 thread in the following colors to make the set:
#493 French Rose
#310 Copper Mist
#494 Victory Red
#484 Myrtle Green
#131 Fudge Brown
I love how these turned out! Theresa, the editor, sent me a few pictures for inspiration. I liked various parts of the pictures, and came up with some of my own ideas. What do you think of the finished potholders? Which one do you like best?
These aren’t very thick potholders, except of course where the berries are. If you want to make them thicker, you could add a layer of felt or quilt batting between the layers of the potholder.
I was so excited just yesterday to see a picture of the cover and saw that there is a small picture of the “strawberry pie” at the bottom of the cover! I’ve never had a project on the cover before! Too bad it’s not the cover photo, but still, I’m excited!
