Click here to download the PDF version.

Materials Needed:
3 oz Peaches & Creme Cotton Worsted weight yarn. Of desired color.
Size H/8 or 5mm aluminum crochet hook
Yarn Needle

Gauge: 7dc=2"
Yarn Thickness: =3mm
Finished Size: W8" xL8½"
Skill Level: Beginner

NOTE: You will always be working your dc between stitches so if I say to work a dc in each of the next 3 sps, this is what it means. The whole potholder is worked this way.

See the stitch (Front Post Double Crochet) to see how to do it.

Instructions
RND 1:Ch4, join w/slst to first ch to form ring. Ch3, 13 dc in ring. Join w/slst to top of ch3.

RND 2: Ch3. fpd in first st, then dc in the same st. *Fpd in next st and dc in same st. Rep from * around. What you will have is a fpd and a dc in each st around. This increases the number of stitches from 14 to 28.

RND 3: Slst into the first sp bet the ch3 of rnd 2 and the first fpd. Ch3. *Fpd around fpd. Dc in sp bet fpd and next dc. Dc in next sp bet dc and next fpd. Rep from * around ending with a dc bet the last fpd and dc. Join w/slst to top of ch3.

RND 4: Slst into the first sp. Ch3. Dc in next sp. Fpd in next fpd. *Dc in each of the next 3 sps. Fpd in next fpd. Rep from * around. You will end with a dc in each of the last 1 sp. Join w/slst to top of ch3.

RND 5: Slst into the first sp. Ch3. Dc in next sp. Fpd in next fpd. *Dc in each of the next 4 sps. Fpd in next fpd. Rep from * around. You will end with a dc in each of the last 2 sps. Join w/slst to top of ch3.

RND 6: Slst into the first sp. Ch3. Dc in next sp. Fpd in next fpd. *Dc in each of the next 5 sps. Fpd in next fpd. Rep from * around. You will end with a dc in each of the last 3 sps. Join w/slst to top of ch3.

RND 7: Slst into the first sp. Ch3. Dc in next sp. Fpd in next fpd. *Dc in each of the next 6 sps. Fpd in next fpd. Rep from * around. You will end with a dc in each of the last 4 sps. Join w/slst to top of ch3.

RND 8: Slst into the first sp. Ch3. Dc in next sp. Fpd in next fpd. *Dc in each of the next 7 sps. Fpd in next fpd. Rep from * around. You will end with a dc in each of the last 5 sps. Join w/slst to top of ch3. Do not fasten off.

Perimeter:
Fold holder in half and line up the fpds so they are even. And so that the hook is at your right and the fold is right on a fpd. Now while working on the two inside lps of the stitches, work a sc in each st around to close.

Hanging Loop: When you reach the other side, ch 4 and then slst int any stitch on the holder itself to form a lp. Then turn and work 12 sc in this ch4 lp. Fasten off and weave ends into work, securing the hanging lp to the holder. I wove the ends into the holder itself. This adds strength to the hanging lp.
