Cool Flames Potholder

 Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This potholder reminds me of the look of a gas stove burner that has been turned on. It is made in two pieces that are crocheted together around the outside. This makes it possible to insert a thick insulating circle of fabric if you want to. But since this potholder is thick by design, it is not necessary.

Materials Needed
1 ball each of 2 colors cotton worsted weight yarn White and green.
Size J/10 or 6mm aluminum crochet hook
Yarn needle

Yarn Thickness: 4mm
Gauge: 4dc=1"
Finished Size: 6½" diam
Skill Level: Beginner

Make second one the same but do not fasten off at the end. Instead, lay both pieces together wrong sides facing each other, and work 1 sc in each st around through both front and back at the same time. When you get back to where you started, ch5, and slst in same st as last stitch to form hanging loop. Weave ends into work.
