Holiday Potholders Free Pattern

Christmas is my favourite time of the year for so many reasons.  One of them is decorating our home to make it as festive as possible!  This year, I made these fun reindeer and snowflake potholders for our holiday tablescape!!  I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK yarn  since I love their colour palette.   I’ve yet to find a brand of yarn with such a wide range of stylish modern tones.


I have written out and posted the free pattern for these potholders below on this page.

When reading the pattern grid, note that the odd numbered rows are the right side, and the even numbered rows are the wrong side.

  • It’s a good idea to print the grid and highlight the rows as they are completed.
  • Right side rows are to be read right to left
  • Wrong side rows are to be read left to right
  • All rows are worked with both strands of yarn to keep the gauge and tension consistent. It is best to crochet tightly to avoid the second color being seen through the stitches.
  • When working a right side row, hold secondary yarn color to the back of your work.
  • When working a wrong side row, hold secondary yarn color to the front of your work.
  • Crochet over the second yarn (yarn not in use) when working each SC to avoid floats and make potholders reversible.

Pattern:




With Main Color, CH 41 (40 plus 1 for turning chain).  Work all stitches in single crochet (plus one turning chain at the end of each row).  Follow color charts below starting at bottom right for row 1.  Each cell represents one SC and each row represents one row of crochet.

 




Border and Finishing:

Work around the border of the potholder evenly in single crochet.  Make sure that you do 3 SC in each corner of the border.   When you have completed one round, join to first sc with a slip stitch.  Fasten off and weave in the ends!
