This is one of those potholders where you go around and around a chain, and then flatten it out so the stripes are diagonal.
I wanted to put on a fancy border but forgot to bring my book to church with me, where I work on some of my projects. I just used single crochet for three rows, and then put on a shell border, so this one is none too fancy or special. Functional, however!
Although not fancy, it is a bit prettier than the ones we have sold before at the bazaar, so I am hoping that by the time it is here I will have loaded them down with little lovelies. I keep hearing "Oh, that's too pretty to use for every day" to which I reply, "If ALL your potholders were pretty, they could ALL be used everyday."
