Fisherman's Ring Potholder

I thought I would try my hand at one of Patricia Hewitt's patterns for a potholder. I used the Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton and a G hook. It's amazing that I can use an F or G easily with this cotton, but not with the Lion's Brand or with the other kitchen type cottons.

The square ended up at about 6", but thought it was too small. I then added edging #130 from Edie Eckman's book. If you have her book for crocheted edgings, note that the second round is wrong ... it says to dc in the dc below - but the "below" stitches are all sc.

The photos were taken with my iPod so are a tad fuzzy. ;o)

Happy June!!!


  1. Your photos posted well.

    Don't you just love the Hobby Lobby cotton. I have used it for baby clothes and it works up so soft . . it is, in my opinion, a much nicer cotton than most. I just wish it came in more variegated colors with matching solids.

  2. Oh, that is so cute! Looks adorable, and I do like the colors you chose for it.
