Designer Notes: I was experimenting with some different textured stitches and used one, the sedge stitch, as the basis for a potholder. I thought some of you might like the pattern, so here it is. --ML
Here's a stitch sample. I used Marsha's basic pattern, but used three strands of cotton and an "I" hook.For the potholder pictured, I used one strand redheart 4 ply (dark blue), one strand of southmaid 8 (white), and one stand of Lily Kabel Kotton (bright pink). I started with a chain 21, instead of ch 27.--sg
Cotton yarn, worsted weight (such as Sugar ' Cream, Lion Kitchen or Bernat handicrafter)
Size F hook, or whatever size gives correct gauge -- 27 chain stitches should be about 6 1/2 inches
Ch 27 (or any multiple of 3) - ch should be approx 6 1/2 in long.
Row 1: Skip 1st 2 ch (counts as 1 sc), work [1 hdc, 1 dc] into next ch, * skip 2 ch, work [1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc] into next ch; rep from * to last 3 ch, skip 2 ch, work 1 sc into last ch, turn.
Row 2: Ch 1 (counts as 1 sc), work [1 hdc, 1 dc] into 1st st, * skip [1 dc, 1 hdc], work [1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc] into next sc; rep from * to last 3 sts, skip [1 dc, 1 hdc], 1 sc into top of turning ch, turn.
Repeat Row 2 until potholder width equals length. Do not break off.
Rnd 1: Sc around potholder, placing 2 sc in each of first 3 corners; at last corner, ch 12 (for hanging loop), join with sl st to first sc of Rnd 1.
Rnd 2: Work reverse sc into same stitch as joining, in each ch of ch-12 loop and in each sc around. Join last st to 1st reverse sc of Rnd 2. Finish off. Weave in all loose ends. ####
