*POTHOLDER, STURDY SIX-SIDED (Size 7 1/2 "(c)
DESIGNED BY MARY DIXON
Donated to Crochet Partners by Sharon Devol,
the Designer's Granddaughter.

For information about reprints, see note below

This potholder is made out of Carpet Warp. Thicker and sturdier than Cotton #10 thread, it is used as the backing for handmade carpets.

It may be more difficult for you to find because it isn't sold in traditional craft stores. You CAN get it in stores with weaving products and it is available through Mail Order from Halycon Yarns.
Sharon says "If you can't find it you can try thick cotton string. But the Carpet Warp works best."



MATERIALS
Cotton Carpet Warp.
Steel Crochet Hook Size #6.
DIRECTIONS:

To begin, chain 6, sl st with first ch to form loop.

Ch 3, 11 dc in loop; sl st in top of first ch-3.

Ch 3, dc in top of first dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 1. *2 dc in each of next two dc, ch 1.* Repeat between * until the circle is complete; sl st in top of ch-3. There should be 24 stitches in this circle (row).

Ch 3. *2 dc in first dc, dc in next two dc, then 2 dc in next dc, ch 1. Continue from * around circle, then sl st in top of ch3.*

Repeat between * until there are 10-14 rows, depending on desired size.

MAKE TWO COMPLETE PANELS; finish one panel leaving a 12" tail of extra string. Then use a contrasting color and put the two panels together with a sc through both panels' top dc; and 2 sc in each of the ch spaces.

At the beginning point, attach last sc to first sc with sl st. Pick up extra length and ch the two colors together to form loop of desired length. Finish off and pull extra lengths between panels to hide.
