One of my favorite vintage treasures to collect are crocheted pot holders. Oh, how these lovelies make me smile and warm up inside! I love how they bring such handmade prettiness and color to my home. I adore the rose ones most, and have been wanting to try to make them ever since I started crocheting.
So, I started collecting vintage pot holder pattern books to learn how all those sweet ladies made them. This one was my latest find, and I just love the graphics. Wish I could have bought it for 10 cents!
All these pot holders are so delicately crocheted with the smallest of colorful threads and hooks.
Are you the Queen of the Kitchen? I love this window scene pot holder. Too cute!
The rose ones are always so beautiful!
I made it my goal this year to try my hand at making some, and I can tell you that I have been so intimidated by that No. 7 size hook and size 10 thread, but...
I finally started one, and I am actually loving it! It took a little bit to get used of the hook and thread, but so far so good. I had to learn how to make a cluster for the leaves, which was confusing at first, but I finally got it. So, I am off to add the creamy white stitches. I have a feeling that these might become a little addicting to make. I can already imagine all the pretty different colors to make them in!
Wishing you a day full of sweetness!!
