Free Pattern: Kid-Sized Potholder
I saved this from my project graveyard (the bag where I put things I've lost interest in or couldn't figure out.) It started out as a burp cloth, when my #2 was on the way. When I didn't finish it before she was born, it got stashed. I was looking for this yarn for the potholder, and I realized that what I had already crocheted of the burp cloth was the exact thing I needed. The body of the pattern is, therefore, Christina Budd's copyrighted burp cloth pattern.
Less than one skein Peaches N' Cream cotton yarn (the variegated yarn looks nice with the pattern)
Size 4.25 (G/6) hook
ch - chain
sc - siongle crochet
dc - double crochet
sl st - slip stitch
Follow the instructions for the Burp Cloth pattern, ONLY through row 15. (I actually did a sc, dc on the end of the row instead of just the sc. Which is why I was confused and abandoned the project. :) )
At the end of row 15, ch 8, sl st in the last st of the row, finish off. Fold up 2/3 of the way to form a pocket, whipstitch the sides. Weave in ends.
