I am at a loss for words. What can I possibly say about the vintage-type pot holders/hot mats I crocheted, except to say, “I crocheted two vintage-type pot holders.”
I didn’t follow any pattern. These are just basic shapes, that most crocheters know, using cotton crochet thread, size 3, and a size 2 hook.
One I started with a round of dc, then the next round in cluster crochet to make it look like a flower.
The other one, I add a floral motif after it was finished.
For each pot holder, I crocheted 2 side. Then, I crocheted them together. One was crocheted together using a sc continuing with the main color then with the white, I did a long sc with a chain in between.
The square one, I sc them together with the main color, then I slip stitched around using white.
No excitement, no fanfare, just two crocheted vintage-type pot holder/hot mats crocheted by me.
