I am still trying to figure out a potholder pattern for my swap. I really liked this flower one I came across online. Whipped up the first one no problems. So of course I can whip up 4 more for the swap. It wasn’t so. No matter what I did I couldn’t get my front and back pieces to line up so I could crochet them together. I think i crocheted with a tighter tension the second time around. But after all that messing around and trying to make it work i was sick of it so “back to the drawing board” as they say.
Pattern: A Flower
Made for: Me now 🙂
Notes: I had to make the back bigger to match my front but that was easy. I also added the flower in the middle but my mom gave me that idea. I really like this potholder so i am glad i got to keep it but not so glad that i have to find a different pattern for the swap. Who knew this could be so difficult?
On a more positive note, Check out my Rhododendron:
This is one of my favorite things about Spring. Especially because those flowers are only there for a couple of weeks and then they are gone until the next Spring. Treasure the short Spring moments 🙂
