Christmas crochet pot holders? Why not! A nice accessory and a fast and fun gift idea!
During the Advent Calendar of this 2018, we have given you some free patterns, including some nice wool decorations for your Christmas.
Today we are giving you a free pattern to make 4 crochet Christmas pot holders in Nordic style, “Nordic Xmas”, designed for us by a passionate and very popular designer and maker on Instagram: Mara Fornasier.
The pot holders are made in Double Crochet (US Terms), with a variant of the Tapestry Crochet technique – traditionally worked in the round – instead worked flat, forth and back, using two colors, as shown in this video.
Cosa serve per realizzare le presine ad uncinetto “Nordic Xmas”?
- Prato Cotton yarn, (a 100% cotton yarn, eco-friendly and recycled, one, of whose origin we wrote in this post!) in two colors: Ecru and Red. You can choose your favorite color combo from the 20 colors available to date!
- 5 mm (H8 US) crochet hook (our coloured hook can be found here) – However, we recommend that you try it, because the 4.5 mm could be fine too
- Sewing needle
Which stitches are used?
The pattern level is intermediate, the Tapestry Crochet technique is simple, but you need a little practice, and just know the basic stitches!
- Chain Stitch – if you want a review of the slip knot and chain, I refer you to this posts
- Slip Stitch – go to this video to refresh your memory!
- Single Crochet (UK Double Crochet) – video tutorial on our Youtube Channel
- Double Crochet (UK Treble Crochet) – watch our video on Youtube
