although i did a lot of practicing with dk weight cotton yarns, i decided early on that i would embrace the whole vintage feel of the cotton crocheted potholder and work with a thinner cotton thread.
the potholder design i'm going with is one inspired by a potholder i found at a flea market last year and that i've had hanging on my kitchen wall since.
since this photo was taken, i've made 2 more. just one more to go!
once the swap is over i'll write out the pattern for these.
