Spring time is my favorite! Our back yard has the perfect shade of green and I love the smells and colors of blooming flowers in my garden:
Oh, how beautiful it is!
You spot my buttercups?
Last Wednesday I visited our local farmers’ market to purchase not only fresh flowers but also fruits and vegetables. And that made me think. How nice would it be (and how cozy and old fashioned..) to crochet a couple of vegetable potholders for my kitchen? Well, I am sure there is a pattern out there, somewhere, but I did it My Way! Long time ago I wrote a blog post about a crocheted baby jacket, you can find the link here. I described how I used a paper template as my crochet pattern, and that is exactly what I did with my potholders. I cut out the shape of a lemon and bell pepper and used this as my pattern.
As you see, the lemon was a bit easier than the bell pepper. I used the Single Crochet Stitch for this project.
For the bell pepper I used two different types of cotton, and crocheted about 2/3 in one shade and 1/3 in the other.
I used worsted weight cotton yarn, but you can use any left over yarn. How about making a green or orange bell pepper?
Do you like my old fashioned veggie pot holders? I am already using them!
Thanks for reading my blog post and please leave a comment..I always enjoy that!
