Premium Vintage Potholders - Set 2 Crochet Pattern
After visiting antique shows, where I'm on the lookout for crocheted vintage potholders, or buying crochet 'treasures' online, I keep all the crocheted potholders in a large box. When new crochet potholders arrive, I try and mix-and-match them with the supply in the box to make up various vintage crochet pattern sets. Sometimes things just fall into place and a theme emerges. When I saw the Clock, immediately I knew I wanted another Premium Vintage crochet pattern set - with red as the common color.
If you want to use the finished vintage potholder in the kitchen, I suggest lining them with either a store bought potholder or layers of cotton quilt batting. Another idea is to place hot cookware on the backside of your potholder to protect the front from scorch marks. I have seen a few old potholders with a cotton backing added to them showing signs of scorching. The front of the potholder is like new but the back shows all the wear and tear from use.
