Crochet Patterns for Premium Vintage Potholders
There's something about collecting vintage potholders especially the ones made from these crochet patterns. Not only do the originals tell us stories about the past, but by recreating them, we are adding to the treasures of the future. Vintage crochet adds a special touch to any space. These classic potholder designs come in a pack of six patterns to give you variety and fun recreating the past. The patterns are perfect to make for yourself, or as a gift to someone special. Changing yarn colors lets you customize the look to match the kitchen or display area. Potholders similar to these designs served a practical use, making it difficult to find original vintage pieces. The Premium Vintage Potholder crochet patterns make a nice heirloom crochet project that you can pass down to many generations to come.
Sunbonnet Sue is an American icon who's been around for more than 100 years. Generally she appears in quilts, but here she's in a crochet pattern with a frilly-edged bonnet. The red Irish Rose potholder is another classic for your collection, as is the Yellow Rose. Their centers are similar but each potholder is unique. Dresses (and other apparel) feature a lot in vintage potholder collection. Here we have two; A pretty Pink-Edged Dress which reminds up of Springtime, and a Full-Skirt Dress in White and Stripes with picot edging. Crocheted granny squares are the foundation of many intriguing designs. In the Granny Square potholder crochet pattern, the three granny squares are folded in a kite-shape and joined at the top point to make a gorgeous adornment for your kitchen wall.
