Crochet Pattern Candlestick Potholders
Skill Level: Easy Skill
NOTE: 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.

Crochet this potholder using crochet cotton thread size 10 and a steel crochet hook to obtain gauge.
This is an easy to follow crochet pattern that is an intermediate skill. The vintage potholder is created by crocheting 2 sides using double crochet stitches. Sides are crocheted together. Candles, Hollies and Berries are crochet separately and sewn on. Flame is embroidered on.
