Vintage High Tea Potholders Crochet Pattern

Tea time is a special time for sharing. These precious potholders are reminiscent of the days when we had the time to brew a perfect cup of our favorite tea and enjoy it, sitting outside under the trees near the rose garden.

In the madness of current times, we are all so rushed that we are content with a dunked tea bag in a mug of hot water. Here's the art of brewing tea at a leisurely pace…

Start with fresh water in the tea kettle and bring it to the boil.  Use fresh tea, even if you choose to use teabags. Once the water has boiled, pour a small amount into the teapot and swirl it around to warm the pot and then discard the water. Add the tea to the pot. Boil the kettle again and pour the boiling water over the tea in the pot. Cover the teapot with a tea cozy (Maggie's Crochet has some patterns for this!) and let the tea steep for about five minutes (or longer if using herbal teas). Remove the tea cozy and stir the brewed tea before pouring. Put your feet up and enjoy!

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.

These Vintage Crochet patterns are sure to please!
