Crochet Patterns for Vintage Purple Potholders
Purple is said to be the color of good judgment. Not only that, but I've heard it said that if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. I love purple! It amazes me that you can take the warmest color, Red, and mix it with the coolest color, Blue, and end up such an ideal color for this crochet pattern!
This collection of vintage crochet potholders would look good in anyone's castle. (Purple is also associated with royalty!)
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. Anyway it goes your sure to love this crochet pattern.
