Fabulous Rose Potholder

September 2015
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
3.0 mm
160 yards (146 m)
one size

This potholder design was inspired by all those gorgeous little rose motifs in Irish crochet with their layers upon layers of densely worked petals. It is a motif that I find endlessly inspiring, and here I am paying homage to Irish crochet by working the rose panel in traditional white, then adding a pop of colour with a sunny yellow background. This is a must have for any potholder wall.

The pattern is written using standard UK terms and includes clear charts for each section of the potholder - the back and front panels and the edging.

19.5cm (7,3/4 inches) in diameter.

7 rounds of circular motif worked in treble stitches with 12 stitch increase each round = 10cm (4 inches) diameter.

Basic stitches, working in the round and working rows in layers as-you-go (ie - working rows of petals behind each other).
