If you have never crochet a potholder before, this simple granny circle is a great place to start. Just as easy to work as the basic granny square, it can be quickly crochet in just a couple of hours. It is made using a beautifully soft yet sturdy mercerised cotton, which is an ideal fibre for daily use in the kitchen as it can withstand regular washing and is resilient to high temperatures. Practical and pretty! What more do you need from a potholder?

The pattern is written using standard UK terms and includes a clear chart for the complete potholder.
