Where would crochet be if it weren’t for the rise of granny chic? It is hardly worth thinking about! If, like me, you are a huge fan of this style trend, then this potholder is a must for your crochet make list as no potholder wall will be complete without it. Its gorgeous colour combination of emerald, orange and sunny yellow with just a hint of pretty pink and blue is vintage folk style, and epitomises all that we love about granny chic.

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.
