Grandma's Gone Potty

Grandma Potholder...

This is my new ruffled potholder...
I will be putting up a tutorial on this very soon...
I have had it finished before the move
but now I just have to locate all the pieces of
paper with the instructions scribbled down...

It will be a very long tutorial and I might need to put it as two posts
as I really wanted to do it step by step for all the new
beginner crocheters to enjoy...
It might look complicated but really I will be making the steps very
clear and easy...

I have used the beautiful yarn from Debbie Stollers collection
which was just so lovely to use...
and amazing colours...

So please stay tuned
with hook at the ready...

and I hope I will have everyone going quite potty
over this one...

Hey what a pretty potholder. I like ruffles, but I don't know how to make it. Looking forward to the tutorial.
ps I've become obsessed with crocheting the granny hearts :)

I was just looking for a tutorial on making a potholder. My grandmother used to make them and I would love to make them now. I wish she was here to help me. But I'm going to try your tutorial!
