Granny’s Pot Holder / Hot Pad and Pot Holder for the Microwave.
This is by no means an original pattern, Granny use to make them.
I used the pattern, and adapted it for use with the microwave. Thumb fits in one pocket fingers fit in the opposite side pocket.
This crochet pattern uses a size G hook and Peaches & Cream cotton.
Sc. in back loop of each stitch along chain, 3sc in end st.
You will now be on the opposite side of the chain. Sc in back loop of each st. to the beginning again, continue to sc in each stitch in back loop, round and round, the ends will start to curl you want them to. When they meet together to make a folded square the crocheting is done. For the regular potholder tie off end leaving a tail long enough to sew edges together with a whip stitch. This is your double thickness pot holder or hot pad.
For the microwave pot holder tie off ends cut and weave in. This makes for the open sides where you put your thumb and finger tips.
