Color Burst Potholder

Hello my lovely people!

Has winter set in your city? How cold is it getting there? In HK its pretty bad, rain rain and some more rain. The temperatures have dropped to 15 degrees and all the woolen ware is out! Tho i should be loving the winter as we all deal with yarn and such things, i am a sucker for summer. Ask any mom with 2 small kids and i am sure they would say the same. I am putting 3 layers already for my children and oh boy its such a chore..the inners and jackets and sweaters and socks..and the list is endless..Only good thing is - i can enjoy yum food and hot cupsa coffee and Tea at any time of the day :)

Seeing rain all over i was inspired for making a spot of color.

 
You can find the free pattern HERE. The pattern is not for beginners and also the instructions are not very clear. You need to make 2 of the same circular shells and then join them both together using a combination of SCs and Chains. It gets a bit tough as you need to hold both the discs in your hand and balance the hook too. I could not follow much of the outlining from the pattern but saw a few pics and think figured it out!



Here is the back of the potholder. You can see the way the SCs have made neat lines over the edgings. Hope this pic helps you in figuring out the joining method.


Not a very happy parting shot..Lotsa rain and cold. Well i better not complain so soon as i have a good 3 months more of thie weather to deal with!!


Wishing for some sunny days, i am off now to do some domestic chores..Happy hooking, crafting, sewing, knitting..whatever you guys are up too :)

Love,
xxx
