Free Crochet Pattern Old-Fashioned Shell Stitch Potholder


Free Crochet Pattern 
Old-Fashioned Shell Stitch Potholder Pattern

Finished Sizes 8" Diameter
Skill Level - Easy
The best yarn for potholders is going to be one which does not transfer heat. Cotton is the best choice for potholders. Wool is also a great option for crochet potholders. Acrylic and polyester yarns are not suitable for potholders since they can melt when they come into contact with heat.

The potholder has larger hole it is better for sitting hot items on or decoration.
