Flower Potholder

I took a quick break from some other projects to try my hand at this cute tutorial by RubyRed Eclectic called Crochet Flower Pot Stand.

I have had it pinned for quite some time and yesterday I thought to give it a try. I used 3 colors of Caron Simply Soft yarn in white, grey and teal. It is a easy pattern to follow, you make both sides and then stitch them together. The hardest part for me was the slip stitching between the petals. I did alter my version by leaving out row 9, I was running short on the white yarn and wanted to make sure I had enough, and instead of 12 sts for row 10, I used just 10. Check out how mine turned out!



This pattern is really fun, I recommend it if you want to try something to use up some yarn and may take a day or two to make. I can see other possibilities for this pattern, downsizing it and making coasters or ornaments.

Did you try this pattern too? Share a photo or link to your blog! Thanks for stopping by!
