Crochet Square Placemat Potholder

Crochet Potholders are versatile. You have a choice to make them in any shape you wish. By using different combination and variety of Crochet Stitches, you can give them a lovely textured look. They are both decorative and functional and they also make beautiful gifts for your loved ones, be it any occasion. You can color code them and make them according to the holiday season.

Today am sharing the pattern for this super easy and quick to make Crochet Square Placemat Potholder. These work up really quickly. I have used Cobble Stone Stitch. This is an awesome stitch pattern which gives a lovely texture. 

This pattern is a repeat of only 2 rows throughout which is made by alternating each row. The Border is made up with Puff Stitches. These pot holders would look nice with both variegated and solid colors. These pretty potholders are the perfect beginner pattern for a quick and fun project to show off your crochet skills.
