Potholder

Ch 21

Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: 1 sc in each sc across. Ch 1 and turn. Repeat 2nd row until you have the size to form a square. End off.

Edging: With constrasting color, work 1 sc into each sc around and working
3 sc in each corner.

At end of last sc work a ch 10 length of yarn and join into first sc of edging to form a loop for hanging the potholder.

End off. Darn ends in. 
 
Note: For potholders being used for very hot
objects it is best to use "heat resistant" yarn.
Polyester or nylon will melt when in
contact with high temperatures.

Another idea! For added protection...
Make two of the above potholder and 
sc them together to make one thick potholder.

All Purpose Scrubbie

Here is a scrubbie that is soft enough to shower and wash your face with and still tough enough to clean dirty pots and pans. I wouldn’t recommend using it for all of these at one time, so be sure to make enough to go around. No matter if you are a beginner or an advanced crocheter here is a pattern you can enjoy. It doesn’t take much yarn and can be whipped up fairly quickly. For extra scrubbing power, add some nylon netting.

Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)

Round 1: ch 2, 6 sc in second ch from hook, place marker: 6 sc
Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around: 12 sc
Round 3: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc) around: 18 sc
Round 4: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc) around: 24 sc
Round 5: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc) around: 30 sc
Round 6: (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc) around, sl st in next sc, finish off: 36 sc

Strap

Row 1: ch 19, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across: 18 sc
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across, finish off: 18 sc
 Sew strap to scrubbie with a yarn needle.
