Thanks for sharing. One of the organizations I'm involved includes pot holders in the tote bag...I'm thinking heavier yarn and perhaps an additional round to make the pattern a little bigger....and a fabulous way to attack the yarn stash!!
A Granny square is probably the easiest and quickest to learn stitch/pattern in crochet. They can become like mindless sewing after a bit. You start and next thing you know, you're done.
This is supposed to be a dishcloth. If I were going to make it as a potholder using regular yarn, I'd put a cotton/flannel backing on it. Most regular yarns have poly or nylon in them and they will transmit heat. My first thought when I saw the picture was I could use some of the leftover Granny Squares I have. I still may.
You can also make two of them in the Sugar and Cream and use a finishing slip stitch or row of single crochet around them to keep them together. I've done that with other patterns.
My sister (not Sue) can crochet anything. She has made me doilies and scrubbies, doll clothes for my grandaughters babies. I can crochet, but not the granny square. I never figure out the right place to stop. I've made lots of ripple afghans that I don't mind claiming I made.LOL But Never Ever a Granny square.
paus...I agree with using sugar and cream yarns for kitchen items like this. I use the 100% cotton yarns of that weight all the time for dishcloths and other items like mug rugs, and little square thingies for underneath your warm bowls/ dishes on the table. ( not right out of the over hot) Nice little gifts they make for teachers neighbors special things for holidays and such. Everyone love handmade things!!!!
