Dog Paw and House Potholders
Cacti are happy, bright, summery, and fun - so Crochet Cactus Potholders are perfect for your kitchen! These thick squishy crocheted hot pads make great trivets too! The key to the Crochet Cactus Potholders is to use 100% cotton yarn - Red Heart Scrubby Smoothie! With cotton yarn, you can use these Cacti with hot dishes without worrying about melting your project on your next hot dish. The Crochet Cactus Potholders are a set - there's a tall cactus and a ball cactus, both kitchen ready. But they aren’t limited to being just potholders! The tall cactus also would make a great oven mitt if you sew two of them together. And the Ball Cactus would be super cute under a real flower pot! However you use them, they are sure to brighten up your table.
These potholders are easily styled for each kitchen decor! As they are large and supple (about 19 cm or 7,5in diameter) there's surely enough surface to keep your hand from burning while baking your delicious food. I would recommend cotton for the potholders, as it is easily to wash and and heat-resistant. In this pattern I used Phildar Phil Coton 3, but any other cotton will do! I used 5 different colours (4 for the body and 1 for the edging) but again, this is completely up to your imagination! Enjoy, and make some potholders! And when youre done, make some more! Because you can never ever have to many potholders, right? ps. They make an amazing house-warming gift!
Next, here is another example of an animal coaster pattern, which can be adopted to many crochet items as you need. At any time you can make a coaster, an applique, or a key cover. Moreover, you can also make two paws, stuff and sew them toghether to make a cute softie hanger for a school backpack. Definitely, the best gift ever for small Paw Patrol fans!
