Sturdy Six-Sided Potholder Designer: Mary Dixon © CP-0016

Sturdy Six-Sided Potholder Size: 7-1/2 inches

This potholder is made out of carpet warp. Carpet warp is thicker and sturdier than Cotton #10 thread. It is used as the backing for handmade carpets. It may be difficult for you to find carpet warp because it isn't sold in traditional craft stores. You CAN get it in stores with weaving products. If you still have trouble finding it, email Sharon and she'll tell you how to get it from her local yarn shop.

Cotton Carpet Warp.
Steel Crochet Hook Size #6.


  • To begin, chain 6, sl st with first ch to form loop.
  • Ch 3, 11 dc in loop; sl st in top of first ch-3.
  • Ch 3, dc in top of first dc, 2 dc in next dc, ch 1. *2 dc in each of next two dc, ch 1.* Repeat between * until the circle is complete; sl st in top of ch-3. There should be 24 stitches in this circle (row).
