Meshie-Potholder

You will make 2 "squares"

Materials:

All cotton ww yarn (examples use 3 colors)
G Hook
Tapestry needle


Directions:
1st Square:
We'll call this the front piece
With color A chain 29
Row 1 In 2nd ch from hook sc then sc across (28 sc), ch 3 then turn

Row 2 skip first sc then dc in next sc, ch1, *skip sc then dc in next, ch 1*

Row 3 sc across {last sc will be between a dc and ch3 ( 28 across)}

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have 9 rows of row 2 and 10 rows of row 3

Fasten Off
2nd Square: We'll call this the back piece

With color B chain 29

Row 1 In 2nd ch from hook sc then sc across (28 sc), ch 3 then turn

Row 2 dc across row

Alternate dc with sc rows. Do 10 rows of sc and 9 rows of dc

Fasten off

Weave in Ends (or you can leave this to the end)

Assemble:

Lay the back side of the back piece (are you following me??) down on table with the back side down.

Lay the back side of the front piece on top of the back piece. (Have I confused you yet?)

Matching up the sc and dc rows will simplify crocheting these pieces together.

Edging:
NOTE: Both pieces together

1st round--

attach color B ch1

sc around-- In corners, put 1 sc ch2 and 1sc

slip stitch into first stitch when finishing row

Fasten off

2nd round

attach color C in a corner ch3

dc around--In corners put 2 dc ch1 and 2dc

slip stitch into first stitch when finishing row

Here you may opt to chain 10 and sl st to corner to make a hanger-circle thingie.

Fasten off

Weave in all loose ends
Note: If you see that I have made a "goof" please let me know. I am the only one who has "tested" this pattern so some "goofs" may have been missed.
If you use this pattern please give me some feedback on it. Thank you for visiting and hugs to all...

    1. Jenny if you're reading this, when I click on your name to send you a message, there isn't a link to an email addy. So, I'm hoping you'll come back here. I'd be happy to go along with your plan.
