Crochet, Gifting

Easy Breezy Potholders

My bestie loves to cook and her birthday was the perfect opportunity for me to whip up some potholders. It was one of the first things I learned to crochet and is wonderfully simple, yet fun.

To finish up her gift I picked up a Blue Q oven mitt from Copper Pony. The mitt is sassy, fun, and matches the potholders perfectly. I also found a fantastic card that matched my color scheme. If you are in the St. Cloud area I definitely recommend checking out the store. There are tons of fun goodies, the shop smells amazing, and the owner is phenomenal. I was also lured in buy the close-out sale at Herberger’s and found a cute spatula to round out the gift.

I used the Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Retro Stripe and the recommended hook size I-9 (5.5mm) from Boye. I love using the stripes yarn because the color change motivates me to keep working on my project. I picked up mine at Joann so I could use the 5% cashback from Ibotta. I also picked up a few skeins of Big Twist yarn to test out because they had some great deals for it,

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I made the handmade portion of my gift!
