Magic PotHolder Seed Stitch Crochet

Size G Crochet Hook

26 FSC or 27 Chains

Round 1: CH 1, 1 SC, 1 DC in ea st around or each chain if you are using chains. Join.

This project will be worked in rounds, turning on each round for an even distribution of the seed stitch. Turn. Mark the beginning stitch with a marker so you know where your round ends.

Round 2-12: SC, DC in each DC on the previous round. Continue around with a SC,DC (Seed Stitch) combination in each DC around. Join in beg SC, turn.

The piece will be in the shape of a pouch with an opening at the top. Lay the piece down so that you have a square. Fold the opening edges so they come together and touch each other. This will form two more points on the potholder creating the square. Knot and Sew in the beginning tail. Knot and Sew seam shut and sew in all tails.


  1. I can't get my mind around this. How can you have 27 chains and either do a sc then dc along or a sc and dc in each stitch along and either way end up with 32 stitches?

  2. Cynthia,
    Misprint--52 rather than 32.

  3. Nice! I will have to try this! Do I start with 27 or 52 stitches?
