Round 1 - Side 2: Working down the opposite side of the chain, Single Crochet in each chain. Slip stitch to join with the beginning stitch. (30 Single Crochet Total on side 2)  (There will be a total of 60 single crochet, both sides)

Note:  You can work this project with joined rounds or with the continual round.  To work the continual round, you will not join.  Work the first single crochet in the top of the first single crochet, continue around.  You may want to mark the first stitch with a yarn marker so you know where the first stitch is at.

Round 2-20: Work 1 SC in each stitch around.  Join with the first stitch if you are working joined rounds.  

If you have worked the continual round, skip one stitch, slip stitch in the next to even off the round.

Cut a long tail and secure.  Fold the potholder in to a square.  Click here to See Video Segment.  Sew the two edges together. Sew in the tail.

  2. Hello Teresa,

    I really love your all your videos. It's all simple and fun to learn.

    If it's not too much to ask for, could you provide a video of crochet bolero. Just a simple one will do. I'd really want to crochet one myself. I'm just a beginner, I don't understand patterns available online but I can do it with the guidance of video.

    I really hope you can provide one.

    Thanks again.
