Mix & Match your own crochet pot holders with this free pattern by @hobbydingen

We are Ingrid and Marjan, a creative mother and daughter duo. A few years ago we picked up our crochet hooks and knitting needles again and since that day we have been crocheting and knitting together. We prefer to make accessories and decorations in our favorite colors. Blankets, pillows, baskets, scarves, hats and shawls… we make it all! Marjan has been designing crochet and knitting patterns since 2015. At first only for our own website, but later also for magazines and websites. You can find our creations on our blog Hobbydingen and Instagram & Facebook. For Katia’s blog we have designed simple and colorful crochet pot holders which are great for beginners. Pick your 2 favorite colors of Katia Fair Cotton and use our free crochet pattern which you can find below.

Mix & Match design

For this design we’ve used Katia Fair Cotton which is a 100% organic and high quality cotton yarn. It’s produced according to fair-trade norms by small farmers in India and Tanzania. The potholders consist of a front and back which are then worked together. The colorful stripes and stitches worked in the back loops result in a beautiful texture. Choose your two favorite colors and mix & match your own crochet pot holders!
