Title: Native American Crochet Potholders

Native American Crochet Potholder Patterns Review
Great Summertime Crochet Projects
They are also perfect summertime crochet projects because they are small projects that won’t “cover your lap” on hot days like an afghan does.
Yarn and Hook
Easy to Learn Crochet Technique
It is very important to read page 2 of the e-Pattern. It explains how the potholders are crocheted and which loop of the stitch you will be working into. It also reminds you that you will not be turning your work for this project.
American Crochet Terms
The patterns are written out in full, in American crochet terminology. For instructions which are being repeated a certain number of times, an “X” has been used to indicate “times”. For example, if you need to repeat something 9 times the instructions will be (sc, dc) 9X. Another way of writing this (in an expanded form) would be *1 sc in the next stitch, 1 dc in the next stitch**. Rep from * to ** nine times.
The back of the potholder is the same for all 7 designs. You will find the instructions for the back of the potholder on page 3. Be sure to read the Note provided on page 3 about the width measurement for the back piece and how to adjust your work if it is not matching up exactly.

Other Patterns To Try
This technique works really well for geometric designs and you can see other examples of Carol’s available patterns for Native American designs, hearts, diamonds, teddy bears, choo-choo trains, kitty cats and castles on her website.
Only simple stitches are used to make the potholders, so I feel a determined beginner would be able to make these projects. You will only need to understand where to find the front loops and back loops of your stitches, single crochet, double crochet and slip stitches. I love how easy this technique makes it to crochet mosaic designs.
