Super Saturday Quick Gift Crochet Along!!!

Super Saturday Quick Gift Crochet Along!!!

Today in my Beatrice Ryan Designs CAL Facebook Group we are doing a Super Saturday Quick Gift Crochet Along with my newest pattern, Grandma’s Double Thick Potholders both in Style I & II…

These are a great gift idea, super easy and fast… Christmas is just a couple weeks away and these are the perfect last minute gift!!

You can join my Facebook CAL Group by clicking here… and start the Super Saturday Fun!!! We will be positing our finished pics as we go… So get your yarn, hooks and camera ready and let’s do this!!!

I have been using Peaches & Cream Cotton Yarn by Yarnspirations… I was able to easily get this both at Walmart and JoAnns… But, many people just use their scrap yarn collection in Acrylic or Wool and that will work just fine as long as you don’t use these as a trivet with a very hot pan.

Make 27 Fsc (or ch 28, turn and sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across)

Round 1: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, *ch 1, sk st, sc in next st*, repeat *to* 12 more times, ch 1, working on opposite side of beginning Fsc(see pic below)- sc in 1st st of this side, repeat *to* 13 times, ch 1, join with sl st to beginning sc *drop color B and pick up color A for sl st*, = 28 sc & 28 ch 1sp

Round 2: Ch 2(this counts as a ch 1 sp now and throughout), sk first sc, *sc in next ch 1 sp, ch 1, sk next sc*, repeat *to* around. join with sl st changing to color A. = 28 sc & 28 ch1 sp.
