Rose Granny Potholder

Rose Granny Square Potholder – Free Crochet Pattern

I found this beautiful crochet potholder at the Liberty Antique show.  This Rose Granny Crochet Potholder is worked with size 10 crochet cotton thread.  You could try it with larger yarns, especially sport weight cotton.  If it gets too large you could decrease the number of rows.  To make the crochet skill easier you could omit the color change in the granny rounds and just do one solid color of crochet thread.  The possibilities are endless!

    Maggie, in the above pattern (which I love, by the way) I notice on the instructions for the FRONT, Round 10 is missing. It goes from Round 9, where you fasten off and weave in ends, straight to Round 11 where you join white thread. Is this just a mis-numbering in the rows, or was Row 10 inadvertently omitted?

    Thanks for a clarification 🙂

    Wow, that is just marvelous! I adore this potholder…I'd NEVER use it, just admire it! Thanks for the pattern, it's just lovely!

    Here is the correction for the Rose Granny Potholder:

    Rnd 11 – should read Rnd 10.
    Rnds 12-16 – should read Rnds 11-15.
