Round Rose Potholder – Free Crochet Pattern

In my dining room I have the cutest white rooster hook rack. I can’t remember where I bought it but I just love it. On the hooks I have several of my favorite vintage potholders. The Round Rose Potholder is a vintage design that I found at an antique show. Try this in a variety of crochet cotton thread colors to brighten up your kitchen décor.

Note: This vintage potholder is for decorative use only. If you pad between the back and front with Mylar lined fabric you could use this potholder and not get burned.
