This week workshop was actually an ordered one :: the girls saw this cotton potholder laid in my crochet box (they always look for new things in this box) and asked me to write down the pattern for our next meeting :: which I did :: though it wasn’t an easy one to write :: I think I will keep it as a workshop pattern for now :: Queen Anne’s vintage potholder workshop :: it was quite complicated to write down this pattern and therefore I guess it will be a hard one to crochet from written words even-though it’s written as a ‘step by step’ pattern :: so unfortunately this pattern will not be available at my shop  :: it is a workshop pattern only :: but HEYYY don’t be disappointed, read on and find out what I’m about to share with you soon :: something pretty is in work for you :: DSC_4213A IMG_20150525_135500 For this potholder workshop the girls had to crochet the front side at home :: I sent them the front instructions by email :: and the plan was to crochet the back side here at the workshop as this was something new I wanted to show them :: the back side of this potholder is connected to the front side as you go ::
