Starry Night Potholder



It's written up! Here is the pattern for "Starry Night." NOTE: I wrote this up AFTER I made one, so technically it hasn't been tested. Please let me know if you find any mistakes, have suggestions to make it better, etc. I'm not a profeesional designer and this is the first pattern I have ever written out :-)

I used an F hook, but it could have been tighter, so might benefit from an E or even a D.

Here's a pic of the second version I made with the solid backing.

I made a flat circle backing for potholder use, but it could also just be decorative!
