Crochet reveal

Hello again everyone, hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend.

In and among busy times, I managed to find some space for crochet, and in my last post gave  a cheeky peek at something I was working on - would you like to see the finished result?

Some flowery rounds...

An eight-round flower...

A corsage perhaps?

No... some leaves were attached...

More rounds...

A placemat? Or doily? The start of a new crochet blanket or cushion?


Its a...


It has a solid treble crochet backing, so although it looks quite intricate and fragile it offers a lot of protection when lifting hot pans from the cooker and feels surprisingly sturdy.  It was a lot of fun to make, I am sure I will make more for gifts for family and friends.  I have just started on a reverse-colour version, i.e. the flower is cream and the background pink.  I also think that lemon, and cornflower blue would look good.  And even perhaps a really rich, deep purple or red...the possibilities are endless!

What crafting projects have you worked on recently?  Would love to hear about them!



  1. It is beautiful! I love that layered flower very much, and it would look pretty as a corsage too......and as a blanket square! The pot holder is such a pretty idea to brighten up a kitchen.
    Wishing you a happy week!

  2. It's too nice to use as a pot holder surely, I love it and can't bear the thought of it getting gravy or some other foody substance on it.
    Lots of these would look wonderful as a quilt or cushion cover.

  3. thank you for popping by my Blog today. I love your crochet but far too nice to be a pot holder. Amanda x

  4. It is lovely and seems very intricate to make. You did a fantastic job.
    Hugs to you,

  5. It's really beautiful! It looks like an antique piece.

  6. WOW! A very elegant potholder, Helen! I just finished making four smaller bunnies from 8" knit squares but am thinking I want to try a crochet square version. xx

  7. That pot holder is simply magnificent and it's so pretty I think you should hang it on the wall in the kitchen as art! Very impressive! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
