    I just discovered your Christmas potholder patterns. Do you make them from a cotton yarn or doesn’t it matter?

    Reply

    • I used mine more as hot pads for things I knew wouldn’t melt them….if you’re planning to use them with really hot dishes, then you should definitely use cotton 🙂

  15. Thank you for the two free patterns,I truly will enjoy!

  16. This looks like a great pattern
    BUT it is not fair that you make us sign up for another site just to get YOUR free pattern.
    Why cant you let us get it from you

    • I’m not sure what you’re referencing as there are no sign ups required to get this pattern. If you don’t have a Ravelry account, then simply skip that step 🙂 Be sure to read the instructions thoroughly so you don’t miss the download link.
