Here are two cute potholders I made for a friend recently. They are from the www.lionbrand.com website. You do have to register in order to get the free patterns - however; registration is free. The patterns are called: Momma Chickadee Potholder and Baby Chickadee Potholder. Aren't they the cutest things? My friend is really enjoying them. They were so easy to make too ! What a wonderful gift to make and receive. Why don't you try it? You'll be glad you did.
