DECEMBER First Friday Freebie

OMG! Can this really be December already?? It is time for our First Friday Freebie contest again. I can hardly believe it! For this month, I have a really great booklet to give away. I would imagine most of my readers could find at least one thing in this 27 pattern book to make, right? We are giving away Annie's Attic Ultimate Book of Pot Holders this month. It has a large variety of every kind of potholder you can imagine!
In order for a chance to win this book, just leave a comment here on this post telling us if you have ever crocheted a pot holder before and what design it was.
The random drawing will be on Friday, December 18th. Good luck to everyone!
BTW, I have a new Etsy Shoppe at
http://www.etsy.com/shop/toocutecrochet  where I have several Christmas/Holiday patterns for sale by download. Come and visit when you have the chance!
Pin It!

I have crocheted a potholder. The pattern just came out of my head. But it did not turn out really well because i was new to crocheting and did not double it so it wasn't thick enough lol.

Boy, does time fly.

I haven't crocheted a potholder just yet because I am a newbie. Right now I'm working on perfecting the things I can crochet and then I'll try the newer things as I gain the experience. =)

would love that book!

I have crocheted a pot holder but just a standard square with a scallop border. I would love to learn some new ones though

No potholders yet many many dishcloths. Just learned to crochet last month. At christmas EVERYONE is getting a discloth - some good, some not so good & some downright hilariously bad!. Time to move up to potholders!

My very 1st pot holder was when I first learned how to crochet. My Grandmother had tried to teach me when I was just 7 years old, but I couldn't get the hang of more than a chain stitch then. When I got to age 12, they were able to teach me at my church group..and we all made pot holders to give to our Mom's for Mothers day. :) I don't remember the color, only how proud I was to have done it and to give it to my Mom with Love.

My maternal grandmother, who taught me how to crochet when I was 8, *tried* to show me how to make a potholder, but my little fingers were much better at chaining. :) I've since upgraded my skills (Grandma is even now asking ME to make items for HER to give as gifts--let me tell you, that does a granddaughter's heart good!), and I especially love the chicken potholder featured in this book. My best friend recently got a small flock of chickens, and I've been wanting to make her some chicken potholders. Bawk, bawk!

I made up my own pattern. It was double crochets. I am new to reading patterns, but I have crocheted since the 6th grade. ( more a visual, or show me, let me write it in my own terms) So hard to overcome this method!!!

I stitched a square potholder to replace the store bought one I had that had disappeared. I learned how to crochet last month when I had a tooth pulled. My husband had suggested I do something to get my mind off of the pain and crocheting worked! He regrets it now because I crochet EVERYTHING! All of my kids have hats and scarves now :-).

I crochet quite a bit but have never gotten around to a potholder! This booklet would be fun and I'm sure would inspire me to go ahead and make a few.
