This is a darling potholder. I am not a great crocheter but I might be able to manage it. You are such a talented hooker, I love looking at your beautiful finishes. Thank you for sharing, you inspire me.

Ann said...

Thank you, Sandi Jo! I bet you can make the potholder, it is pretty easy once you get going. Let me know how it turns out if you try it!

thank you so so much for this sunflower pattern,I loved it,and because I took this project in the car with me,and not my laptop,I did the petals slightly different than yours(couldn't remember) I did a cluster with a ch-5 and sc into the same sp(4sts used for ea petal) and the petals curled in the cutest way!
Regards,Heidi
