Tyyne was the name of my grandmother and she taught me this potholder pattern when I was a teenager. I haven´t seen this pattern anywhere else and I happen to love it. As I loved my granny very much.
I have to thank Flia for this English version. Without her help it wouldn´t have been done, at least not as quickly.
Please inform me if you have any problems with the pattern. Please leave a comment if you make one, so I can take a look at it. Have fun!
Any 100% cotton dk yarn in two matching colours 100 - 150 grams and a hook to match (2,0 mm - 3,0mm).
With colour A (the darker one in the pictures)
Row 1: chain 56, or until you get the desired length + 10
Row 2: (all rows must start with the ch 1 hole and end with 3 dc)
chain 4, dc in the next 3 ch, (ch 1, dc in the next 3 ch) repeat (-) to your desired width, ending the row with 3 dc.
Row 3: ch 4, (3 dc in the next chloop of previous row, ch 1), repeat (-) ending the row with 3 dc.
Repeat row 3 until you’ve reached the desired length. For an equal sided square make 2 rows more than the double of dc groups.
Change to colour B (the lighter colour in the pictures).
Row 1: Ch 4, 3 dc in the chloop of previous row.
Row 2: Chain 2 (this is the start of row two)
Lay down the work on a table, the row you just made facing you. Fold this row, down underneath the last row of colour A.
Make the ch from row 1 (color B) visible through the hole of the colour A square. (the last picture above).
Dc 3 in that chain, working through the hole.
Row 2 continues: Ch 1, dc 3 in the next chloop of colour B, through the next hole of colour A until the end of the row.
Row 3: Ch 2, dc 3 in the next hole of colour A, (ch 1, dc 3 in the next hole of colour A), repeat (-)
Continue as in row 3 until you’ve filled all the holes of the colour A square. Do not cut.
Suggestion for edging:
Continue with the same yarn from the corner: (ch 3, dc 3 in the same st), repeat(-), join to the edge start with a sl st . Do not cut.
Hanger: ch 40, attach with a sl st either to the ch of the row below or to the last ch of the ch40), turn and fill up the ring with sc´s, push the sc together so the ring becomes stiff. Cut.
Weave in ends.
