Potholder Crochet Pattern

Here’s a potholder crochet pattern for a teapot with a recipe for a Minted Tea Cooler perfect for a summer afternoon party. Along with the teapot potholder are patterns that match for a cookie jar and plate potholder. These are from the a 1947 American Thread Company crochet pattern booklet titled Star Potholders.

Minted Tea Cooler Recipe

This is a great recipe if you have mint growing in your herb garden. If you’ve planted one mint plant, you probably do. Mint will take over the entire garden if you don’t contain it.

Free Crochet Bag Pattern to Hold Your Knitting A Crocheted Knitting Bag

Today’s crochet bag pattern freebie could be an oxymoron. A Crocheted Knitting Bag. Many times those of us that crochet also knit. So this bag would make sense. Some like one craft more than the other. Which do you prefer? Or do you like both.

 

Crochet Bag Pattern - Vintage Crafts and More

 

This pattern is from an American Thread Company Star Book titled Crocheted Fashions. The crocheted bag uses Heavy Crochet Mercerized Cotton in Forest Green and White.

Vintage Thread

This vintage thread is similar to a Size 5 crochet thread. The balls contained 100 yards. Use a No. 4 steel crochet hook, but since no gauge is given, you’ll have to experiment. Knitting sticks or handles complete the top of the crochet bag.

I did a search on Amazon and came up with DMC Petra Crochet Cotton Size 5. It looks similar.

 

 

Make sure to read the shipping times carefully on these threads. A couple of them I noticed say “usually ships in 1 to 3 months.” I don’t know about you, but I want my thread a lot sooner than that.
