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.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

Another word for Horn of Plenty is Cornucopia. Filled with produce, flowers or nuts it’s a symbol of abundance and nourishment making it the perfect centerpiece for a Thanksgiving table.

Follow the instructions for this vintage crochet pattern and you’ll have a great table decoration for Thanksgiving. This crochet pattern comes from an American Thread Star Book number 116 titled Crocheted Fashions. Probably from around the 1940’s.

At the end of the pattern there are instructions for starching the horn of plenty by heating a mixture of starch and water. In an earlier post I shared a Miniature Horn of Plenty Crochet Pattern that also has instructions for stiffening a crocheted item using water and sugar.


If you don’t want to take the time and trouble to make your own stiffening agent Aleene’s Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid is also a great way to stiffen your crocheted items. It’s non-toxic, thin and tintable. When dry, it’s water-resistant and easy to paint.
