It’s Labor Day weekend in the United States and this marks the end of summer vacations. One last barbecue over the weekend before the grill is covered and put away. Of course, if you live in a place where the climate is nice all year round, you can leave it out and use the recipe in this post all year long.

Before we get started with the patterns, I have a recipe to share that is included with the patterns in this vintage crochet booklet. The fruit potholders pattern has a recipe for…….

Spiced Fruit Compote

Spiced Fruit Compote Recipe - Vintage Crafts and MoreTo clarify, a No. 2½ can translates to 3½ cups or 27 to 29 ounces of fruit. A No. 2 can is 2½ cups or 20 ounces. Also, a greengage plum is the color of a granny smith apple and the size of an apricot. It’s firm, sweet and has a syrup like juice.

This would be yummy alone as a dessert or served over vanilla ice cream.

I’ve posted another pot holder pattern and recipe from this booklet for Maple Sugar Graham Crackers and an Acorn Potholder.

The main body of each potholder is the same. The fruits, Apple, Pear and Strawberries, have a separate set of instructions.

Mercerized Crochet Cotton is used for the body of the holder. Six strand mercerized embroidery cotton floss and pearl cotton are used for the fruit decoration. The crochet hook size is No. 8 or No. 9.
