Summer is here and so are the vegetables

Right now there’s an abundance of corn on the cob in my neck of the woods so when I came across this vibrant corn potholder in a Clark’s and Coats 1951 booklet I wanted to share it.

The colors and texture on this potholder look like a lot of fun and a nice addition to decorate or use in your kitchen. The ear of corn is crocheted then sewn onto the pot holder. It’s lined with felt.

Materials you’ll need

You’ll need several different materials and colors to crochet this potholder. Some no longer available but the Size numbers are given, so that will help for an alternative cotton.

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 October and the VTNS Fan Freebie!

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.

VTNS Fan Freebie Friday – Vintage Diamonds and Hearts Potholder Crochet Pattern

Share with your friends...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPrint this pagePin on PinterestShare on Google+

Welcome to the VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Facebook Fanpage Fan Freebie Friday.  For today’s Freebie we have a Valentine theme.  Crochet patterns for Diamond and Heart potholders.

What goes better with Valentines Day than a diamond? The gift of love. I know the potholder doesn’t come close to the real thing, but it is a cute pattern.

I need to make a note of what kind of yarn and the amount needed for your potholder project since it isn’t spelled out in the pattern pdf. The patterns call for a ball of White and 50 yards of color. First of all, you should always use a cotton yarn for potholders, since acrylic can melt if it gets in contact with a burner.

This pattern is from an Enterprise Yarn booklet from the 1940’s.  Enterprise Yarn is no longer made. Their claim to fame was that your project can be worked up in no time. “By crocheting with Enterprise Yarn, because of it’s size, it makes only 5 or 6 stitches to the inch”. It’s also heavy, absorbent and soft.

Looking around I found a couple yarns that may be it’s equivalent for this project.  Examples of Kitchen Cotton Yarn:

  • Lily Sugar ‘n’ Cream
  • Lion Cotton by Lion Brand Yarns
  • Peaches & Crème by Elmore Pisgah
  • Bernat Handicrafter Cotton
  • Aunt Lydia’s  Fashion Crochet Cotton in #3 with a 00 Hook may also give you the right gauge for this project.

All of these examples are worsted weight / medium weight yarns.

Sometimes VTNS sellers on eBay have vintage yarns for sale and you may come across an actual Enterprise ball of yarn for your project! Check out the VTNS listings here.

Enjoy!
