I used to be big on christmas decoration, mostly I think because the kids were little and these celebrations mean so much to them. Once they grew up and moved on, I am less enthused at the prospect of hauling out decor that will only be up for a few days, maybe weeks and would then have to be taken down again.

However, designing xmas themed potholders has reignited my interest in the age old traditions of the season.

Currently (January 2022) I have 3 sets of xmas themed potholder designs available. Each design can be made in any colourway. You could have a different set in each of your favorite xmas colors.

You should ideally be using 100% cotton yarns for these types of projects as cotton can withstand the heat generated from pots and plates.

Yarn usage was quite simple:

  • 2 balls of the main colour plus 1 contrasting colour will get you a set of potholders

Catania yarns by Schachenmayer is my yarn of choice. Its a 4ply (sport) weight mercerized 100% cotton yarn and is available in a multitude of colors and shades.

In South Africa this yarn is sold by Arthur Bales in Johannesburg and they courier nationwide: 011 888 2401

It is also available from Wool Warehouse in the UK. They ship worldwide.

The patterns for the potholder sets can be found in my Ravelry store: Candy Cane & Xmas Stocking Silver Bell & Xmas Bauble Xmas Tree & Bauble
