This is my favorite type of pattern, one that works up super quick and is also super easy! The Farmhouse Pot Holder works up in less than 30 minutes, uses minimal supplies, and is beginner friendly! These are perfect for gifts, selling at markets or online, or just making for your own home! They’re not only beautiful with the fun textured design, but they’re also practical and useful around the kitchen!

The Farmhouse Pot Holder uses 2 strands of 100% Cotton held together. This will create a thick cloth perfect for hot dishes! The finished size is approximately 7″ x 7″ but the pattern can easily be adjusted for any size!

If you plan on selling your pot holders, either in person, at craft markets, or online, check out these wrap labels I created! These are the perfect way to display your product while giving your customer all the information they need about it! Simply download the digital file, print onto light cardstock paper, cut, and wrap around your pot holder! I use a small piece of double sided tape to secure my labels and it makes your product look WAY more professional!

Find these wrap labels in my Etsy shop! The Potholder label is included in the Dining Set bundle, and I also have a Bath Set and Dish Set for cloths and towels!

  • This pattern uses the Even Moss Stitch. The Even Moss Stitch is created by working a SL ST into the first ST, then a HDC in the next. Repeat until the end of the row. For the next row you will repeat the same pattern, working the SL ST into the previous SL ST and the HDC into the previous HDC. This will create a beautifully textured piece.
  • Work SL STs loosely especially the first and last one of each row to ensure your piece doesn’t cinch at the ends.
  • Size adjustments can easily be made by making your starting CH longer or shorter. Be sure to always CH an even number.
  • Beginning chains do not count as stitches throughout the whole pattern.
  • The number in parenthesis at the end of each round represents the total number of stitches to be worked in each round.
  • Repeat instructions between asterisks (*) until the end of each round

  • You will hold 2 strands together and will need a total of 1.75 oz / 90 yards
