    I love my cotton yarn (Lily Sugar ‘n Cream) for my potholders. I use a “single crochet thermal stitch” so it is basically doubly thick. That way, it is as thick as any potholder, and being cotton, doesn’t conduct heat. I don’t have to worry about burning my fingers as there are no open spaces when I use this stitch. I’ve made about a dozen in multiple colors and use them ALL the time! What I learned is you want a heavier weight yarn (at least worsted weight) and a smaller hook, so your stitches will be tighter and have even less space, but will give you the firmness needed for a potholder. They keep getting used for hot things (and disappearing!), so I just keep making more of them!

    How can I* get a hard copy of the American Flag from Ravelry. I have signed on to Ravelry, but can not get a hard copy of the patriotic flag. Thank Sybwood73@aol.

      You will have to contact the designer through Ravelry if you want it. I don’t have anything to do with Ravelry or a connection to make that happen. 🙂 There is a way to contact the individuals through Ravelry.
