Striped Crochet Christmas Potholders — A Free Crochet Pattern Is Available for This Design.

Want to make potholders like these? If so, you’ll use two interesting techniques to stitch them:

  • Tunisian crochet, and
  • Cross stitch on crochet.

These techniques complement each other beautifully.


How they work together: Instead of buying aida fabric, like cross stitchers often do, you crochet the fabric you’ll use to cross stitch on top of. The fabric you’ll crochet is basically a small, striped, potholder-sized square, worked in afghan stitch. Then you use your crochet stitches as the guidelines for placing the cross stitch.


To finish, you create a solid-colored back in afghan stitch, then join the two pieces together using a simple edging.
