Tutti Fruiti Pot holders

Fun and fruity crochet potholders or coasters. Free crochet pattern for summer.

Mmm, bright and zesty and full of the feeling of summer. These Tutti Frutti pot holders come in orange, lemon and watermelon ‘flavors’.

In this tutorial, you’ve learned how to crochet a fruit-inspired potholder with a felt back. Change the colours and use some black accent yarn to create the look of seeds for a watermelon potholder, or make another one in yellow, for a lemon potholder!

Materials needed:

  • Yarn (we recommend Drops Paris cotton)
  • Crochet hook (4mm)
  • Darning needle for sewing in the ends
  • Felt
  • Sewing needle and thread
  • Scissors

Although not called for in the pattern, we suggest including a layer of Insul Bright between the crochet and the felt for extra heat protection. You could also make these in a smaller size and use them as coasters. Would look great on the table outdoors with a jug of fresh lemonade.
