Crochet Heart Pot Holder Pattern

Happy February! Today, I’m sharing a new heart pattern just in time for Valentine’s Day! If you haven’t checked out the Heart Coasters from last week, make sure you do! Both these patterns are quick, easy, and use minimal yarn!

This heart shaped pot holder uses 2 strands of cotton held together, making it thick and durable! It’ll work perfect for hot dishes or just looking cute in the kitchen. Try using different colors or different materials for the hanging loop!

Let’s grab our supplies & get making!
