How to make Christmas crochet pot holders: Free Pattern!

Christmas crochet pot holders? Why not! A nice accessory and a fast and fun gift idea!

The Nordic style crochet “Nordic Xmas” potholders were made for us by a passionate designer and maker who is very popular on Instagram: Mara Fornasier.

The potholders are made in Double Crochet (US Terms), with a variant of the Tapestry Crochet technique. Traditionally it’s worked in the round, now we use work it flat, forth, and back, using two colors, as shown in this video.


Cosa serve per realizzare le presine ad uncinetto “Nordic Xmas”?

  1. Prato Cotton yarn, (a 100% cotton yarn, eco-friendly and recycled, one, of whose origin we wrote in this post!) in two colors: Ecru and Red. You can choose your favorite color combo from the 20 colors available to date!
  2. 5 mm (H8 US) crochet hook (you find our Maplewood crochet hooks here) – However, we recommend that you try it because a smaller caliber could be fine too
  3. Scissors 
  4. Sewing needle

Which stitches are used?

The pattern level is intermediate, the Tapestry Crochet technique is simple, but you need a little practice, and just know the basic stitches!
