Potholder Installation

by Kate on April 28, 2012

I promised that once the potholders were done and up on the wall at Calico & Ivy that I would post a pic but to get the full effect, you need to see it in the flesh.


If you are in Sydney, pop in and take a look – Sarah and I are both thrilled with our handiwork…even if we do say so ourselves!

Sarah and I made these potholders using various yarns (available in store) and the patterns came from a variety of sources; japanese craft books, stitch dictionaries and blogs.

So, what are you waiting for?? Grab a hook and some yarn and make your own pretty wall!

Hope you all have a happy weekend!

Just stunning! They look so beautiful hung on the wall like this – I’m feeling terribly inspired!

These are lovely!! I make potholders for a store in California. I would love to see the patterns. Thanks for sharing!

They look amazing!!!!!!
Gorgeous work you too.

I have a whole pile that came off the wall and went into a drawer when we got home from the trip. They were all cobwebby and dusty. After seeing yours I’m starting to think they might be ready to make an appearance again.

I think the circle one dead centre at the top is my favourite, but its very hard to choose, beautiful!

Absolutely lovely. Too bad I can’t just pop over to Sydney. Pretty long flight. :-)

wow….i wandered into a craftshop today in a haze of new baby sleep deprivation asking about how to read crochet patterns….wanting to buy patterns and make beautiful things like your pot holders. Alas…i couldnt communicate my wish for lack of energy/brain capacity. So, meanwhile, i will drool over your creations instead.

Wow they all look so cool together! But my favorite is still your big chrysanthemum one.

Absolutely beautiful! The potholders are just as effective as a wall of china plates. Just lovely! Best wishes, Tammy
