Oversized Crochet Candy Corn-Inspired Potholder

Hi friends,

Sometimes you just need a simple, back to basics project to work on. And that’s just what the Oversized Crochet Candy Corn-Inspired Potholder is! It’s stitched up in single crochet and can work as a potholder as well as a hotpad to protect your counter or table from a hot dish. It’s a great beginner project!

I used I Love This Cotton yarn in Curry, Glowing, and White with an F/3.75 crochet hook to stitch up my potholders. I chose colors to mimic candy corn since it’s the season 😉 but of course you can make your potholders in any color combo or even just one color. Just be sure to use 100% cotton yarn so it can withstand the heat.

You can find the easy pattern below along with a link to a free PDF if you want to print it. You can also click the Pinterest button below to save it to your crochet board.
