Red Bird in the Snow Potholder - New Pattern in Shop




I am not normally a fan of snow, but after this long, hot summer I am actually looking forward to it a little bit (not a lot, but a little bit).  :)  We have lots of pine trees around our house and there is nothing prettier than seeing a beautiful red cardinal sitting on a snow-filled branch.  So that was my inspiration when I came up with this sweet little red bird, working on it in 90+ degree temps, while daydreaming about the upcoming cooler weather.  :)

The front piece of the potholder is worked in single crochet by following a color chart.  The beak is crocheted separately, then stitched on, and the eye is a small black button.  The snowflakes are small white beads stitched randomly around. The back piece is done single crochet, then the two pieces are stitched together for double thickness.

The finished size is 9 1/4" wide x 8 1/2" high (not including the ring at the top)

Pattern is available in my etsy shop or as a download thru Ravelry by clicking here

Such a cute pattern. I don't know how you can create the design right into the stitching. Hope you are having a great week. Best wishes, Tammy
