Branching out

Well, here they are!  On the  right is a picture of the smaller of the two I made, the other one is considerable larger and looked odd in the photo I took. They don’t look all that really great in these pictures, sorry, I’ll get some better ones taken another time. This is only the second time I made potholders, ever, so I was pretty excited with how they turned out. Although, they look a little “hour glass” like in person, as the husband commented. Bugger. Is that normal with potholders? Does anyone know? Maybe I need to check my tension. Ah, I’m proud of the result either way.

Slip stitch into second chain from the hook, hdc into next st, *slip st, hdc, slip st, hdc* repeat from * to * all the way across the chain, be sure to end with a hdc.

Row 2: Chain 1, slip st into first st, hdc into next, repeat from * to * again.

Repeat row 2 until desired length.

So easy, right?

I can’t wait to try it out on a garment or something. 😀
