  1. Hi there, I don’t understand what you mean by “Single crochet in back of both the stitch on the current row and the row directly below” can you explain or perhaps provide some pictures? Thanks!

    • Hi Deb, thanks for your comment. At this time we only have the pattern, but we’ve had such a overwhelmingly positive reaction to it that a video tutorial is in the works. Stay tuned for that!

  2. I’ve loved making these potholders for a few years now… I’m curious what yarn you used? It’s very pretty.
