Peppermint Swirl Pot Holder


This Cute crochet Pot Holder/ Dish cloth works up super fast, and is easy to make if you can do basic color changes and can crochet a circle.

Materials:
·       Less than 1 ball of red cotton yarn, less than one ball of white cotton yarn
·       H (5.00 mm) crochet Hook
·       Yarn needle and scissors

Stitches/Abbreviations
·       Chain: Ch
·       Double Crochet: DC
·       Two double crochet in 1 stitch: DC2
·       Slip stitch: SL

Notes:
·       Ch 2 at beginning of round does not count as a stitch;
·       Carry the color not in use through the work, it will be on the back and not really visible
·       Change colors in rounds by picking up the carried color on the last yarn over of the stitch before the new color start (see plenty of videos on color changes mid-row on YouTube).  
·       Stitch counts at end of each round in parentheses
·       To get swirl pattern the colors should be offset by 1 (see chart photo).
