Here you will see a Picture of my favorite Potholder to make. It's really easy to make once you get the knack of it. The picture is not the greatest due to the background I choose, which is my kitchen counter. The directions are so easy I feel because they have pictures & a good instructions for even a beginner crocheter. Here's a link to the pattern. http://www.mielkesfarm.com/diagonal_hotpad.
