Help for Mauritius
I originally made these pot holders to sell and help raise funds to clear up the terrible oil spill in the beautiful island nation of Mauritius. Now I am offering this pattern for free, in the hope that you too might make a few and sell them to help raise funds for this worthy cause. Please go to the end of this post for places to donate.
This double thickness pot holder is made from 4ply/fingering weight yarn. You should use a slightly smaller hook than you would usually use to ensure a firm and solid fabric. I have used scrap sock yarn, left over from other projects. I recommend natural, plant based fibers. When acrylic gets hot and melts it can be quite dangerous.
