Work sc around the part from point A to point E. Make 2sc in 1 loop of points A, B, C, D & E.

Change to brown colour yarn, work sc around the part once again.
Do not cut the yarn end just yet!


Crochet a loop to go on your kitchen hook: ch 12, finish off with one sl st, fasten off. Continue working tight sc around potholder’s loop. Bind off, do not cut the yarn end. 

Make a few sl st up to point F.

Make sl st from pint F to point C. Ensure that the yarn you are working with is on the wrong side of the part, insert the crochet hook into the part, wrap the yarn over the hook, pull it put and through the loop on the hook. Repeat the process up to point C.



Bind off, cut off the yarn, hide the end.

Take a piece of paper and draw some circles of various sizes. Cut them out to use as stencils. Pin then to the potholder in the order you wish. Embroider the circles using brown colour yarn and the technique described above. Please see the pictures for guidance.
