Scallop Potholder

Still in the mood for a bit of crocheting, I worked up this pretty potholder. It's sturdy enough to use as a trivet too. This is another one from the Ultimate Book of Pot Holders from Annie's Attic. I've seen a lot of variations on this pattern and I was curious to see how those petals worked up.

I made some chocolate chip macaroons today to take to a Final Four party tonight, but I didn't have the heart to use the new potholder, at least not yet. Too soon after the finish to see it covered in chocolate stains!

Very pretty potholder! I don't blame you for not wanting to use it yet. It's so pretty and it's the law of averages that something would get on it. I would definitely want to enjoy it for a little bit!

I've crocheted in the past but never ran across this pattern. It's really cute! I love the row of white on the outside. I can understand why you don't what chocolate all over it!
