How to do a Striped Pattern Potholder

I’m a sucker for stripes so I love the looks of this classic potholder pattern. Use white and a color as we have here or try two bright shades for a different look. Either way this is a simple pattern that gives a complex look, a fantastic project for beginners and experienced weavers alike.

Difficulty level: Easy
Time required: 10 minutes

Things you’ll need:
Two colors of cotton loops
Potholder loom and hook

Things to do:
1. Lay out the warp, the up and down direction of your loom, in the following pattern. ABABABABABABAB Using every other peg on a loom with more pegs makes weaving easier for beginners, this produces a smaller potholder but the pattern still works.

2. Weave the weft, the side to side direction of your loom, in the same pattern.

3. Using your hook, slip two loops off the loop and onto the hook. Pull the bottom loop up over the top loop and over the end of the hook.

4. Leaving the loop on, slip the next loop onto the hook and again pull the lower loop up and over the end of the hook. Repeat until you have reached the last loop. Pull firmly through to create the hanging loop.
