Free Crochet Pattern: Heart Pot Holder

(Shown in Hobby Lobby's I Love this Cotton! in Pink, Eastern Nova & Amethyst) 

Happy February! 
Last week I shared a simple heart scrubby pattern and today I have a matching pot holder to share with you. You can find the scrubby pattern here: Scrubby Heart. The patterns are very similar but for this pattern you will be crocheting 2 hearts and then you will hold them together and single crochet around the edge to make them one. I tried a couple different yarns for this pattern when testing and I suggest a softer cotton yarn like I love this Cotton from Hobby Lobby or the Mainstays 100% Cotton Yarn from Walmart. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Row 16: 2 hdc in first, hdc in 27, 2 hdc in last. Ch 2, turn. (31)

After you have turned your piece over count from right to the left and place a stitch marker in the 17th stitch. You should have 14 stitches to the left of the marker and 16 to the right. Leave stitch marker in place, you will be coming back to this stitch later.


Row 17: Hdc2tog, hdc in 11, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (13)
Row 18: Hdc in 11, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (12)
Row 19: Hdc2tog, hdc in 10. Ch 2, turn.(11)
Row 20: Hdc2tog, hdc in 7, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (9)
Row 21: Hdc2tog, hdc in 7. Ch 2, turn. (8)
Row 22: Hdc2tog, hdc in 4, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (6)
Row 23: Hdc2tog across. Do not turn. (3)
Fasten off. 

Join yarn with a ss to the stitch you placed a stitch marker in. You can now remove the stitch marker.
You will have 1 stitch un-worked to the right of where the stitch marker was.


Row 24: Ch 1, hdc2tog, hdc in 11, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (13)
Row 25: Hdc2tog, hdc in 11. Ch 2, turn. (12)
Row 26: Hdc in 10, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (11)
Row 27: Hdc2tog, hdc in 7, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (9)
Row 28: Hdc in 7, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (8)
Row 29: Hdc2tog, hdc in 4, hdc2tog. Ch 2, turn. (6)
Row 30: Hdc2tog across. (3)

If this is the first heart: Fasten off and set the finished heart aside. Make a 2nd heart using the same pattern above.

If this is the second heart: Do not fasten off just yet. Continue on with the directions below.

Sew all ends in now except for the yarn you are working with. I like to sew them all in on one side of the heart and then have those sides facing each other. This way the ends are on the inside of the pot holder.

Hold the two hearts together and re-grab your yarn. Ch 1, ss through both hearts, ch 9, ss into the same space to form a ring. (see photos below)


Ch 1, turn, 15 sc in ring. Ss into the same space you made your ch 9 in. Work 2 sc into the very next stitch to the left, sc in next, 2 sc in next. (see photos below)


Continue to sc around the entire edge making sure to work through both hearts. When you reach the next 3 open stitches at the top of the next hump work 2 sc in the first stitch, sc in next, 2 sc in next. Continue to sc around. 

At the bottom tip of the heart work 3 sc.

Ss to join when you are back around to the ring. 


Fasten off. Sew in end.

Using edge color:
Ss so join in any space. *Ch 2, ss in next* repeat from *to* around. Join. Fasten off and sew in ends.
