Inside: The Zig Zag Twill Potholder full pattern including written instructions, link to weving chart and full tutorial videos for both right and left handed weavers.
I’ve been having a blast weaving these colorful potholders.
My latest one is the Zig Zag Twill Potholder. This one uses a fun, two color design that resembles a classic ripple crochet design. These hot pads are fully reversible and take just minutes to weave.
This pattern contains written instructions and links to fully-captioned tutorial videos showing the entire project for both right and left handed weavers.
