I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Spring is the right time of year to finally make something for your home.  

Just after Easter, when there were lots of bunnies, eggs and Easter decorations, and a bit before the summer season and all the big summer tees and halter tops plans, finally you can have a bit of fun with quick home accessories. Thick potholders (also sometimes called as trivets or hotpads) will be functional, practical and can give an extra spin to your kitchen. Even better, they will  will be a great idea for a gift as well. Along those same lines, the patterns we show here are also quite easy, quick to make and highly customizable. Thus, each one of these can truly be your own.

Sometimes texture is where it’s at! A ribbed potholder is made in one color, which underlines the intriguing stitches and gives your project a classy look. It’s also great for accessorizing, because you choose the one, right color for your decor.

While on the topic of monochrome, here is another stunner. In particular, I think that the combination of the crocheted loop and seam is super attractive. Also, the color palette shown is vibrant and fun, and perfect for spring.
