I have made a few of these hexagon potholders, I really like them, they look good. I have gotten a few emails asking me how I make them, I've tried to explain it but I'm not sure if I ever get it written out right. So, I decided to take some pictures of the process and hopefully it will make sense. Also, I did not come up with this potholder, I've seen many potholders made like this out there.
First, you need to make 8 of these hexagons, you can use any hexagon pattern you want, that's just the one I use. I just make the centers first and then join them as I go, you could make the hexagons and join with slip stitch, sc, whip stitch, etc, if you wanted to. Next you want to join 4 of the hexagons into a circle.
After this, you join another hexagon to one of the "corners", the hexagon will fold in half and just fit there.
And then, you want to do the same on the other side. This one can be a bit trickier to join but it can be done!
Do exactly the same for the other end of the potholder. Add a chain 11 to any of the corners for the hanger if you want one.
I hope that wasn't too hard to follow! If there's something written strangely, let me know and I'll try better to explain it.
