This is a lovely no pattern, pattern. (Basically a pattern you kind of can figure out on your own with little direction.) I like this pattern because the creator, Cath at my little kitchen blog, learned to crochet using this pattern which is pretty cool. You can read more about that and find the sort of pattern on her blog here.
I used my own colors. When I got to around the 9th row, I decided to change from doing little clusters of 2 dc, to just doing a single dc all around, still keeping the 2dc, ch1, 2dc in the corners to maintain the shape. Also, Cathy's pattern uses 4 dc in the corners with no chain.
I made mine double-sided to give it more integrity as a potholder, though I wouldn't use it for this purpose. I love to cook but hate to get burned so I use and oven mitt AND a potholder! I will do this again but this time as a dishcloth so I don't have to crochet two and then attach together. I'm thinking of experimenting with some more of the vintage potholder patterns I have found and transforming them into dish or wash cloths by omitting the second side. I may also try doing one side but crocheting two strands together.
So here is a pic of both sides. Hope you lie it and give it a try. It is quick and easy to make.
