Snowy Winter Potholder – [Free] Tapestry Crochet Pattern

This tapestry crochet Snowy Winter Potholder is the perfect project to celebrate the cold season with a cozy kitchen decor project!

This pattern is part of the “A Year of Potholders” collection.

Again, as I did for the potholders of the Farmhouse Collection, I decided to use tapestry crochet to create a thick and solid hot pad that will make baking for the Holidays extra fun and safe.

A Year of Potholders

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know my love for crochet potholders and tapestry crochet!

So, I hope you’ll enjoy my new collection of tapestry crochet potholders for 2022!

The idea is to share a new tapestry crochet potholder every month for the entire year, and every potholder has a different theme inspired by that month.

The Snowy Winter Potholder is actually the potholder that I designed for the month of January, but I’m releasing it early together with the Holly Christmas Potholder (December) to kick start the new collection!

Over the course of 2022, I’ll be releasing all the patterns as the new months arrive.

But in the meantime, you can take a look at the entire collection and already grab the eBook with all the patterns HERE!

Just keep in mind that while in the video I do consider the initial ch-1 as my first st, for this pattern, the first chain does NOT count as a stitch!

22.5 sc for 21 rows in 4” (10 cm) worked in tapestry crochet.

Pattern Notes

  • The pattern is written in 2 sections. The Potholder is worked in rows, the Border in rounds.
  • The potholder is worked entirely in sc.
  • If the pattern says “(A) 5”, it means that you need to sc 1 in each of next 5 sts using color A.
  • At the end of each row, ch 1 and turn.
  • The initial ch 1 does NOT count as a st.
  • All odd-numbered rows are crocheted on the right side. All even-numbered rows are crocheted on the wrong side.
  • […] – Repeat the instructions within brackets for the indicated number of times.
  • With the exception of the border, the stitch count is always 34 sts.
  • The color chart of the potholder can be found in the PDF pattern.
