Hello lovelies! I was delighted to notice that I have already 300 subscribers! Wohaa! Thank you so much <3 This episode was hard to record. After last episode I have not been crocheting, in three weeks!! It feels terrible!  Please go and see the vlog and if you have any tips how to manage through this time, I am more than happy to receive those!

This is the 5th square of the project. Designer is Kimberley from the Lakeside Loops -blog. The free pattern can be found from here .

The pattern and the picture of the finished piece should be ready already in the next morning.  As you probably already guess, I had to take up this "challenge". After a moment of brainstorming with my husband and less than an hour of  the contact, I was hooking the pot holder.  The pattern was supposed to be very easy and simple, and I decided to start with a square made of double crochet stitches. The square is then folded in an envelope style, and the sides are joined together with single crochet stitches. The edges of the piece are also neaten
