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
