Since I bought 6 colors of cotton and wanted to make 6 potholders each of which requires two sides, I made 12 "halves," 2 in each of the 6 colors. Now comes the fun part: assembly! I don't want any two to be the same so I'm going to randomly pick a front and back and then use a third color for the details and to crochet the two sides together . . . stay tuned to see how they turn out!
