Row 2. *3 dc in loop, ch 2*. Repeat from * to * three more times. Join ends to complete round.

Row 3. Turn pot holder over. In ch 2 space of row two make *3 dc, 2 ch, 3 dc, 1 ch.* In next ch 2 space make 3 dc, ch 9, sl st to eighth ch from hook to form hanging loop, 3 dc, ch 1. Repeat from * to * in the remaining two ch 2 spaces. Join ends to complete round and fasten off.


Row 1. Ch 24

Row 2. 2 dc in the 4th ch from hook, *sk 1 ch st, then 2 dc in the next ch st*. Repeat from * to * across row to last st, then 1 dc, ch 2 and turn.
