Lattice Pot Holder Pattern

Lattice is one of those interesting combinations of simple stitches with the effect obtained by sewing two pieces of crochet together. The two tone holders shown are done as a single piece • the simple instructions may be enlarged for rugs, table mats, chair seats, etc. Lattice forms an air space beneath hot dishes and pans to protect the table • makes a pretty effect in any color combination.

MATERIALS: A ball of White and 50 yds. of color will make a set of 3.

BACKGROUND: With White, ch 23, sk last 3 sts, dc in 20 sts.
ROW 2: Ch 3, turn, dc through both loops of each dc of last row. Drop White, but do not cut.
LATTICE: 1st COL. ROW: Join color to other half of first st of 23 ch (at base of first row of dc), (ch 5, sc in other half of next 4th st of original ch) 5 times.
2nd COL. ROW: Ch 7, turn, sc in center of last 5 ch loop, (ch 5, sc in next loop) 4 times, ch 2, a tr down into same st where first color row started.
3rd COL. ROW: Sl st through front loop of end White dc. Turn, (ch 5, sk next 3 dc, insert hook through back loop of next dc and under color 5 ch loop, catch thread and pull through for a sc) 5 times.
