Morning, Noon 'N Nite Pot Holder Patterns

Any of these holder sets can be made from a ball of White Enterprise Yarn and approximately 50 yds. of color matching the kitchen decorations.

These Clocks, each with hands set at different hours, make a holder for each meal of the day. Hang the set on a rack like that for the poppy pattern—for a lovely gift. As pictured, the set has two with White faces; the other is colored.

Crochet firmly to get a heavy holder. Diameter 5¾ to 6 in.
The directions are for White faces—for the colored face reverse colors.

ROUND 2: 9 sc in ring. Work around center.
ROUND 3: 2 sc in each st around (20 sc).
