This pinwheel pot holder measures about 7" in diameter.

Materials: One skein all-purpose yarn and size F (#4) crochet hook.

Abbreviations: Sc (single crochet); ch (chain); sl st (slip stitch); rnd (round).

Pattern: To begin, ch 4, join with sl st to form a ring.

Rnd 1: Make 12 sc in ring.

Rnd 2: Sc in each sc around, increasing 2 sc in every second st.

Rnd 3: Sc in each sc around, increase 2 sc in every third st.

Rnd 4: Sc in each sc around, increase 2 sc in every 4th st.

Continue working sc around until 11 rounds are completed or for desired number of rnds, depending on size, increasing in same manner. Finish with a rnd of sl st for an finished look edge; do not cut thread.

For a ring, ch 10, sl st in first ch and then fill ring with sc. Fasten and cut thread.

For double thickness, make two pinwheels as above and crochet them together.

This could become a rug by working continuous rnds of sc and increases, probably using a little heavier yarn and larger size hook.
