Crochet Hen Potholder

Cluck!  Cluck!
These little potholders are what I've been working on lately.  
I put down my knitting needles for a while and reached for my crochet hook instead.  I wanted something quick and fun to do and found this whimsical chicken potholder pattern on Ravelry.  
  There's always been a soft spot in my heart for chickens.  I've never had any in real life but I look forward to the day when I can have some.  I do lean towards to the country farmhouse decor in my kitchen so these little hens will fit right in.
I ended up making two of them....
  ......Why stop at just one?  
The tan one on the left is fuller and rounder because I used Peaches and Cream cotton yarn on it as opposed to the white one on the right where I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton yarn.  
I don't mind the difference at all.  
I rather like how they each took on a personality all their own. 
If you haven't already, I hope you try this pattern someday.  
I think you'd really enjoy it.  
Doesn't every kitchen need one of these?

It's been brought to my attention that this pattern is no longer offered on Ravelry.  I did however find it for sale on Etsy.  Link here: Crochet Chicken Potholder Pattern
I also found this video on Youtube.  I'm not sure it's the same hen but it's at least very similar.

  14. Hi Beca, wow these chicken pot holders are just adorable and I love them. You are constantly amazing me with what you create. You always think of something fun to crochet. Have a wonderful weekend.

  15. These pot holders are delightful. It is good to know that they are not identical, when I make anything I always change something, it could be a motif or a colour but I like things to be individual. x

  16. OMG! They are so adorable! One of my coworkers has chickens and I keep trying to get her to let me borrow them for a couple days to take care of the bugs in my garden. LOL!

  17. I love this pattern! Going to save and try that for sure!
    My chickens were killed by a marten not long ago, but I'm still found of them...
    Thanks for the tip!
