Comments: This multicolored potholder is crocheted in Italian flag colors, hence the name; of course, you can use whatever combination you like!
TIP: If you want to use effectively this item as potholder, I suggest you to crochet a back piece of the same dimensions, using a unique color and all dc rows, put a folding tissue between the two pieces, and join them with a sc junction (sc inserting hook in both pieces all around it).
Size : 19 x 18 cm = 7.5 x 7 inches
Material : Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn ( we call it "Poor Cotton", but a yarn like "Sugar&Cream should be good), color A= Red, B=Green, C=White. Hook no.4 (US=G/6)
Stitches :ch, sl st, sc, dc
Start with A, do 44 ch.
1. sc in 2nd ch and in every other ch; 2 ch, turn =>43 sc
2. 3 dc, *1 ch, sk a st, 3 dc* ; Repeat all the row , joining B at the last dc ; do not cut A , leave A thread here; 2 ch, turn =>33 dc.
3.*3 dc worked in ch sp, 1 ch* ; Repeat all the row , joining C at the last dc ; do not cut B , leave B thread here; 2 ch, turn.
4.*3 dc worked 2nd dc of 3-dc grp in row 2, 1 ch* ; Repeat all the row , joining A at the last dc (tale the thread left at Row 2) ; leave C thread here; 2 ch, turn.
5-25.Repeat ever Row 4 , changing color at ea Row (at the end of each Row leave the color just used without cutting it, take it again 2 Rows after)
At Row 23, cut A and fix it; at Row 24 cut B and fix it. At the end of Row 25, do not cut C, but work border as following:
a) With C, sc in ea st and sc in ea sp. In the first corner, (sc, 8 ch, sc) in corner sc; work scs evenly on vertical sides and on base chs, making 3 scs in ea of remaining three corners.Join B in last sc, cut C.
b) sc in ea sc all around, 3 sc in simple corners, sc in ea ch of the hole. Cut B, weave in all ends.
