Pot Holder in Acrylic? Not my best decision!

May have made a bit of a crochet ‘boob’!  Found this lovely pattern via Pinterest for a pot holder on Miss Abigail’s Hope Chest so I spent the afternoon hooking away.
But then it dawned on me that the chunky yarn was acrylic and would this melt when you put something hot on it?  Oh dear, we shall find out soon enough.  Might have to start again in cotton or wool – duh!
Happy Monday everyone!

  1. You can take items off the stove or out of the oven with acrylic or you can put a hot tea pot on it. Sometimes a really hot pot will cause a slight melt but I have used acrylic for many years for my pot holders and hot pads.
