Free Open-face Sandwich Potholder Crochet Pattern

Sandwich_2

I just love potholders that look like food. It’s so nerdy to have kitchen linens that look like edibles, don’t you think? I couldn’t resist the idea for this crochet potholder. This free crochet pattern resembles a piece of bread with lettuce and tomato on top. You could even add a slice of cheese below the lettuce if you want the potholder to have extra cushion. Have fun!
