Make your kitchen ready for the Holidays with this mini-C2C crochet **Nordic Christmas Potholder**.

Choose your favorite cotton yarn in lively Christmas colors and enjoy making this cute Nordic-style snowflake potholder for the holidays.

## Is C2C good enough for Potholders?

You know that I am a big fan of kitchen decor and I like crocheting **potholders that are actually useful** in the kitchen.

I really won’t make anything that has gaps and holes in it.

However, as you know, corner to corner (C2C) crochet can be quite loose and have some gaps in between the blocks.

So, where’s the deal? Is this just a decorating potholder? Well, no, it’s not!

To make sure that this potholder would be nice and compact, I used a couple of **tricks**:

- I used the
**mini C2C stitch**instead of the regular C2C. This means that each block is worked with half double crochet stitches instead of double crochet. - To make sure that the potholder won’t have any holes or gaps between the mini-C2C blocks, I only used a
**ch-1**to start working the next set of half double crochet stitches. **Go down in hook size!**If you see that your stitches are too loose, just try a smaller hook.

## Are you New TO MINI-C2C CROCHET?

If you’re new to C2C crochet, I have a couple of tutorials (+videos!) that can help you with:

- Learning the basics on how to crochet the mini-C2C stitch;
- How to change colors and carry yarn in mini-C2C.
