Tyyne-potholder


Tyyne was the name of my grandmother and she taught me this potholder pattern when I was a teenager. I haven´t seen this pattern anywhere else and I happen to love it. As I loved my granny very much.

I have to thank Flia for this English version. Without her help it wouldn´t have been done, at least not as quickly. 

Please inform me if you have any problems with the pattern. Please leave a comment if you make one, so I can take a look at it. Have fun!

Tyyne potholder


Any 100% cotton dk yarn in two matching colours 100 - 150 grams and a hook to match (2,0 mm - 3,0mm).

With colour A (the darker one in the pictures)
Row 1: chain 54, or until you get the desired length + 10
Row 2: (all rows must start with the ch 1 hole and end with 3 dc)
chain 4, dc in the next 3 ch, (ch 1, dc in the next 3 ch) repeat (-) to your desired width, ending the row with 3 dc.
Row 3: ch 4, (3 dc in the next chloop of previous row, ch 1), repeat (-) ending the row with 3 dc.
Repeat row 3 until you’ve reached the desired length. For an equal sided square make 2 rows more than the double of dc groups.


Change to colour B (the lighter colour in the pictures).
Row 1: Ch 4, 3 dc in the chloop of previous row.
Row 2: Chain 2 (this ise the start of row two)


Lay down the work on a table, the row you just made facing you. Fold this row, down underneath the last row of colour A.




Make the ch from row 1 (color B) visible through the hole of the colour A square. (the last picture above).
Dc 3 in that chain, working through the hole.
Row 2 continues: Ch 1, dc 3 in the next chloop of colour B, through the next hole of colour A until the end of the row.
Row 3: Ch 2, dc 3 in the next hole of colour A, (ch 1, dc 3 in the next hole of colour A), repeat (-)
Continue as in row 3 until you’ve filled all the holes of the colour A square. Do not cut.

Suggestion for edging:
Continue with the same yarn from the corner: (ch 3, dc 3 in the same st), repeat(-), join to the edge start with a sl st . Do not cut.

Hanger: ch 40, attach with a sl st either to the ch of the row below or to the last ch of the ch40), turn and fill up the ring with sc´s, push the sc together so the ring becomes stiff. Cut.

Weave in ends.

I too want to that you and Flia for making this lovely potholder in English. I have never seen anything like it either. Your grandmother must have been very special. I think crafting connects us all.

Thanks

Barbara

Hey Tintti!

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing and unique pattern! I'm so glad that people are so generous, and that those traditional patterns won't be forgotten!

I've made a pair of those potholders and blogged about it today (with a link-back to you):

Love your pattern and gave it a try. I had some problems with the second row of the new color, but everything is fine. I read the text again, looked at your pictures and got it.
Easy and beautiful!
Thank you for sharing.
Hugs Dörte

I noticed that you added an Edit to the Finnish instructions that didn't translate well when I used the auto translate on my computer and I'm really struggling on the color change -- any chance that Edit instruction on the Finnish translation will help with the pattern in English or is it possible to upload a video of the first row of the color change?
