Let’s talk about the yarn you’ll need for this pattern, because it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! Since this pattern is intended to be used for hot items, you need to use yarn that is 100% cotton. No acrylic, polyester, or any other synthetic or animal-derived yarn will work. Cotton won’t melt, which is important when using this Tortilla Warmer as a potholder. Also, please use at least a medium-sized cotton yarn. A thin fingering yarn will not work, it’ll be too thin and you could burn yourself if using this as a potholder.

Another important note, when using this as a potholder, use the potholder folded in half (not as a glove/oven mitt) to ensure you have enough fabric between your hand and the hot item. Please use caution when handling hot items. OK, that was my PSA, let’s get to crocheting!

What you’ll need:

Crochet addict, bibliophile, and cooking enthusiast. If I'm not sleeping, I'm probably making something while reading (because why do one thing at a time, when you can do two?)

Drawing, painting, and coloring are some of my favorite things to do, so I own a ridiculous amount of art supplies & coloring books. I also enjoy making soap, and even owned a soap shop in Albuquerque for a few years.

Other than that, I've owned a few businesses and have moved cross-country a few times. I play the flute and piccolo, and love to study languages in my free time. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and French, and I speak a little German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Korean. I'm a writer, though you wouldn't know it by the quality of my bio, but I write fiction and fantasy stories. My first novel will be completed soon, and I have a second one in the works.

Someday, I will travel the world with the person I love. We will see and experience all the magic the world has to offer together, and it will be amazing.
