This adorable Uncle Sam Pot holder works up quickly in scrap amounts of yarn with simple basic crochet stitches.
The Uncle Sam Americana themed hot pad is worked from the top down starting with the main body of the hat worked in turned rows to create the stripes. Working rows of simple stitches worked from larger to smaller stitches creates a hat that naturally gets smaller on one end.
Working on the smaller end of the hat body you will crochet the brim and then the beard creating an opening for the gnome’s nose in the center of the beard.
Then you will crochet your nose, moustache pieces and stars separately. I have a complete photo and video tutorial to help you with the stars if needed. Then all of the pieces are assembled and sewn together. So quick and easy!
