Charming Crocheted Watermelon Potholder

Just in time for the lazy days of summer, here’s a crocheted potholder that evokes a favorite summertime treat. The deep pink, white, and dark green yarn do a very effective job of representing the watermelon’s flesh, rind, and skin.

The seeds were embroidered onto the crocheted watermelon using black yarn.

And for those who prefer their watermelon without seeds, the reverse side offers a seedless option.

The potholder seems to have been crocheted in a circle and then folded in half to resemble a watermelon slice just ready for tasting. Here’s a closer look at the crochet technique that was used.
