"As long as they're not building a dam on someone's property, beavers are beloved animals and even the mascot of several schools. If you're a beaver lover, crochet a few of these potholders for your kitchen. You can also use them as hot pads to protect surfaces from hot pans. This easy crochet pattern is quick to make with a double strand of cotton worsted yarn. You may even have the right colors in your stash already. Use a single strand of yarn to make a smaller beaver as a coaster. Potholder measures approximately 8” wide x 6” tall (including ears).
