As the first pattern, we are going to make crochet pig potholder. This pattern is so simple to crochet.

First, you need to make two flat circles. After adding facial features on to the one flat circle you will see a cute piggie face. The next step is joining these two circles together to get a double thickness. And it will cover the yarn ends on the wrong side of the pig face. You will love this cute piggie face on a round potholder.
