Breakfast on a gloomy day

It was dark this morning,
but at least my new potholder perked up the breakfast table.

I decided on a dark brown backside and edging.
It makes the light blue really pop out,
- plus this colour combination has a certain nostalgic feel.

The Japanese crochet book had a photo of this potholder
- with a nice border,
but unfortunately the matching pattern lacked the border.
So I improvised something similar.

I think this pattern would work great for bags, cushions or small plaids too.
