My Polish Star Potholder is almost finished

I signed up for a course on Coursera, where you can learn for free, so it took me longer to get back to this than I thought, and I didn’t even do the optional reading assignment. I only got as far as downloading to book to my Kindle.   Honestly, I am so busy in retirement that I am beginning to wonder how I ever found time to work!

Then, when I finally wove my potholder that I mentioned on February 6,  I found that my camera battery died, so I had to wait another day to show you what I did, and provide myself with a reminder of what I did for the next one I crochet.  Short term memory goes first!

Step 1- cross center 4 loops by inserting one on right into one on left:


Step 2 – insert coral loops into red loop directly below:


Step 3 – Insert red loops into coral loops directly below:

Tomorrow I hope to finish the back and attach it.  Wish me luck!
