When I was a child, about 6, my aunt gave me a potholder kit with a metal loom and cotton loops. Everyone got a potholder for Christmas that year, most especially my Aunt Dorothy. Not till many years later did I find a company making kits with metal looms and Their Own Cotton Loops - It was Harrisville Designs. I immediately began ordering Harrisville products for Shepherdwoods Farm shop. Well made, durable metal looms with stretchable cotton loops in lots of colors, safe for children.
Let your child become creative, design his or her own potholder. This type of "play' aids a child in learning math, colors, construction of sentences both writing and speaking, patience, decision making and other skills.
Kit includes metal loom, bag of loops to make 2 potholders, plastic crochet hook and metal hook to aid in construction of potholder, instructions with pattern ideas.
