Chain 26 with edge color (color A) ,
turn and work sc in 2nd chain from hook untill end of row (25sc).
Turn and change color (color B)
Row 1: (color B): 1 sc, 1 dc//1tr (insert hook in stitch of the previous row);
* 1 sc, 1 dc//1tr* repeat * - * across row.
Row 2: (color B): 25 sc
Row 3: (color A): = ROUND 1
Row 4: (color A): = ROUND 2
Continue crocheting until piece is square. Work 1 row sc around potholder to finish the edging.
To make handle: Chain 20. Join in the dc with a sl st. Fasten off tightly. Weave in ends.
My extra comments:
Sc's are worked regularly, but all dc's in this pattern are worked in "row -2". (i.e. if you are at row 3, you insert your hook in a row 1stitch)
When changing colors I change the order of sc,dc. i.e. Row 1: (color B): *1sc, 1dc* repeat * - * across row. Row 3: (color A): *1dc, 1sc* repeat * - * across row
