Rose Crochet Potholder, In Progress

I am using two squares from a bedspread pattern to make this rose potholder in white, shaded yellows, and green. The two sides are stitched together with a border using double crochet, chains, and picots. Potholder is crafted with #10 bedspread cotton and a #7 steel hook.

This pattern is from the 1959 Coats and Clark's book "Crochet Favorites Old and New" which also features instructions for doilies, motifs, a hankerchief edging, and a tablecloth.

If you wanted to make the Rose Bower bedspread you would need 77 flower motifs as well as 76 plain motifs for a single bed, and 94 flower motifs and 93 plain motifs for a double bed. Spread has a fringed edging.
