Ammonite Potholders

"I always wanted to knit a spiral from within, but I didn't quite know how to go about it. I got a first idea when I thought about it waiting for my train in the morning ... something like: knit small triangles with short rows, increase one stitch per triangle and so on. Then I tried it the next time I had some time as well as the materials (yarn and needles - on a longer train journey :) It made me quite proud to manage it in one color, but you need the right yarn to make the shape show up nicely ... and I didn't find that sort of yarn in cotton. So the obvious solution was to use a second color for contours. These pieces can be used as potholders or coasters or as washcloths. Since they are done in intarsia, they look good from WS, too. They are knitted all in garter stitch which gives them a nice squishy texture."

I love these potholders! They're beautiful and visually interesting, and gives an opportunity to try out intarsia and get comfortable with it on a small scale. Definitely going on my list to try!

This pattern actually uses very small amounts of aran weight yarn, will be a great stash buster for the small bits leftover from all those dishcloths.
