Knit Pot Holders and Hotpads


Summer Fruit Pot HoldersHot pads are something often overlooked in the typical kitchen.  They end up shoved in drawers and forgotten, or are used perhaps a bit beyond their natural life span.  However, wool is actually a prime material to use for hot pads; it’s a naturally fire-resistant fiber that, at worst, will merely singe (unless you’re throwing the pot holder directly into a fire).  These knitted hot patterns will be a joy to create and use.  Adding a little bit of decorative flair to your table is easy with these free knitting patterns, and they’re great stash busters to boot. You’ll be sure to get plenty of compliments if you use one of these at your next cookout or family dinner.
