Grammy's Favorite Potholders_1

"I have to thank my wonderful mother-in-law for providing the inspiration for this project! She recently sent me one of her favorite, handmade potholders. Her's was crocheted, likely by some lovely friend or family member. The pretty stripes and simple design inspired me to create my own knit version. The pattern is worked in the round, folded and the edges are joined to form the diagonals on the front and back. Its easier than it sounds. One skein of yarn is enough for one potholder."

This potholder pattern looks just right, nice and thick with a tight weave to make it perfect for holding hot things or being used like a trivet. With self patterning cotton yarn in so many varieties I'm sure I'll find colors to coordinate with my kitchen, or to make as gifts.

These are really thick and luxurious potholders, being double ply. Lily Sugar 'n Cream self-striping is great yarn to work with, too. Must make a set.

Love the colors in this project!
