Free Pattern: Double Knit Potholder

dobule knit potholder lauras knitsI recently got into double knitting, where you make two stockinette surfaces at once in two different colors, and while I’ve been meaning to make a double knit potholder for a while, I haven’t quite gotten to it yet (the “to knit” list is always longer than the time available for knitting!).

But this double knit potholder from Laura’s Knits (available as a free Ravelry download) is a really cute choice for people who don’t want to design their own. It’s a really simple and pretty pattern of four hearts linked with a little cross shape. Worked in red and white cotton yarn, this is also a pretty inexpensive project, and the double knitting makes it a really fun technique. Knit this one around non-knitters and they’ll think you’re magic.
