I always think that washcloths or other really small items are best if you’d like to explore new knitting ideas or to just try out a new technique. It only takes some leftover yarn and a few hours to try it out, but if it works, these newly acquired skills can be in your next big project. For this little potholder quite a few interesting techniques are used - form a provisional cast-on, over short rows and intarsia, to grafting in garter stitch.
This “fruity” potholder will brighten up your kitchen and bring a fresh atmosphere to your home. Since it’s done in intarsia technique, the WS is presentable as well. It is worked flat and in wedges of short-rows. Alternatively, this piece can be used as coaster or washcloth.
