This is a pattern for a dragonfly designed double knit potholder. The double knitting creates a double thick fabric which is good for protecting hands and counters.

Each side is worked stockinette stitch on both sides, so it is reversible with the back side being an inverse of the colors on the front side. It includes my own method for cast-off which creates a solid unified looking edge.

The ombre color is optional, but I think it gives the illusion that there is a pond out of focus in the background. The pattern comes with other color options. Also, there are blank coloring charts included with the pattern to help you select colors for your own unique design of your potholder.

The pattern pdf includes:
• Photo of finished item (front and back)
• Supply list
• Abbreviations
• Pictures of Color options (Primarily based on Sugar N Cream Yarns)
• Written instruction
• 2 Color Charts - One for each side (while knitting even & odd rows)
• 2 Uncolored charts of the rooster design to test out your own color combinations with color pencils or to ‘print screen’ and paste into Microsoft paint to pour color into the squares.

The yarn requirement for each color is 55 - 58 yards for each color when knit to gauge. Add more yardage if you double knit on the loose side.
