I love baking for christmas. Apart from the result - sweet cookies - there is also the experience of making them with your own hands and it makes your home smell lovely.
Christmas baking can even be more fun, if you have a bit of christmas themed equipment - like these cute potholders with a christmas tree motif.
This potholder is knitted in a combination of short rows and intarsia. That way you don’t have to carry long strands on the WS and the WS looks presentable. The picture below shows the RS and WS of the piece. I used DK weight cotton yarn, but other yarn weights may be used as well.

Tannenbäumchen is the german word for a small christmas tree - or fir tree to exact.
