About the Pattern

Knit these magically reversible musical potholders for the music lover in your life!

Music and knitting are both forms of artistic expression, and these Musical Potholders combine both in a beautiful decoration! Double knit, each potholder is reversible and, like magic, features a different image on each side using non-mirrored double knitting.

One potholder has a musical treble clef on one side and a base clef on the other side. The other potholder features different musical notes on each side. A beautiful gradient combined with a contrasting solid color shows off the design nicely, or you can use solid colors for a more classic look!

Charts are provided for each potholder and instructions are included for how to work these non-mirrored images. The finished size of each potholder is approximately 6.5” by 6.5” (16.5 cm by 16.5 cm). The color work design is chart only, not written instructions.
