These are thick and very well insulating potholders in modern design. Ideal to remove hot pots and casseroles out of the oven and always a welcome gift.

The pattern gives detailed instruction for two generous king-sized potholders that measures approx. 24 x 17 cm (9.5 x 6.75 inches). A scheme to make the potholders smaller (approx. 20 x 15 cm (8 x 6 inches)) is included.

Worsted weight pure cotton give best results in texture and insulating effect.

For 2 potholders you will need 90 g (3.2 ounces) in the main color A and 25 g (0.9 ounces) in the contrasting colour B.

Many thanks to my committed testers alexaapo, JStockert, mstenor, RatsAsPets and TimMc, who all gave me very solid feedback and helped a lot in featuring the pattern.
